(Hershey) -- The wrestling mats are about to be rolled out at the Giant Center in Hershey for the PIAA championships.

Pennsylvania's biggest scholastic wrestling meet begins tomorrow. Three days of competition will culminate Saturday night with the crowning of the latest set of state champs.

Kennard Dale junior Chance Marsteller hopes to return to the medal stand for the third time. Marsteller has an unbeaten streak of 121 high school matches.

Now, one of the country's top high school wrestlers is trying for a Class AAA title at 160 pounds. Marsteller could face another returning champ in Central Dauphin's Garrett Peppelman in the finals

The PIAA says there are no weather-related problems with a winter storm hitting south-central Pennsylvania on the eve of the tournament. Workouts and registration were on schedule for today.
