Carden Wagner and Emily Murphy became the youngest Bronze Level Certified Coaches in PA. Emily completed her Bronze as a Wrestling Leader and she is also the Youngest Wrestling Leader. Carden signed up as a club coach to get his Bronze. Emily and Carden are brother and sister and when on the mat they wrestle for Buffalo Valley Regional Training Center located at Bucknell University. A super achievement for these two youngest and I am going to challenge all the youth in PA to get there Copper or Bronze level done it is still being offered free from USA Wrestling.
Also any parent that might want to coach at our qualifiers or regional's and States this would be the time to get your coaching certification done so you could coach your son or daughter.

WOW what a day we set another record with over 370 girls competing at Gettysburg High School. It was a great day of wrestling that feature over 60 Youth and Middle School brackets and 12 High School brackets. The High School finals was a show within a show not only featuring great wrestling and had a DJ, lights and smoke and some super music. We also had PA-Wrestling.com Joe Youngblood to announce and record the finals and joining him was Leigh Jaynes (Head Coach at Delaware Valley College and National Team Member). Pennsylvania has formed a new group to try to get girls wrestling started within the PIAA and we lucky to have committee members Brooke Zumas and Leah Wright talked about SANCTION PA!
The event also saw the follow wrestlers pick up multiple state championships at the 3 years the event has been in Gettysburg Caitlyn Walker (3), Montana DeLawder (3), Riley Stoner (2) and Tiffani Baublitz (3).
Results of both Championship can be found on Track!
Congratulations to Kyle Martin for becoming PA second Gold level coach. Kyle I know you worked hard for this and the PAUSAW Board and the Wrestling community is proud of you! Keep up the good work.
USA Wrestling is excited to announce that we are adding an online bronze certification course to supplement the in-person classes.
Some of our coach members might have difficulty driving long distances to a bronze class or the dates/times may not fit into their schedule so we’ve launched this online course to help meet their needs.
The online course can be taken but you will need to have you new account setup and claim your profile:
Online cost is $80.
