BLOOMSBURG-- Several Bloomsburg University wrestlers are ranked among the nation's best according to two national publications.
According to the USA Today/Intermat/NWCA rankings Matt Moley (Phoenixville/Spring-Ford) is 11th at 157 pounds, while Ian Moser (Dover, DE/Caesar Rodney) is ranked 20th at 125 pounds.
According to the Wrestling Report Moley is ninth at 157, while Moser is 18th. Joining those two in the rankings are Ricky Schmelyun (New Oxford/Bermudian Springs) in 16th place at 165 pounds, while Jason Guffey (Muncy/Warrior Run) is 27th at 133 pounds.
Moley, a junior, was an All-American last year for the Huskies and is off to another good start. He is 11-2 on the year and was recently named the EWL Wrestler of the Week after picking up three wins at the Northeast Duals.
