Prior to the start of Saturday’s tri-match in Bardo Gymnasium, the Pennsylvania College of Technology wrestling team honored its four graduating seniors: Austin Clark, Paul Crutchlow, Logan Gresock and Tyler Myers. The four represent a core group that helped the team to its first Penn State University Athletic Conference Championship in 2012.
Head coach Schuyler Frey presided over the ceremony, recalling the group’s many memories and accolades.
Clark, a welding and fabrication engineering technology major from Elysburg, has been with the Wildcats for two years and, so far, has a 17-21 career record.
Crutchlow, an automotive technology management major from Morris Plains, N.J., is a two-year member of the team with a 20-17 career record to date. He earned a berth in the 2012 National Collegiate Wrestling Association Championships, going 2-2 with a win over the No. 1 seed.
Gresock, a construction management major from Wadsworth, Ohio, is another two-year member of the team with a 27-7 career record so far. He also earned a berth in the 2012 NCWA championships and, so far this year, is undefeated with a 12-0 record.
Myers, a construction management major from Centre Hall, has been with the team since its inception in 2010. He placed eighth at last year’s NCWA Championships, becoming one of the first All-Americans in the program. He has a career record of 46-22 so far this season.
The Wildcats get back into action Saturday, when they travel to Lock Haven University for preliminary bouts starting at 5 p.m.
