Penn State DuBois Wrestling open dual meet season
Nov. 12, 2011
Penn State DuBois wrestling team competed at the Electric City Duals at Scranton University on Saturday going 3-1 on the day. Coach Park was very pleased with the way the guys competed against good competition this early in the season. DuBois was victorious over Washington & Lee 34-12, Apprentice School 25-21, and host Scranton Univ. 32-12. DuBois dropped the last match of the day to (UMBC) University of Maryland Baltimore County 37-12.
Coach Park stated “The win over Apprentice School was big, they are traditionally one of the best teams in the country. I feel the last match loss to UMBC was a matter of fatigue and some bad luck. This weekend gave us a gage of where we are at as far as conditioning and areas of technique that we need to address.” It’s a great start to a promising season!
