B-A students have the chance to see Alex Taylor and Evan Pellegrine wretle at states with a fan bus that’s being offered on March 5.

After placing at Regionals, Alex Taylor and Evan Pellegrine are to compete at the PIAA championships in Hershey on March 5. And for the first time, the school will be providing a student bus for kids to go and support the two wrestlers.

For the bus to be provided, 30 students must sign up for the bus and sign the permission slip in the office by March 3. Tickets for the bus are $10 and the entrance fee to get in is $8. If the bus is cancelled, then students will get their money back.

The bus is leaving on March 5 at 6:30 a.m., and is estimated to return at 5:30 to 6:00.

Taylor and Pellegrine punched their tickets to the state championships a week ago with strong finishes at the Sourthwest Regional tournament at IUP. Pellegrine finished fifth in the 285-poiund weight class, while Taylor was fourth at 160.
