A first for a state ranked wrestler?
« on: June 23, 2017, 05:44:16 PM »

 Three-time Pennsylvania state medalist, Francis Duggan will be transferring to the state of Iowa and will wrestle for Iowa City West High School.  Duggan started as a freshman at Cumberland Valley in D3, spent his soph season at North Allegheny in D7, hopped back across the state and wrestled for Cedar Cliff last year and now is heading to Iowa for his senior season.  4 schools in 4 years.

Don't know about their wrestling program, but Iowa City West has a big time athletic program. I know in basketball they travel out of state to play other big time programs in the Midwest and also have schools come to Iowa City.

Indians, it must be a family thing.  His older brother Patrick wrestled for West Virginia his first year, Lock Haven the next and now has transferred to Iowa.  They may be good wrestlers, but I think there has to be something wrong with both of them.  What's really strange is every team they wrestled for are powers.  I don't understand the transfer thing at all.  It's one thing leaving to go to a better school.  But that isn't the case with these two.
