a unique perspective

#9 Lehigh over #24 Princeton 34- 3

princetonlehigh
Just over 1,000 wrestling fans filed into Grace Hall to watch the Mountain Hawks pound the Princeton Tigers. This was Lehigh’s first action since suffering a tough loss to Penn State last Sunday. While both teams were missing starters Princeton was missing more of them for this match up. Cruz and parker looked sharp while dominating their opponents. 141lbs featured a face off of the highest ranked wrestlers on each team. Randy Cruz seemed to have the edge for the first couple of periods before Kolodzik could solve the unique challenges that Cruz presents. Some good wrestling by those two studs. Kolodzik is the real deal and is serving notice to the weight class. Cruz gets Drexel’s Pearce on Sunday to right his direction. From there Lehigh rolled to a dominating team victory. Preisch has knocked off ranked foes for two weeks in a row and did it in a solid fashion tonight. Lehigh is back in Grace Hall to host Drexel, after dominating Princeton last night and is currently ranked around #20. There should be a number of quality matchups, especially at the lighter weights. Princeton is back in action versus Binghamton Saturday.
