Re: 2020 Recruiting

The National Preps have a lot of very good wrestlers and a healthy number of great wrestlers. No doubt. However, unlike a tough state like NJ or PA, the quality drops off fast. There are so many under 1 minute falls it's ridiculous. You don't see that in state championships where there is a meaningf...

Re: PENN Dual

UPenn has nice lightweights: Colaiocco, Ferrante, Zapf and Revano are all tough. Artalona is obviously tough. Roger is building; it's a process. Not sure if he can come back to par with Princeton and Cornell but he is recruiting NJ well, but needs to get back in the PA game.

Re: Week-End Salvo

My assumption was weed but seems like every wrestling "source" said it was coke, which is an upper.....going to be interesting to see how all this plays out as Daton Fix supposedly failed the same test? Hard to believe they were just sitting around doing blow, one wonders if they were slipped somet...

Week-End Salvo

Final dual of the year tonight where Lehigh will beat Arizona State to run their winning streak to 11 and finsih the year 12-3. Just think, it very easily could have been 14-1. We've had a tremendously balanced year with numerous guys stepping up to fill-in and getting the job done. In fact, there i...

Re: Mat-Town Open II

I suspect both 133 and 141 will be opening round bouts for the 4 Lehigh guys involved. That makes it even and fair. And yes, it will likely settle post season entries....although Walter started over Minotti when he lost a similar type open tournament wrestle-off.

Re: Arizona State Preview

legger: Sal's is a good joint. However, when near campus, don't forget The Tally Ho and the ubiquitous Ho Burger. They have plenty of Yuengling and a side room full of Lehigh wrestling photographs and memorabilia. Crossroads that JDA recommends is a good spot. Shoot out to Route 378 south and there ...

McGonagle at 149? Different.....

Re: Arizona State Preview

A lot of close ones looking at the numbers. To win the dual, Lehigh probably needs to build a cushion at the lower weights and weather the storm.

Arizona State Preview

it is not my intention to disrespect UPenn as they have a few very good wrestlers but in the end, it doesn't feel like a close dual so let's skip over to the main event in Leeman-Turner Arena in Grace Hall vs IM dual #4 Arizona State. Lehigh has handily beaten the Sun devils the past 2 years--Zeke J...

Re: Bucknell

I would think the coaches are focused on seeing these two weights sort themselves out by looking at performance versus the same/comparable opponents. Style of opponent can also have a big effect. Especially at 133. Farro's lack of height and Lane's leverage come into play when considering the oppon...
