Week in Review 11/30

EWL WRESTLER OF THE WEEK AND FRESHMAN WRESTLER OF THE WEEK

Our Eastern Wrestling League Wrestler of the Week, for week ended November 30, 2014, is Aaron McKinney, who is a redshirt junior at Lock Haven University.  Mr. McKinney is from Imperial, Pennsylvania, and competes for the Bald Eagles at 165 pounds.  He redshirted the 2013-14 campaign, but is back on the mats for Lock Haven this fall.

Our EWL Freshman Wrestler of the Week, for the week ended November 30, 2014, is Brock Zacherl, who is a true freshman at Clarion University.  Mr. Zacherl is from Brookville, Pennsylvania, and wrestles at 141 pounds.

On November 30, 2014, Lock Haven University hosted its annual Mat Town Open.  Led by Aaron McKinney, the Bald Eagles grabbed four Mat Town crowns.  McKinney hammered his way through the tournament, opening with a pin in 1:52, then gaining a 10-1 major decision in the quarter-finals.  In the semi-finals he racked-up an 8-0 shutout.

In the championship finals, McKinney faced Garrett Peppelman of the University of Virginia.  Peppelman, out of powerful Central Dauphin High School, was 2014 PIAA AAA champion at 160 pounds and one of the highest ranked middle-weight recruits in the nation.  McKinney defeated Peppelman 12-1 for the Mat Town title.

On November 30, 2014, Brock Zacherl wrestled unattached at Lock Haven’s Mat Town Open.  Zacherl opened with a 17-1 tech fall followed by a 10-3 decision.  In the semi finals he scored a 9-4 win, then decisioned two-time EWL place winner, Bobby Rehm of Lock Haven University, in the championship finals 9-4.

Congratulations to Aaron McKinney, our EWL Wrestler of the Week, and to Brock Zacherl, our EWL Freshman Wrestler of the Week.

Further, the EWL tips its headgear to the three other Lock Haven University grapplers (besides Aaron McKinney), who won titles at the November 30 Mat Town Open.  They are Ron Perry at 133 pounds, Elias Biddle at 157 pounds and Fred Garcia at 184.

Also, we tip our headgear to the Rider University wrestling team.  On November 30, Rider, currently ranked #25 in the nation, hosted Clarion University and the EIWA’s University of Pennsylvania.  Rider defeated Clarion 38-3 and then beat Pennsylvania 21-12, to raise their dual meet record this season to 5-1.  Good job Broncs.
