PHILADELPHIA – Members of the Penn wrestling team will officially begin the 2013-14 season on Sunday at the 47th annual East Stroudsburg Open. The Red and Blue will have six representatives at the ESU Open, with other team members potentially entering unattached.
Donning the Red and Blue at the East Stroudsburg Open will be veterans Ray Bethea, Anthony DiLonardo, Eric Friedman and A.J. Murabito with freshmen Quinton Hiles and Jeremy Schwartz making their Penn debuts.
Wrestling is set to begin at 9 a.m. with 10 mats of action in Koehler Fieldhouse. Last year, Lorenzo Thomas competed unattached at 184 pounds and was the champion. The last time a contingent of Penn wrestlers competed at the East Stroudsburg Open was in 2008 when Trey McLean won at heavyweight and Bryan Ortenzio, Cesar Grajales and Thomas Shovlin were runners-up.
