Twenty of the 51 area wrestlers who qualified for the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling Championships placed in the top eight, but nobody placed higher than Chestnut Ridge's Justin McCoy.
McCoy captured the 85-pound state title in the 9-10 age group Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre.
McCoy, who placed seventh in the same age group last year, went 5-0 with three pins and claimed the title with a 3-0 win over Shaler's Jake Pollack in the finals.
It's the second year in a row a Chestnut Ridge wrestler has won a state title.
Last year, Tyler Dibert won a state title in the 13-14 age group as a freshman.
Two other Ridge wrestlers finished second. In the same group as McCoy, Jared McGill, made it to the 80-pound finals, but he had to settle for second. McGill, who was fourth last year, was pinned by Pennridge's Josh Stillings in 1:10 in the finals to finish 3-1 in the tournament.
In the 11-12 age group, Ridge's Blake Dunlap was a runner-up at 90 pounds. Dunlap went 4-1, losing to Bethel Park's Nino Bonaccorsi by technical fall, 16-0.
Altoona's D.J. Hollingshead finished second at 112 pounds in the 13-14 age group after winning a state title last year in the 11-12 group. Hollingshead, who went 3-1, dropped a 3-2 decision to Southern Columbia's Kent Lane in the finals.
Also in the 13-14 group, Bedford's Jonathan Gabriel was third for the second year in a row. He took third at 77 this year.
Cambria Heights freshman Joe Davis finished fourth at 117, while Philipsburg-Osceola's Chris Thompson was fifth at 82.
Ridge freshman Austin Buttry was sixth at 252, and Penn Cambria's Nolan Link was seventh at 77.
Central's Jordan Quarello and Huntingdon's Jacob Oliver finished third at 105 and 115, respectively, in the 11-12 group. Altoona's Cole Manley earned his third medal in the last three years, finishing fifth at 75 pounds. Manley was a runner-up in the previous two years.
P-O's Derek Weitoish took fifth at 100 pounds in the 11-12 division. Huntingdon's Jonathan Wagner took sixth at 105, while Central Cambria's Max Murin and Cambria Heights' Biggie Gill were seventh at 75 and 125, respectively.
Bedford's Kaden Cassidy placed fourth at 70 in the 9-10 age division. Glendale's Brock McMillen took fourth at 55 in the 8 and under group, while Altoona's Luke Hileman was sixth at 45.
