The group of wrestlers heading south at 113 lbs. include some notable names from the Keystone State including a National Prep Champion, PIAA State Champion, and two State Finalists. Pennsylvania has some serious contenders for top eight finishes at 113 lbs. with National Prep Champion and Wyoming Seminary sophomore Drew Munch leading the charge. Munch went (2-2) last season at 106 lbs. in Greensboro falling to Doug Zapf in the consolation round. Class 2A State Champion Beau Bayless (Reynolds) will look to make his name known on the National scene in addition to a pair of PIAA State Finalists in Ryan Sullivan (Shaler Area) and Josh Boozel (Mount Union).
Moon senior Frankie Bonura went (3-2) at the Super 32 in 2016 and was PIAA State Medalist in Hershey. He will be focused on impressing college coaches in the stands. Additionally there are five wrestlers at 113 lbs. who were State Qualifiers last season. The name fans will become accustomed to in the coming years is Ryan Crookham (Saucon Valley) who is only an eighth grader but already considered a top youth name. Crookham dominated his way to a PJW Junior High State Championship in 2017 at 97 lbs. Last season Crookham travelled to Greensboro and not only came away with a Middle School Championship Belt but also was named the Tournament’s OW. Crookham will be a threat to the veterans and could pull off some big time wins. Freshman Brock McMillen of Glendale, a 2017 PJW Junior High State Champion, is an established wrestler who should fare well.
