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!
