Killoran gets silver at states, Harvey 5th, Campbell 7th
The 2015-16 scholastic wrestling season came to an end on Saturday night in Hershey. In the final bout of the season, Tommy Killoran was competing for state gold in the 285 pound championship final against Bethlehem Liberty's Andrew Gunning. With less the 30 seconds to go in the 1-1 match, Killoran gave up a stalling point and lost a heart-breaker 2-1 to settle for silver. It was his second state medal is as many seasons for the senior.
Boyertown also brought home two other state medals. Junior Jakob Campbell placed 7th at 113 pounds to earn his second state medal. He finished his season with a 35-6 record and a career mark of 117-26. Senior Gregg Harvey closed out his final campaign with a 5th place finish at 182 pounds, also for his second state medal. Harvey finishes his career in 2nd place on the career wins list at Boyertown with a record of 168-40. His senior year mark of 52-8 gives him the most wins in a season in school history.
Before the finals began, Coach Ventresca was named the Pennsylvania Class AAA Coach of the Year. Also, Coach Haley was named PA Class AAA Assistant Coach of the Year. Congrats Coach V, Coach Haley, and the entire coaching staff!
