    Kyle Williams ready for 3rd season at Fallbrook High



    By David A. Willauer-Contributing Writer-Fallbrook High School-Fallbrook, CA-Monday, August, 24, 2015-In his first year as head coach at Fallbrook High, the Warriors finished with a 3-8 record in 2013 but in his second season and for the first time in school history in 11 years Kyle Williams guided the Warriors to a 7-4 along with their first Valley League title in the first round was defeated in the CIF First Round San Diego Section playoffs by Granite Hills 38-7 on the Warriors home field. The last time Fallbrook had their last winning season was in 2003 where they won the Avocado League Title under former coach Dennis Houldren as they finished with a 10-4 record and were defeated in Qualcolm Stadium by Torrey Pines 7-3.

    With a career record of 10-12 Coach Williams discussed his squad for 2015 "We had our first winning season for the first time in 11 years along with a Valley League title our players are confident and talented as we return a lot of starters who are solid seniors and talented kids who are juniors we feel as long as we're competitive we will play our best football this season the schools that we play are good there are no easy games for our squad as we need to play well in order for us to be successful."

    "One of the talented backs the Warriors return in Parker Martin is a returning transfer back for us this year after his family was stationed in Alaska for the last 2 years is an runner for us he also ran a 4.6 in the 40 yard dash his speed is smooth and powerful."

    "Up front the Warriors return 6'4" 250 pound sr and All Valley League football player and starts on both sides of the ball for us Colin Dowling." said Williams." At qb will be Jack Grantham, with a good arm for us and hope to counter our running game along with his ability to throw the ball which we didn't do." "With an array of backs who are looking to run and to score touchdowns we return James Nicholas a very explosive running back for us last season as he ran key plays for us and also doubles on the corners on whoever their best receiver is we also return James Nicholas and Isaac Maxwell is a 6'3" tight ends doubles as a defensive end for and is a strong down blocker but his hands are questionable we have to continue to make sure that he is punting the ball and receiving the ball we are not waste a play."

    "Some teams to watch out for in the Valley League are Escondido as they put their game in the league as they suffered a lot of injuries last year and their record didn't reflect their talent level, San Pasqual 2 years ago played for the CIF Division I finals they are going to be good Valley Center has won 4 or 6 CIF Championships in the last 11 years those three teams that we have to battle every week it is going to be close and competitive you can't disregard Orange Glen they have won 6 games last year outside of the conference their improving which helps their kids every game for us is going to be difficult."

    "We open up against Westview High School which is a very talented team they are a bigger division then what we are they are big up front on both sides of the ball they have skilled and big receivers their qb is athletic they don't want to try to throw the ball far down the field but they are more of an intermediate passing game they want to hammer the ball with their backs and want their athletic quarterback to run the ball we feel like on defense where we can stop the run don't give up any plays."

    "Our offense runs the Wing T formation it started I was a defensive coordinator for 16 years the team that I had most respect in the county was Torrey Pines they run the wing t they made me study that offensive play as I knew someday we are going to run the Wing T this offensive formation has so many elements which is power football and you can go outside look for the action pass it is a do what you want offense as long as you stick with the rules it is the offense that Fallbrook used to run in the early 2000's when we had good years when they won their last title in 2003 and when I got the job as head coach this school is built for the Wing T we wanted to get get rid of the spread offense the Wing T offense fits our guys as our school had tried to run we are not going to be the biggest team on the field we are going to be the most conditioned and the most athletic we want to fire our offensive on all cylinders in the 4th quarter."

    By David A. Willauer-Contributing Writer-Wednesday, September 2, 2015-Palomar College-San Marcos, CA-With a career record of 82-57 win and ready to start his 14th season as football coach of Palomar Junior College along with other credentials of in 2009 where he finished his record at 10-3 along with a championship round of the Southern California Community College Championship game and finished 8th in the JC Grid Wire rankings.

