Hayden if he can get to the finals can beat Allison. Last weekend he was up 2 with 8 seconds left before he got thrown to his back. He has also teched Allsion in freestyle. Very beatable for Hayden if he can get there

Interesting neighborhood.

To digress further, I lived in several different places in PA, but very little experience with the Northern Tier.
Someday, I'd like to make the trip across US Route 6 the length of the state from Ohio to NY.

Any posters know that route well, and have some must see stops?
I've driven most of it, just not all at once. Beautiful scenery but little else. PA Grand Canyon is worth a stop especially in the fall. Not too far off of route 6 (SR 44 I believe) you can find the headwaters of the Allegheny River near Gold.

A high school friend has a dairy farm in Gold. He took 2nd at states his senior year. Was up by 1 with under 15 seconds and lost to a kid from Oil City I believe. He busted my elbow my Jr year - good times.

My original ancestors from France settled in Sullivan county. Farm is still in the family
Not doubting you, but that's interesting because to my knowledge there are not many folks of French descent in the area. Where's the farm, if you don't mind me asking? If you rather not answer, that's also fine.

Grizzly bear story is on a spoof site. Would be carrying regularly if their was a grizzly in the Pennsylvania woods.
Yeah, not buying a grizzly sighting in Sullivan County, or anywhere in PA for that matter.
This made me chuckle a little. Don’t know if I’d consider any part of Sullivan county suburban. Nice area up there, we go up for pa bow hunters festival every year.
A family member helped organize and run the Bow Hunters Festival for several years, LONG time ago. That event used to bring in and release several wild boar and organize a boar hunt, though I believe that was discontinued a good number of years ago.

I grew up in Sullivan County and years ago I could have swore I saw a mountain lion but I did have a few adult beverages that day.

Not exactly sure last name was Ball. Haven't been there in forty years. I believe the last name mag have originally Bahl they came over when Napoleon was defeated

The French decent came from my grandmother's side. John Bahl or Ball bought the land as the story goes. My great aunt and uncle's grew up in Troy area

I don't think it was Oil City. I coached once upon a day at Oil City. Our only state champ was Bret Ruth in (I think) 1993 at 171. If I remember correctly he lead wire to wire in the finals.

Yes they used to release wild boars. Now they have a steel boar challenge. Win that and you win a hog hunt. Many arrows get thrashed hitting the steel as the spot you have to hit to avoid the steel is small and gets smaller as the stakes get higher. Pretty fun to watch.

Solomon got pinned in both the semis (by returning state finalist Kurtis Phipps, who he beat last week at sectionals) and consi semis.
