Youth programs fuel Big 30's best wrestling teams
April 08, 2023


The same schools dominate the Big 30 Wrestling All-Star selections seemingly every year.

When star wrestlers graduate, new ones fill their spots. The area's top programs seem to do this seamlessly, and that was the case again this year, as three local powers filled nine of the 13 all-star spots.

Bolivar-Richburg, Port Allegany and Pioneer remained the class of the Big 30 in 2022-23. What do the three have in common?

They all have strong youth programs.