    During his playing days with the Comets in the opening game of 1979 season where he returned the third longest kickoff return of 98 yards where Palomar defeated Orange Coast by a 36-21 score. After his playing days he has been involved with the football team where he's held different assistant coaching positions.

    The Comets have a lot of questions to be answered as they open up their 2015 season at Citrus Community College

    Head coach Joe Early on his team "I like the energy and the atmosphere were very athletic so is everyone else is that we have been playing I'll know a little more about these guys on Sunday."

    About the team in general: "Back from 2014 offensive side of the ball we have a couple of lineman back Mike Stevens from Vahalla High School and Charlie Stevens from Poway High School is out with an injury right now we have on defense we return Hunter Moore who will anchor one side along with Arnold Voa who was a 2014 redshirt and JJ Tahale at the linebacker slots in the secondary we are very young we lost 2 all conference players last season were athletic and they are going to do a good job."

    Quarterbacks "I feel that we have 3 good qb's anyone can play Tofi PaoPao out of Oceanside will be the starting qb on Saturday as in my son Austin Early and teammate Risaiah Busunto we have to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. We feel good about having those three quarterbacks and be ready for Saturday."

    Running Game: "The running game is going to be important where we have to control the clock be physical up front and any good football team can run we have to be concerned but we will mix up some plays a little bit but when it's time to run the ball will add some plays. " At running back we have Diviante Sells from Rancho Buena Vista High along with Garrett Fiehler who redshirted and he is back this year a new person that we have is Jacob Bedford, Sean Cameron if he can get his eligibility squared away there are 6 or 7 running back that can play for us right now we have to way to see how things go academically."

    Defense: "Our defense is all new with the exception of Wayne Gannon he returns from last year for our receivers and tight ends we lost L J Bailey who is playing with the Idaho Vandals and David Nolan who is a punt returner at Baker University

    Tight Ends: "Our tight ends are all new as we have Tyree Burton who played both at TE and DE last year is back at tight end again we have Robert Ursua who came back from the military." " Last year we have a 6'7" Fallbrook athlete in Jake Johnson who came to us as a quarterback and he redshirted and has improved his skills with his size when he put some weight on his bones he will get an opportunity to play for our squad."

    Prepare for opener: "We have one more high tempo practice tomorrow along with game situations if we get through that in a positive manner we have our exam on Saturday we are ready for Citrus College."

    -By David A. Willauer-Contributing Writer-Friday, September 4, 2015-Warriors Stadium-Fallbrook High School-After a 28-7 lost at Westview High School in San Diego last Friday things went the Warriors way as they displayed their Wing T formation as in Tubby Raymond who used to coach the University of Delaware Blue Hens would always run that play on 2 touchdown runs by Fallbrook running back Bryce Olivio as he scored 2 touchdown runs of 14 and 3 yards and contributed with 24 carries for 243 yards as they defeated Serra High School from San Diego by a 47-0 score.

    Kyle Williams on his Warriors performance: "We knew that we made some adjustments tonight after last week's 28-7 lost at Westview High School in San Diego." " I relinquished the quick calling defensive duties tonight and our defense was overwhelming on making a lot of key tackles and we bought back 2 former offensive coordinators to co coordinate from the press box." "Today our offense picked up the tempo and were successful tonight, last week when we played Westview where we lost 28-7 QB Jack Grantham scored the only touchdown for us on a quarterback sneak in the fourth quarter but just like tonight Bryce Olivio is our bread and butter ball carrier as he contributed on our offense early in the game he got our squad on the perimeter as the game went on." "Parker Martin is the only kid on our squad that doesn't play both ways he is a transfer back to us trying to get back into shape to run on our offense but I was happy with his performance tonight." "Jack Grantham my QB did a lot better at throwing the ball tonight this year we struggled with protection last week vs. Westview and he did some good things tonight along with some play action passes." "Our defense stepped and played well in a high caliber team in Westview but we had three back plays that led to our opponent going up 21-0 on some 3 back plays that shouldn't have happened we could correct our mistakes and improve in the secondary I feel will get better as the season goes on We play LaJolla and won 55-52 at our place last year we are expecting a high scoring shootout."

