Ugh.  I tell seniors this every year, college have no problem taking that money and sending you on your way if you don't learn to be responsible in the classroom.

EASTERN WRESTLING LEAGUE WRESTLER OF THE WEEK

 

Our Eastern Wrestling League Wrestler of the Week, for the week ended January 19, 2014, is Quinton Murphy, who is a sophomore at Clarion University. Murphy is a former four-time New York State champion out of Warsaw, who has been competing unattached this season at 149 pounds. He transferred into Clarion from Indiana University.

 

On January 19, 2014, Murphy competed in the Shorty Hitchcock Open Tournament at Millersville University. Murphy won the event, going 5-0 on the day. In his first bout, Murphy tallied a pin in 1:00. In his second bout he scored a 17-2 tech fall in 5:32. In the quarter-finals Murphy racked up a 13-2 major decision.

 

In the semi-finals Murphy decisioned (6-2) Ray Borja of the Naval Academy. In the championship round Mr. Murphy had his arm raised without having to compete, as his potential opponent, Andrew Alton of Penn State University, withdrew from the event after winning his semi-final bout.

 

Congratulations to Quinton Murphy, our EWL Wrestler of the Week.

 

Also, the EWL would like to tip its headgear to Rider head coach Gary Taylor. On January 17, 2014, Rider beat Bloomsburg in a dual meet 20-16 and that win was the 400th college coaching victory for Coach Taylor.

 

“There are only a handful of coaches ever who are above that number in the entire history of college wrestling,” said Rider associate head coach John Hangey. “This is extremely significant. It puts him in a very exclusive club, and he deserves to be there.”

 

Congratulation to Coach Taylor and thank you for all you have done for our great sport.

Not trying to bring up old news, but looking at the notes from the last four duals and then looking at who has left the program over last three years.  You have to look inside, what the heck is going on, from administration thru coaching

It should be noted that was the 2nd time this season that Andrew Alton has "dodged" Murphy.

 

Word is the Altons have been getting some mat time in and their match count up in at non-PSU events to get to the exact match number needed to still compete in the NCAA tournament without putting to much added stress on their bodies (like say a Big 10 season grind). Off the top of my head I'm not sure what that criteria entails.  As such, they aren't being pushed into wrestling deep into some of these tournament events, and have dropped out of a few of them prior to the finals.    If that is indeed the case we should be seeing them back in the PSU line up in the near future.
