Our stated goal is to recruit and develop All Americans and national champions. Absolutely important to wrestle the best if you hope to be the best. And as van points out, we were as competitive as anyone else so far.
Further, both Rec Hall/Bryce and Stabler are located in high school wrestling hot beds, perfect for both PSU and Lehigh recruiting. Great exposure for our unique academic/athletic college experience going toe to toe versus the behemoth state school athletic factory.