    Other Warriors scoring touchdowns were Taylor Padilla 2 carries for 11 yards along with a 1 yard touchdown run of 12 yards, Parker Martin 6 carries for 32 yards along with a 1 yard touchdown run of 3 yards James Nicholas 8 carries for 48 yards scored on a 8 yard touchdown run Nahshon Hagen 6 carries for 60 yards scored on a 1 touchdown run of 36 yards 1 safety for 2 points and a Joe Bishop 31 yard field goal.

    QB passing for Fallbrook Jack Grantham 3 completions out of 9 attempts for 76 yards and for Serra Jack Bradley 18 completions out of 34 attempts for 143 yards

    PC awakens, plays LBCC tough last 3 quarters

    ESCONDIDO (9-12-2015) -- Palomar did everything it could to continually shoot itself in the foot in the first quarter, climbed back into the game over the last three periods but dropped a sloppy 27-17 decision to nationally 10th-ranked Long Beach City College on Saturday evening at Wilson Stadium.

    The Comets saw their record dip to 1-1 in the non-conference match-up. The Vikings, who also came in ranked No. 4 in the state, upped their record to 2-0.

    Palomar couldn't have created more problems for itself than it did in falling behind 20-0 after one quarter. On their first three plays from scrimmage, they turned the ball over three times on bad center snaps / mishandled snaps out of their spread offense. Various penalties and further breakdowns also played into Long Beach's hands as the Vikings jumped out to a 20-0 lead on a field goal, a 28-yard touchdown pass, a 1-yard TD run and another field goal.

    The Comets appeared to get back into the game after trailing 10-0, as Davante Sayles broke off an apparent 68-yard touchdown run. But the play was brought back due to a holding call back at the line of scrimmage.

    Getting a big effort from its defensive unit, Palomar outscored the visitors 17-7 over the last three quarters, 14-0 in the fourth quarter.

    Reggie Wilson got the Comets on the board with 23 seconds left in the second quarter on a 31-yard field goal, making it 20-3 at the half. After LBCC tacked on a touchdown pass to lead 27-3 after three quarters, Palomar rebounded for 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter on two Risaiah Bursurto TD passes, a 20-yarder to Cameron Calhoun and a 10-yarder to Evan Gray, and a two-point convrsion pass from Bursurto to Jaron Locke.

    The Comets almost did more in the fourth quarter than just get back in the game. But Busurto's 63-yard run on a keeper which would have given them a first-and-goal at the 1-yard line was also nullified by a penalty at the line of scrimmage, and two passes into the end zone fell barely incomplete.

    By this time Palomar had completely turned the momentum around, with Long Beach losing its composure and piling up 234 yards in penalties for the game. The teams combined for 331 penalty yards between them.

    Also for the Comets, Austin Early had an 81-yard run, Shawn Cameron contributed four kickoffs for 94 yardsand Wayne Ganan returned three punts for 64 yards. Michael Prayer and Abdullah Webster intercepted passes. J.D. Fox recorded a sack, and Arnold Voa had two tackles for loss.

    The Comets, who are attempting to overcome a series of injuries on the offensive line, will be back in action in another non-conference game next Saturday at 6 p.m. when they host resurgent San Diego Mesa, which advanced to 2-0 Saturday night by beating Los Angeles Southwest.

    Chris Brown and Beau Gallagos sparks undefeated El Camino in win over Fallbrook-Herb Meyer Stadium-El Camino High School-Oceanside,CA-Friday, September 25, 2015: The El Camino Wildcats ranked 5th in the San Diego CIF Division improves their record to 4-0 as they defeated the 2-3 Warriors of Fallbrook HIgh by a 13-6 score.

