UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Ten members of the Penn State Nittany Lion wrestling team took part in the East Stroudsburg Open today, both attached and unattached. True freshman Garett Hammond (Chambersburg, Pa.) won the 165-pound title to lead Penn State’s efforts.

Hammond was a perfect 5-0 on the day, putting forth a dominant performance with five bonus point wins. Hammond had two majors, a tech fall and two pins on the day and improved his record to 16-3 as an unattached Nittany Lion. Junior heavyweight Nick Ruggear (Oxford, Pa.) went 3-1 on the day plus grabbing a win over a non-collegiate grappler (which does not count in his results). Ruggear’s performance included a pin and a major was good enough for third place at 285.

Two Nittany Lion 141-pounders placed. Sophomore Michael Waters (Advance, N.C.) went 5-2 to place fourth at 141 while junior Nate Morgan (McCook, Neb.) went 6-2 to take seventh with two pins and a tech fall.

Junior Kyle Moran (Oxford, Pa.) went 3-2 at 149 and freshmen Caleb Livingston (Drexel Hill, Pa.) was 3-2 at 157. Senior Andrew Church (Erie, Pa.) was 2-2 at 174 as well. Cameron Kelly (Pittsford, N.Y.) picked up a victory at 141; Dylan Dailey (Danville, Pa.) grabbed a victory at 184 and Josh Rogers (Pottstown, Pa.) won a bout at 197.
