The youth wrestlers attended the first ever Washington County Duals tournament on 2/4/17. The boys beat Aliquippa/Hopewell 55-28 in the opening round, followed by wins against Bentworth (65-18) and Beth-Center (62-33).
In the championship match, the Hillers faced a very talented Burgettstown team.

Thank you to everyone that made the 2017 Hiller Classic Weekend a huge success. We had over 500 wrestlers from 6 states attend over the 2 day tournament and the most help we’ve ever had. We received tremendous feedback from the wrestling community and many agreed it was one of the best run youth tournaments they have ever attended. We continue to raise the bar with each event and our ability to do so is because of the great parents and families in our organization. Thanks again and remember the Odd Age is less than a month away.
The match at Canon Mac scheduled for 1/18/17 will now start at 5:00. The schedule provided at the beginning of the season shows 5:30 but this has been changed.
