The Red and Blue defeated both Princeton and Drexel at the Palestra this weekend to complete its home dual meet season with a perfect 6-0 record.
Behind dominating victories by the core trio of sophomore Caleb Richardson, senior C.J. Cobb and senior Lorenzo Thomas, the Quakers tallied their fourth straight victory in a 25-10 defeat of their New York rivals.
On Saturday afternoon at the Palestra, a familiar voice shouted out from the sidelines as wrestlers went to work on the mats.
"Work hard!" yelled Penn wrestling coach Alex Tirapelle.
Following his sophomore season, C.J. Cobb stepped away from wrestling after a decade and a half of hard work and success. But he does not regret his decision one bit. In fact, it was his decision to walk away that made him fall back in love with the sport.
Penn wrestling is finally starting to grapple like they did at the beginning of the year when the Quakers opened the season with a national ranking. This is no doubt a result of Tirapelle finally possessing a healthy and deep roster.
Despite split results, Penn wrestling should be able to move forward with confidence after a strong weekend.
