WPIAL Champion Wrestler Tyler Chappell Commits to Pitt

Published

on

Seneca Valley junior wrestler Tyler Chappell won his first WPIAL title as a sophomore, and a year later, he’s gearing up to defend his title and push for an even better finish at the state tournament.

While Chappell still has to finish his junior season and then come back to Seneca Valley for his senior season, he’s already decided where he will be competing at the collegiate level, and it won’t be too far from home.

PA Power Wrestling tweeted Saturday that Chappell committed to Pitt to continue his academic and athletic careers.

Chappell, who has put together a 27-4 season as a junior, enters the District 7 AAA Section 3 meet as the back-to-back No. 1 finisher in his section as a freshman and sophomore.

With a 37-3 record during his WPIAL-winning sophomore season, Chappell has consistently been one of the best wrestlers in the area. He knocked off Plum’s Antonio Walker to win the title last season before falling just short of a state title.

Chappell is 90-20 through almost three high school seasons, including 64-7 over the last two season, and he’ll be gunning for his second consecutive WPIAL title and first PIAA title as Seneca Valley concludes its season in the coming weeks.

Pitt wrestling just concluded their regular season, taking down Duke 29-12 to improve to 8-6. The ACC championship takes place on March 6 in Charlottesville, Virginia and the top individual wrestlers will look to advance to the NCAA championships in Detroit over the weekend of March 17.

Nice! Tyler is a very good wrestler and a great kid. He will make a fine D1 125 pounder. H2P!
