McKee, Marko, Parriott selected to USA Team at Pittsburgh Classic

The Pittsburgh Classic, formerly known as the Dapper Dan, pits the best wrestlers from the state of Pennsylvania vs the best of the USA.  Pennsylvania has historically been a dominant force in folkstyle wrestling, and has even beat the USA team in past Dapper Dan duals. 

Pinnacle Wrestlers Mitchell McKee(STMA) 138lbs, Hunter Marko(Amery) 145lbs, and Griffin Parriott(New Prague) 152lbs will be competing for Team USA in this dual. We are excited for them to compete in this prestigeous event. 

Social Media quotes from these wrestlers-

Hunter Marko(@marko_polo97) "I'm going to be representing Team USA in the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic at 145lbs with @twitchwrestler(McKee), I'm so frickin pumped!

Griffin Parriott (@griffsvo) "Honored to say I'll be representing Team USA in the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic"

The Pittsburgh Classic will be held on March 26th, at the University of Pittsburgh.  Here is the website for the dual, amazing to see some of the names of the guys that have competed in the dual(check out 1998)
