SHU Wrestling Drops Two at Mid Penn Duals

Millersville, PA – The Sacred Heart wrestling team traveled to Millersville, Pennsylvania over the weekend to compete at the Mid-Penn Duals. The Duals consisted of an 8 team bracket with a consolation draw as well. The Field of 8 included: Shippensburg, Gloucester County College, Millersville, Gettysburg, York College, F & M and Thaddeus Stevens.

It was a tough draw for the Pioneers, as they were defeated in both of their matches. In their first match of the day they were defeated by Shippensburg, 41-10, and then in the consolation match they were beaten by Gloucester, 36-6. Although it was a tough weekend for the Pioneers, they had a couple highlights in junior Andrew Polidore (Wayne, NJ) and senior Sam Morison (Conshohocken, PA). Polidore earned a major decision over Tyler Erdman of Shippensburg in the 133 LB weight class, while Morison produced a victory by fall over Francis Slover of Shippensburg in 197.

The Pioneers are back in action on Saturday, when they take on the Drexel Dragons in Philadelphia.
