Readshaw honors Carrick wrestlers
State Rep. Harry Readshaw has presented a Pennsylvania House of Representative citation to the Pittsburgh Carrick High School wrestling team, the 2016 Pittsburgh Public School City League Class AAA wrestling champions.
Nine Carrick wrestlers won their individual weight divisions and the team won the title by large margin at the competition in February.
Carrick wrestlers combined for a team record of 227 points, nearly 100 points ahead of the runner-up, Perry, with 132 points.
Victorious wrestlers received from three to six points per match, depending on the final outcome.
"I am proud to salute these outstanding wrestlers," Rep. Readshaw said. "Wrestling is both an individual and a team sport, where individual wrestlers square off in their patches and the results add to the team's tally.
The citation recognizes the wrestlers, the team managers and also Head Coach Lenny Orbovich and Assistant Coach Scott Donald. They represented the school with both athleticism and sportsmanship."
The Carrick wrestling team was undefeated in the city league with a 7-0 record, and they compiled a 16-7 overall record during the season.
