It is time for some PSAC wrestling action this Saturday as Seton Hill University travels to rival Millersville University. This will be the first dual of the season for the visiting Griffins while the Marauders will be looking taking on their third straight PSAC foe. Millersville was overwhelmed by the Pitt-Johnstown team to start the season and wrestled Kutztown on Wednesday evening. That is not to say that Seton Hill hasn't been busy, they have already competed in back to back tournaments finishing second as a team at the Mount Union Invitational.
Dating back to the 2014 meeting between these two programs, history has favored the Griffins with them winning five of the six, including the last five. If Millersville hopes to reverse that trend they are going to need to wrestle at the top of their game. Their meetings have been close and it makes for a compelling storyline this season, can the Marauders find a way to win one or two more swing matches and pull the upset.
Seton Hill has three wrestlers currently ranked, but with the information that Damon Greenwald is out of the lineup for the season, they will be leaning heavily on their remaining top wrestlers. Head coach Brian Tucker is entering his eighth season at the helm and looks to have this team on the verge of a breakout. Millersville is still looking for their first wrestler to break into the top 16, but they have a very good wrestler at heavyweight and at 197 to anchor their program. Millersville head coach Kerry Regner has one of the youngest lineups in the country and is building for the future. Regner is already paying dividends for the Marauders leading them to their most dual wins in a season, first national champion, and three All-Americans in just two seasons. He will be taking on another young lineup; the Griffins feature only a single senior, two-time national qualifier and 2017 All-American Alan Diltz.
