If you’re a college wrestling fan, there’s no better place to live than Pennsylvania.

That point was driven home in a very big way this past weekend.

It started Friday night, when a Lock Haven University team stacked with former District 3 standouts earned the program’s most important victory in a dozen years.

Mike Catullo likes to joke that the only real difference between being an assistant wrestling coach and head wrestling coach is that a head coach has more “paperwork and responsibility.”

Until recently, Catullo never had to deal with all the extra requirements that come with being a head coach. His sole focus as a longtime assistant was to coach his wrestlers. That was it.

Catullo, however, will have to deal with more than just coaching now after becoming the new Red Lion varsity wrestling head coach. It’ll be his first head coaching position.

South Western vs Dallastown wrestling

There was a period of time, spanning more than three decades, when Dallastown wrestling was the best of the best around York County.

From 1972-73 through 2008-09, the Wildcats won 23 division titles.

It’s a statistic that no other program in the area came close to matching.

For much of that time, Dave Gable was leading the Dallastown wrestling program, collecting 10 of the team’s division titles and guiding the program to even bigger things at the district level. Near the end of his tenure, however, the wrestling landscape around York County began to shift, and the Wildcats found themselves struggling to contend with the emergence of Spring Grove.
