Penn Wrestle-Offs Scheduled for Sunday

2008 Penn Wrestle-Offs Probable Lineup

PHILADELPHIA – Penn hits the wrestling mats for the first time in the 2008-09 season on Sunday when the Quakers take part in their annual intrasquad wrestle-offs in The Palestra.

The first round of competition takes place at noon and the second round is scheduled to begin at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Matches will take place on two mats and all weight classes will be represented, including a few matches that will cross over weight classes as wrestlers gear up for which class they will compete in during the regular season.

Penn’s intrasquad wrestle-offs will also be taking place during Penn’s annual Coaches Clinic. This year’s clinic features 2008 Olympian Steve Mocco as well as Penn’s coaching staff and the staff from New Jersey’s Blair Academy. For more information on the clinic, click here.

The Quakers, who enter the season tied for 21st in the USA Today/InterMat/NWCA team rankings, open their regular season on Nov. 22 with a pair of duals against Princeton (noon) and No. 10 Michigan (2 p.m.).
