Cougars Visit Allentown to see PSU take on Lehigh

This past weekend, the 17-18 Downingtown East Cougar wrestlers hopped in the wagons and took a trip to Allentown, PA to take in an NCAA dual of heavy proportions. On Sunday 12/4, #1 Penn State wrestled #5 Lehigh at Allentown’s PPL Center, home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms hockey team. The place was packed with wrestling fans, and the Cougars were there to witness the fray. There were pins, takedowns, and back-points flying everywhere in a heated college dual meet for ranking supremacy. In the end, PSU nipped Lehigh 22-19, but the stage has been set for more head-to-head battles down the road at the NCAA tournament. The East wrestlers saw some great action, but more than that, were able to see the discipline, athleticism, and confidence needed to compete at that high level. Their goal now is to emulate as best they can what they’ve seen demonstrated by their NCAA heroes! Good luck at this coming weekend’s duals gentlemen!
