Penn State DuBois to Host National Wrestling Tournament

1/5/2010 —

In the very same year that the Penn State DuBois wrestling program is reborn, the campus will also play host to an all new national tournament.  The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Wrestling Invitational will take place on February 5 and 6 at Penn State DuBois.  This is the first year for the USCAA to sanction wresting as one of their affiliated sports.

 

"We're excited to be pioneers in getting the USCAA to recognize wrestling," said Penn State DuBois Athletic Coordinator Scott Feldman.  "We're also thrilled to have our own wrestlers on the national stage."

 

Feldman said five teams and 50 wresters will participate in the tournament. The event will start off with a team dual tournament on Friday, and an individual tournament will follow on Saturday.  There will be awards for teams and individuals. 

 

"We hope this brings a lot of focus to our campus from far and wide," said Feldman.
