Bob Ford/TIMES NEWS Pleasant Valley's Kenny Yanovich is one of four TIMES NEWS area 106-pound wrestlers with outstanding records.  Pound-for-pound, the 106-pound grapplers may just be the best athletes around.

To many, the sight of Jake Hoats or Colin Mashack walking through the halls of their school doesn't trigger the phrase "outstanding athlete."

That's because for many, the perception of a superior competitor is someone who stands at least six-foot and weighs no less than 180 pounds.

But while Hoats and Mashack, who are small in stature and barely tip the scales at 100, may not give off the impression of your classic sports figure, to those that follow the sport of wrestling they know better.

Ron gower/times news Tamaqua's Colin Mashack controls Lenny Ogozalek of Panther Valley during their 106-pound Schuylkill League semifinal match at Blue Mountain on Sunday. Mashack won the match and went on to win the title.

ORWIGSBURG - For the final five minutes of his Schuylkill League championship bout at 106 pounds, Tamaqua's Colin Mashack couldn't register a point.

That was no problem for the Raider sophomore, though, because after jumping out to comfortable lead against Caleb Bordner of Tri-Valley, he didn't allow any either.

Mashack used a pair of takedowns and a three near-fall points in the opening minute of his finals matchup to gain a 7-1 advantage, and from there he rode out his opponent the rest of the way to earn the only TIMES NEWS title Sunday at Blue Mountain.