    Kyle Williams Head Football Coach at Fallbrook High School: “I don’t know how I feel right now we just finished playing El Camino, the 5th ranked team in the county, their defense is one of the best along with solid athletes we knew that we had a chance to play with them it would be a low scoring football game.” We recovered 4 or 5 fumbles and we are proud as our squad came here to win and knew its going to be a battle as we started well on the opening drives they were able to adjust when we had the ball on the 2 and couldn’t get in and score but in the red zone in both the 3rd and 4th quarter our squad had negative plays and penalties which started to hurt us a bit.”

    “Beau Gallagos threw the ball well and their offense is physical and explosive as we had to got to their guys our defense stopped them on the ground in the second half we wanted to make them throw on 3rd and long so we can get our dime package on them for them to throw the ball which is a bit our game plan which was successful for the most part.” “Bryce Olivos (11 carries for 30 yards tonight) leads our squad in touchdowns and he scored 6 td’s and is the workhorse for our squad. ”

    ” Antonio Gomez made his 2nd start in a row after the injury to starting qb Jack Grantham our starting qb and should be back from an injury for the Escondido (Gomez)has played well and is a great faker we exploited their man coverage too many times and had to take our changes and turnovers which hurt us a lot.”

    Fallbrook scored their points in the 3rd and 4th quarter as Joe Bishop connected on field goals of 41 and 24.

    El Camino will take on San Pasqual High School on the road next Friday while Fallbrook will have a bye week on October 1st.

Willauer-Fallbrook High School-Fallbrook, CA-10-16-15: In a Valley League Football game on a Teachers and Staff night in Warriors Stadium the Valley Center Jaguars stole the spotlight behind the outstanding running performance of Jake Newman as he carried the ball 41 times for 231 yards scored two touchdown runs of 2 yards each along with an 8 yarder and a 35 yarder and field goal kicker Rod Rodriguez connected on field goals of 35 and 37 yards as they defeated Fallbrook at 3-4, 1-1 in conference play by a 32-21 score.

    QB Rhett Riley 8 completions out of 17 attempts for 58 yards for Valley Center.

    Kyle Williams Fallbrook Head Football Coach: “I thought our kids went hard and played a competitive Valley Center football squad, they have a good football tradition and we knew that we were in for a battle.” “We made too many mistakes on defense but on offense we had more explosive plays and had a chance to score at the end of the first half.” “Everytime the ball gets in our possession that we had by the time we had the ball we missed a field goal before the end we were down by 9 points at the half we came back and scored and gave up a late touchdown on 3rd and long we were in a defensive package called the bunch formation on that play is where we shift out of the zone and had to stop the coral route our guys didn’t cover the play which is a blown coverage and on first and goal for Valley Center instead of kicking the field goal they made good offensive plays as our defense made too many mistakes but the kids have to learn from their errors.” “Our goal is to get a share of the Valley League title and also to make the CIF Football Playoffs as Valley Center is a CIF Division III team and that was our second round game that we would have played and for us to be successful we have to win the games.”

    “Jake Newman of Valley Center with 231 yards rushing is a good player and is a vertical runner as his legs go plowing he broke a lot of tackles and their offensive line is big up front just in case we missed some tackles at the line of scrimmage he broke into the secondary and he is fast.” “JP Nichols ran the ball well for us tonight as we ran the trap all night that is when you play offense we had some explosive plays tonight.” ” My quarterback Jack Grantham was out for 2 games with a broken wrist he threw 2 touchdown passes last week in our 42-7 win over Escondido it is something that we need to do is to work on our blocking schemes better we will improve our offense that we need to do to and that is for us to do it in practice to get better.”

    For the Warriors James Nichols had 11 carries for 162 yards scored touchdown runs of 30, 68 yards while qb Jack Grantham 4 completions out of 8 attempts for 57 yards and threw a 23 yard touchdown pass to Parker Martin (1 reception for 23 yards).

