Warren’s Fehlman recognized at Lock Haven
Lock Haven University wrestler DJ Fehlman, from Warren Area High School, has been named a 2019-20 National Wrestling Coaches’ Association (NWCA) Division I Scholar All-American, and as a team, the Bald Eagles ranked No. 22 among all NCAA Division I programs in team GPA.
Fehlman, a redshirt senior, was a three-time NCAA qualifier. In order to be named a Division I Scholar All-American, each honoree must have possessed at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and be a 2020 NCAA qualifier.
Last week, it was announced that Lock Haven ranked 23rd in Division I home attendance after averaging over 1,063 fans per home dual. The biggest home crowd came on December 6 as the Bald Eagles made their official Mid-American Conference (MAC) debut vs. Central Michigan. LHU drew 2,218 fans in that first dual of the 2019-20 season. Lock Haven also played host to two well-attended home tournaments and beat Navy in front of over 2,000 fans at Red Lion High School at the Rumble in the Jungle 2.
Fehlman was also named to the 2020 Academic All-Mid-American Conference Wrestling Team (3.20 cumulative GPA or above), and recipient of the Bald Eagle Award presented annually to an outstanding male senior who has shown dedication to both academics and athletics and has made a lasting impact on Haven Nation.
“I’ve given my heart and soul to this school the last five years, and I’ll never forget my time in the Haven,” said Fehlman. “Thanks to my teammates for pushing me every day to be better… and my coaches for giving me the environment to succeed.”
He earned 113 wins at Lock Haven after winning 136 at Warren Area High School. He was a four-time District 10 champion, and two-time state medalist in high school.
