Waynesburg wins PAC wrestling title

The Waynesburg Yellow Jackets captured their first-ever PAC wrestling title by edging perennial PAC power Thiel in the 2010 PAC Wrestling Championship, hosted by the Tomcats at the Rissell-Beeghly Gym in Greenville.
The championship came down to the final match at heavyweight with Waynesburg holding a half-point lead. Yellow Jacket senior Melvin Warrick then clinched the victory with a 6-2 win. With the victory, the Yellow Jackets snapped Thiel’s 10-year hold (2000-09) on the conference title and earned the first conference crown for Waynesburg in any sport in five years.
Following the meet, Waynesburg swept both major individual awards, as freshman 125-pounder Alex Crown was voted PAC Most Outstanding Wrestler, while second-year Yellow Jacket mentor Ron Headlee garnered PAC Coach of the Year laurels.