    5 players Spark Fallbrook in homecoming win over Orange Glen

    By David A. Willauer-Contributing Writer-10-30-15-Warriors Stadium-Fallbrook High School-Fallbrook, CA-In tonight's homecoming contest tonights Halloween Title was called "Nightmare on Warrior Way" but the Warriors of Fallbrook at 5-4 overall and 3-1 in the Valley League found out a way to win and they did as they defeated the Patriots of Orange Glen by a 69-7 score.

    Parker Martin (2 carries for 69 yards) ran touchdown runs of 66, 3 yards each and caught a pass of 37 yards from QB Jack Grantham (1 completion out of 1 attempt for 37 yards) Jamie Nichols 1 reception for 15 yards) scored on a 15 yard run Nahshon Hagen ran a interception for 25 yards for a touchdown Jack Henenberg (5 carries for 92) scored touchdown runs of 4, 1 and 73 yards. Mark Lindsay (9 carries for 73 yards) scored 2 touchdown runs of 31 and 14 yards.

    Falbrook Head Football Coach Kyle Williams on the win vs. Orange Glen: "We played for a share of the league title tonight our kids were hungry after last weeks 21-0 win over San Pasqual, our squad played with great energy and toughness as they knew how to play together as a football team they came out tonight thinking it wasn't about the opponent it's all about us and we won 2 games in a row as I challenged our kids to be the storm." " Early in the game we had to take any hope out of their minds an tonight we did that by scoring on the second." "Our defense came up with 2 interceptions one of them went for a touchdown and we had a punt return down to the 1 yard line with lot of things that has set us up for the victory we were proud and happy for our guys like Josh Hennenberg, Gino Yslas, Michael Lindsay, those individuals don't carry the ball very much for us but they have a lot of expectations with the reserves in the game and I'm proud of their performance as in Parker Martin as he has contributed for us in the first half we're trying to not run the score up but had to slow things down in the second half we can't help it if we run basic plays but it is wonderful to get him back as he is a transfer from Alaska a huge spark plug for our football team he has done well for us."

    "Our next opponent is Del Norte has defeated us 3 years in a row it has been very close games but I haven't seen them on film as of yet but will find out after I look at it on Saturday."

    Orange Glen's 4-5 only touchdown came in he 4th quarter as quarterback Blaine Berry (5 completions out of 14 attempts for 115 yards) threw an 85 yard pass to Ty Dixon with the PAT good by Ray Poultsey.

    YPSILANTI, Mich. -- The Purdue wrestling team won two of its three duals at the season-opening Eastern Michigan Duals in the Convocation Center on Saturday. The Boilermakers claimed seven weights in a 30-9 win over Northern Illinois in their first dual and closed the day by beating Eastern Michigan 30-13 powered behind three falls. They were tripped up 18-16 in their second dual in a comeback by Central Michigan.

    Four-straight bouts with bonus points highlighted Purdue's win over Northern Illinois. After an injury default at 157, Chad Welch made quick work of Andrew Morse with a 15-0 technical fall in 3:04. C. Welch took the Huskie down off the first whistle and then tilted for three consecutive four-point nearfalls. An escape to start the second sealed the deal. Jacob Morrissey followed with a 14-6 major decision at 174 and Tanner Lynde (184) recorded the fastest fall of his career, sticking Quinton Rosser in a mere 1:13.

    In their next dual against Central Michigan, the Boilermakers stormed out by claiming five of the first six contests and building a 16-3 lead. Among those wins was a 6-3 decision from No. 15 Danny Sabatello as he knocked off No. 11 Zach Horan at 141 pounds. Doug Welch, the 13th-ranked grappler at 157, scored the winning takedown with 16 seconds remaining on his way to a 2-1 upset of No. 9 Luke Smith. An 8-0 major decision ensued at 165 from C. Welch, but it was the Chippewa's from there on out.

