    Attendance from 2010-2011 page ten

    HOME WRESTLING ATTENDANCE REACHES HISTORIC LEVELS
    Fans of the Penn State Nittany Lion wrestling team came out in full force this year, making tickets to see head coach Cael Sanderson?s squad compete in Rec Hall a hot commodity. The Nittany Lions averaged nearly 5,500 fans per home dual, by far the best average attendance at
    Penn State in two decades or more.

    Two of Penn State?s duals sold out, with the Iowa dual on Jan. 30 selling out standing room only tickets as well. 6,686 fans packed Rec Hall for the matchup with the Hawkeyes, the largest Rec Hall sporting event crowd since enhanced fire codes capped attendance at the building in the mid-1990s.

    (EDIT: Rec Hall before the Fire Codes being enforced would routinely have crowds over 8000 for Iowa & Lehigh matches with fans standing up on the track at the top of the building. I went to the USA vs Japan Men's Gymnastic meet in 1971 or 72 @ Rec Hall. that had over 9000 in attendance. -KR)

    The Wisconsin dual on Feb. 18 also sold out all available seats with a solid portion of SRO tickets being sold as well. 6,311 fans watched Penn State down the Badgers 30-12 on Senior Night. Six of Penn State?s seven home duals, including Iowa and Wisconsin, topped the 5,000 fan mark, including 5,527 for Penn State?s win over Pittsburgh on Jan. 21. The Nittany Lions drew a total of 38,182 fans to Rec Hall for seven duals, giving Penn State a gaudy 5,455 per dual average. Final national average totals will be released in March with Penn State almost a cinch to finish second nationally, which would be the highest national finish for Penn State in decades.

    For a complete list of attendance figures from this year, see the table on page five of these notes.

    Last year in Sanderson?s first season as head coach at Penn State, the Nittany Lions averaged 4,341 fans per home dual with the highest figure a 4,883 crowd against Illinois. The figure was about 1,700 more per dual than the prior year.

    This year?s average added over 1,000 fans per dual. In just two seasons with Sanderson at the helm, Penn State has essentially doubled its average attendance from 2,789 in 2008-09 to 5,455 this year. With tickets becoming increasingly hard to find, fans are encouraged to secure season tickets for the 2011-12 season early.

    Fans can make deposits on new season tickets by calling Joel Diamond 814-867-2557. Current season ticket holders will receive their renewal applications later in the summer. Current season ticket holders can add additional season tickets on their renewal forms. All new season tickets will be sold based on availability basis.

    Penn State?s 5,456 per dual average was easily the second-best in the nation (Iowa, which utilizes Carver Hawkeye Arena, led the country with 8,209). Minnesota wa a distant third at 4,479 per dual. The Nittany Lions and Iowa are the only schools this year to have each dual bring in 4,000 or more fans, going seven for seven this year.

    Not to bash my SID team, but it seems more like PSU was a distant second more than Minnesota was a distant third.
