Downingtown East takes college field trip to pick up some lessons!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Friday night (2/12), the Cougar wrestlers, coaches, managers, and supporters hopped on a bus and took Route 100 North to the Lehigh Valley to watch NCAA #1 Penn State wrestle the Mountain Hawks at Stabler Arena. The place was packed to capacity and hotter than a furnace! PSU knocked off Lehigh 28-9, winning 7 of 10 bouts and picking up a fall and tech along the way. About 90% of the participants, both teams included, were Pennsylvania stand-outs in their high school days and it truly showed with the display of talent and work ethic. PA greats such as Megaludis, Cruz, Gulibon, Nolf, Brown, and Retherford all put on a show for the 5,000+ sitting in the stands. The Cougars picked up some valuable lessons watching the college giants wrestle. Now, it’s time to take those lessons home and put them to work as the PIAA season approaches! Good luck boys!
