Prior to the start of Tuesday night’s Penn College wrestling match, the team hosted more than 20 wrestlers from Central Elementary School in South Williamsport. The Wildcats gave the young wrestlers some pointers and moves, and invited them to run out onto the mat during the team’s warm-up. The match against Penn State DuBois brought Penn College its first Penn State University Athletic Conference loss of the season, but not without strong showings from junior Tyler Myers and freshmen Ryan Hart and Daniel Frankenfield (all pictured). The Wildcats travel to Penn State this weekend for the United States Collegiate Athletic Association/PSUAC Invitational.
