The Lock Haven Men’s wrestling team hosted their third annual Crimson & White dual last Saturday at the Roger’s Gymnasium, resulting in a 21-15 win by the White team.
The Crimson & White dual is an inter-scholastic competition among Lock Haven Wrestlers.
The dual started out with a White team victory by 125 pound Bobby Rehm (Lancaster, Pa./ Penn Manor) ending in a 6-2 decision over Kaleb LeMaire (Rehoboth Beach, Del./ Caesar Rodney).
The Crimson team fought back with 149 pound Mac Maldarelli (Merrick, N.Y./ Nassau C.C.) in a 5-0 decision over White team member Billy Randt (York, Pa./ West York).
The 184 pound bout was cut short due to a leg injury suffered by Tory Bennett (Berkely Spring, W. Va./ Berkeley Springs) , resulting in an injury default win by Crimson team member Fred Garcia (Donora, Pa./ Ringgold).
The last bout of the night was a 285 pound match-up between White team member Harry Turner (Howell, N.J./ Howell) and Crimson’s Cody Mason (Jersey Shore, Pa./ Jersey Shore). Turner won by a 7-3 decision over Mason, securing the White team’s 21-15 victory over the Crimson team.
“The freshman looked great and really showed us a lot tonight,” Dan Neff (Quarryville, Pa./ Solanco) said after the match-up. “We’re all just getting used to being back on the mat.”
Neff is a redshirt-freshman at Lock Haven and is ranked No. 27 at 141 pounds in the Gregg Henry’s Wrestling Report Division 1 preseason rankings.
The Lock Haven wrestling team begins their season on Friday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m. where they will visit Shippensburg.
