There is still a lot of explaining to do as to why the Bloomsburg program has declined in such a rapid and egregious fashion. Additionally, I am indeed enthusiastic for what is going on at Lock Haven. At this time, the only thing that keeps me attached to Bloom is loyalty and a certain pledge I made, and my loyalty is rapidly being tested beyond all reasonable expectations.

Apparently, the media has already made the switch.

Three transfers are looking for fresh start with LHU wrestling program

May 20, 2016

The Express


By MITCH RUPERT

For The Express

LOCK HAVEN -There was no time to celebrate. No time to sit back and take a deep breath. Scott Moore was in sell mode.

It was a natural move. He's been in situations before where he's recruited big-time wrestlers. So when the likes of Thomas Haines, Patrick Duggan and Chance Marsteller rang the phone in the Lock Haven wrestling coach's office, he was ready to sell his program.

The three former District 3 wrestlers were all looking for fresh starts. Duggan was ready to move on from West Virginia where life just wasn't what he thought it would be. Haines was ready to move on from Ohio State, where as a heavyweight, he knew he wasn't likely going to beat out world champion Kyle Snyder for a starting spot. And Marsteller was looking for a fresh start after things at Oklahoma State just didn't work out quite as he had planned.

Moore fielded phone calls from all three who were looking to come a little closer to home. And earlier this week, the transfers of all three to Lock Haven were finalized, boosting the incoming class of recruits for the Bald Eagles which was already ranked the 14th-best in the country by Intermat.

"As a wrestling coach and someone who really wants this program to succeed, this is a coach's dream to be able to have these guys coming into the program," said Moore, who will begin his fourth year as Lock Haven's head coach this winter. "As you work through the day, you think about it and you see these guys and you think, 'Wow, this is exciting.'"

The three were as celebrated as any high school wrestlers to come out of Pennsylvania in quite some time when they graduated. Marsteller and Haines were both four-time PIAA Class AAA state champions, Marsteller at Kennard-Dale and Haines at Solanco.

Marsteller's name was often mentioned in the same breath as Cary Kolat as both finished as undefeated four-time state champions. Marsteller finished his career 166-0 and was the top recruit in the country when he chose to attend Oklahoma State following his senior season in 2014. Haines finished his career 174-5 and was the 10th-ranked recruit in the country.

Duggan placed four times at the PIAA Class AAA tournament for Cumberland Valley, twice finishing second in the state, including his senior season. He was ranked as the 36th best prospect in the country in the 2015 recruiting class.

Now all three are looking for a fresh start in Clinton County. They all figure to be in Lock Haven's starting lineup when the season begins in November as all three were granted a full release from their previous schools.

"When I was originally choosing a school in high school Lock Haven was one of my top-five schools. It was easy to go back and see this was the top of my list before and go back and see if it's still at the top of my list," Haines said. "It was a pretty easy decision."

"For me, I like coach Moore a lot. And I wanted to surround myself with a bunch of guys who had the same goals and they're into the right things," Duggan said. "This is a perfect fit for me."

The transfers have brought Lock Haven to the forefront of Division I wrestling. The program hasn't seen an influx of talent like this maybe ever. And it hasn't brought in talent as special as this since Kolat transferred from Penn State in the mid-90s before winning a pair of national titles for the Bald Eagles.

Moore cautioned the high expectations which are bound to follow such highly-touted wrestlers. He said the best wrestling from this group, and the incoming freshman class, is still two or three years away. But when that time comes, he believes there's a chance Lock Haven could return to the top 15 or top 10 in the national standings.

"Ultimately it's going to be a building stage and not an overnight success story," Moore said. "I think a lot of people are excited because we got these guys and they think we're going to right away be top-five in the country, and that's just not how it works at this level."

Can we expect Ghione at 133 with him making 61kg or is he still slated to stay at 141 behind Perry?
