LOCK HAVEN — Chestnut Ridge alumnus Jared McGill made his college debut while wrestling unattached at the Mat Town Tournament at Lock Haven University, Sunday.

The freshman for Pitt went 2-2 and placed fourth at 184 pounds. He had two technical falls. He first beat Colin Fegley from Lock Haven by technical fall, 18-3 in 5:20. Fegley placed third in Pennsylvania AA last year.

He met Penn State’s Aaron Brooks in the semifinals, and the Nittany Lion topped McGill, 11-5. Brooks is a four-time Maryland state champion and won four NHSCA national titles.

McGill dropped to the consolations and had a technical fall against West Virginia’s Hunter Delong, 17-1. Delong is a sophomore who was 12-17 for the Mountaineers last year.

In the consolation final, he lost in overtime to Buffalo’s Lars Schaefle, a freshman who was a member of the German national team. The score was 4-3 in tiebreaker 1.

All four wrestlers that he faced were wrestling unattached as well.
