Hazel, LHU Bald Eagles strong at Journeymen Collegiate Classic
TROY, N.Y. – For the second weekend in a row redshirt-freshman Corey Hazel (Spring Mills, Pa./Penns Valley) led the way for the Lock Haven University wrestling team as the Bald Eagles competed at the new-look Journeymen Collegiate Classic hosted by Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, New York.
The 2016 Journeymen Collegiate Classic featured a new format this year where – unlike a standard tournament – the athletes competed by seeds in different brackets and pools.
Hazel looked quite comfortable under the new format and rattled off three wins to go 3-0 and win his 184-pound pool and bracket. Today’s 3-0 mark helped Hazel improve to a perfect 8-0 on the season.
Ronnie Perry (Christiana, Pa./Solanco) went 2-1 and finished second in his 141-pound bracket and Gavin Caprio (Mill Hall, Pa./Central Mountain) finished second his 174-pound bracket after going 2-1.
Adam Mackie (Bechtelsville, Pa./Brandywine Heights) was 2-1 and finished third in his bracket at 184.
Thomas Haines (Quarryville, Pa./Ohio State) made his LHU debut and finished 1-1 (fourth) at 285. DJ Fehlman (Warren, Pa./Warren) was a perfect 3-0 and won his pool at 141.
The Bald Eagles will return to action on Sunday, November 20 at the Cavalier Duals. LHU will take on Maryland (11 a.m.) and host-Virginia (1 p.m.).
