Penn State Gearing Up For Nittany Lion Open

| November 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

Penn State University Sports Information

The top-ranked Penn State Nittany Lion wrestling team will send the bulk of its roster into action at the 2012 Nittany Lion Open, hosted by the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club, on Sunday, Dec. 2. The action begins in Rec Hall at 8:30 a.m. The event is not part of Penn State’s season ticket package and tickets for the event are available at the door.

Penn State is coming off a super start to the 2012-13 season two weekends ago. The Nittany Lions downed No. 24 Lehigh 29-6 on Nov. 16 and then won at West Virginia, 44-3, two days later in Morgantown. Penn State out-scored its first two opponents 73-9, won 17 of 20 bouts and posted a 58-8 edge in takedowns through 20 dual meet bouts.

The Nittany Lions will send nearly their entire line-up into Sunday’s tournament. While no team scores are kept, there are 10 individual titles up for grabs. Eight ranked Lions will take part, including No. 2 Nico Megaludis at 125, No. 19 Bryan Pearsall at 141, No. 6 Andrew Alton at 149, No. 5 Dylan Alton at 157, No. 2 David Taylor at 165, No. 3 Matt Brown at 174, No. 1 Ed Ruth at 184 and No. 3 Quentin Wright at 197. In all over 30 Nittany Lions are set to take part.

The event, run by the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club, will feature upwards of perhaps 500 wrestlers from over 30 teams from around the East Coast and the Midwest. Penn State looks to have over 30 wrestlers compete.

The Nittany Lions return to action in their Big Ten opener against the visiting Indiana Hoosiers on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m. Penn State’s full season of home duals is sold out. For information on which duals have a limited number of SRO tickets available and to purchase tickets, fans can call 1-800-NITTANY or visit the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office windows beginning at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Fans are encouraged to follow Penn State wrestling via twitter at www.twitter.com/pennstateWREST and on Penn State Wrestling’s facebook page at www.facebook.com/pennstatewrestling. The 2012-13 Penn State Wrestling season is presented by The Family Clothesline.
