The team recently won its second straight PIAA championship.
More accolades were given to the Canon-McMillan High School wrestling team Thursday—this time from the Washington County commissioners. The team and its coach, Chris Mary, are seen here after a certificate presentation. The wrestlers recently won their second-straight PIAA team championship. The team was also recently honored by hometown business Sarris Candies and came home from the championship in Hershey to an impromptu parade of sorts.
Police and fire vehicles escorted the team back into town this past weekend after the wrestlers won their second straight state championship.
Emergency lights were flashing and sirens were blaring in Canonsburg this past weekend, as area police and fire personnel escorted Canon-McMillan High School wrestling team back home from winning the state championship. A fireman from Muse compared it to an impromptu parade that was put together in a matter of a half-hour. "(I'm) proud to be part of such a wonderful community that is so supportive of kids doing good things!" said Holly Martin, who shot the video.
