Homecoming Weekend at the University of Pennsylvania brings an interesting opportunity for Penn Wrestling alumni and fans to reconnect with past grapplers while getting a taste for what is to come in 2012-13 as for the first time, the annual "Alumni Match" is joined by the first round of "Intrasquad" this Saturday at 5 p.m. in Weightman Gymnasium.

Admission is free for the event, located in Weightman Gym on the second floor of Weightman Hall located on 33rd Street adjacent to Franklin Field. Three matches as part of the first round in Intrasquad round robin matches are on the tentative schedule as are two alumni matches.

Intrasquad Matches:

141: C.J. Cobb vs. A.J. Murabito
149 - Mark Pinero vs. Brooks Martino

Alumni Matches:

Saturday marks the return to the Penn lineup for 2011 NCAA qualifier Mark Rappo, while also serving as the debut in a Penn singlet for three freshmen.

In addition to the current wrestlers, Penn Wrestling fans of recent times can again see 2011 NCAA All-American Zack Kemmerer, three-time Round of 12 finisher Rollie Peterkin, two-time NCAA qualifier Rick Rappo, former 149-pounder and Penn Sports Network color commentator Vince Cina and perhaps more step back onto the mats once again for the Red and Blue.
