Jimmy Gulibon was named Most Outstanding Wrestler on Friday night during the prestigious 45th Powerade Wrestling Tournament at Canon-McMillan (Canonsburg, Pa.)
However, the Derry (Pa.)
senior sustained a knee injury during the 126-pound championship bout against highly-regarded Max Hvolbek of Blair Academy (Blairstown, N.J.)
and his future is questionable until the extent of the knee injury is determined.
The Penn State recruit told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he felt something happen to his left knee during the second period, but he continued to pile up points to claim a 7-2 victory. During the awards ceremony, he had an ice wrap around his knee and he had to be carried from the podium.
Previously in the two-day tourney, Gulibon recorded a pin and three technical falls while becoming only the fourth wrestler in Powerade history to win a championship four times.
National powerhouse Blair Academy captured the team championship. Its individual champions were Mark Grey (132), Todd Preston (138), Russell Parsons (152) and Brooks Black
