Boys Varsity Wrestling · Hillegas on the podium again at PIAA Wrestling Championships!


Congratulations to North Hills Junior Sam Hillegas on his 3rd place medal at the AAA PIAA Wrestling Championships!

Hillegas breezed thru the opening round and defeated his opponent 6-0 in the quarter-finals. But the semi-final match-up proved to be a stumbling block for Sam on his way to his third straight PIAA title. Sam faced another two-time state champion in Julian Chlebove from Northampton HS.  After a scoreless first period, Sam found himself down 2-0 after a reversal in the second period. He was able to get an escape in the third period to bring the score t0 2-1 but couldn’t find any more points in the waning seconds of the match. His opponent went on to win the title while Sam bounced back to claim 3rd place and a bronze medal in the 132 weight class. It was an outstanding competition and North Hills is extremely proud of Sam Hillegas!!
