Marsteller, who missed nearly two years of college action because of some off-the-mat issues, went 3-0 in the New York tournament. The redshirt junior is now 8-0 on the season after winning the Clarion Open on Sunday, Nov. 5 by going 5-0 in that event.

At the New York event, wrestlers were broken into separate pools by seed to compete in a round-robin individual tournament. The field featured a number of nationally-ranked teams, including several top-10 teams, and the tournament featured a host of ranked wrestlers.

Marsteller took home the 165-pound Pool A title. Marsteller downed Lehigh's Drew Longo 8-3 in the opener and pinned American's Michael Eckhart in just more than a minute to move to 2-0 on the day. In the Pool A finals, Marsteller — ranked No. 11 in the nation in his weight class — downed No. 18 Cole Walter (Lehigh), 8-1.

Marsteller, who won four straight state titles at K-D and finished 166-0 in his high school career, has won each of his eight college matches this season by at least six points.

Lock Haven will return to action next Sunday (Nov. 19) at Army's Black Knights Invite.
