That was part of my response. I even provided a link to a source doc.

No, he did not throw an opponent to the mat so hard that an earthquake was triggered. That would be worth a donut, though.

I have it on good authority that the Lehigh Wrestling Club's Fall Mat Wrap for the 2017-18 season is in the mail. The answer to the George Sawtelle trivia question, and many others, will soon be revealed to all members in good standing.

The answer: George Sawtelle was the only Lehigh wrestler to win in three home venues. He won in the next-to-last dual held at Coppee Hall in 1913, at the one dual held at The Colosseum in 1914, and in the first dual held at Taylor Gym in 1914.

Until today. Scotty Parker won a few the last time EIWAs were held at Stabler Arena, has won in duals at Grace Hall, and just won in spectacular fashion at the PPL Center. It took 104 seasons, but now there are two.

The only other guy on the roster who's won at Stabler is Drew Longo.

Interesting. I believe Navy has had wrestling in 5 different locations, over the last 50 years. Bob Hope arena at Alumni Hall; their wrestling room in the Natatorium; the Main Gymn at Halsey, an Auxiliary Gymn at Halsey, And in their new indoor track facility (or is it an indoor football practice facility. Doubt if any one has competed in all 5, maybe 4.

But maybe the Milton Hershey School tops all. They use to compete in an older building that was the HS, and is now the Middle school, but I doubt if they have had any interscholastic competition there, since they built the New HS and the Spartan center. The Spartan Center has a main gymn that seats ~2200 and an auxiliary one that seats maybe 700. Common enough at HSs. But they have two other "gymns" where wrestling competitions occur. The old HersheyParkArena (district individuals), and the Giant Center(states).

Refer to pg. 43 of this season's Lehigh Wrestling Club's Fall Pre-Season Mat Wrap for the answer.