    Central Michigan won the next two weights by a combined three points and a 4:51 fall at 197 by Jackson Lewis brought CMU within a point at 16-15. A penalty point evened the 285 bout at 1-1 early in the third and Newton Smerchek managed to escape from Purdue's Tyler Kral for a 2-1 decision and ultimately the dual.

    Purdue and Eastern Michigan were tied at 9-9 midway through, but the Boilermakers won four of the five upper weights with three of those wins coming by fall. C. Welch's impressive day culminated with a 2:43 stick of Derek Davison to put Purdue ahead 15-9. Morrissey put up a 6-5 decision at 174 and the Eagles claimed 184 with a major decision to narrow the gap to 18-13 with two weights to go.

    At 197, Drake Stein was after No. 13 Anthony Abro from the first whistle. A throw by the redshirt senior that stunned the Eastern Michigan fans earned him six points to take a 6-3 lead into the second period. Stein escaped at the start of the second and threw Abro once again, this time straight to his back for a fall at 4:52 and his first-ever win over a ranked opponent.

    Kral closed out the dual with a first-period pin of Gage Hutchison. The 2:49 fall came after the redshirt junior reversed the Eagle for the third pin of his career.

    Purdue returns to dual competition Nov. 20 and 21 in a trip east to Pennsylvania for three opponents. The Boilermakers will wrestle at Bloomsburg, followed by NCAA Division II Shippensburg and Lock Haven on the Bald Eagles' home mat in Lock Haven.

    FIGHTING ILLINI WRESTLING


    @IlliniWrestling Sweeps EMU Duals


    CHAMPAIGN, ILL. – The Fighting Illini began their 2015-16 campaign by dominating their three opponents at the Eastern Michigan Open. In the morning, the Orange and Blue pounced on Olivet College with a convincing 42-3 victory. The middle dual featured an Illini victory over Utah Valley 32-6. Coach Heffernan’s squad wrapped up the day with a 34-6 victory over Clarion. 157-pound defending national champion Isaiah Martinez paced the team with three technical falls today after leading the nation (11) last season.

    "We looked decent but inconsistent in spots," said Coach Jim Heffernan. "It's very early so the errors we made and the inconsistencies that were there are all correctable. Steven looks great at his new weight, and is wrestling with a lot of energy. This will be a great weight class for him. [I thought] Francis completed hard and had chances to win two of his matches today. Andre looked a little tight today, but he will get that worked out. He's a competitive kid and will make adjustments. Both did some good things for this being their first time out."

    The Illini kicked-off their season with a midmorning contest against Olivet College. Francis Edelen fell to Michael Schmidt by a score of 9-5. After falling behind 3-0, the veteran grapplers took over for Illinois. Zane Richards started things off with a fall (4:24) and Brock Ervin added on with a fall of his own (2:14), taking a 12-3 advantage. Starting with Langenderfer, the Illini rattled off four straight technical falls, including a 17-2 tech fall by Steven Rodrigues in his first bout at 165 pounds. Two decisions by Jeff Koepke and Andre Lee, and a major decision from Brooks Black wrapped up a 42-3 drubbing.

    Jim Heffernan’s squad continued their day with a dual against Utah Valley. The Fighting Illini fell behind 3-0 again, but Zane Richards got the Illini on the board with a 14-4 major decision at 133 pounds. Brock Ervin and Kyle Langenderfer both grabbed three points for the Illini to extend the lead to 10-3. For the second dual in a row, Martinez dominated at 157 pounds, netting a 22-7 technical fall. Upperclassman once against sealed the Illini victory, as Steven Rodrigues, Zac Brunson, and Jeff Koepke combined for two major decisions and a tech fall. Black concluded the scoring with a 2-1 decision to give the team a 32-6 victory.

    A late afternoon match against Clarion concluded the day for the Orange and Blue, another dual the Illini ran away with, winning X to X. Francis Edelen dropped a hard fought 7-6 decision at 125 pounds, but Richards quickly grabbed the lead with a 23-5 technical fall. Clarion’s Brock Zacherl gave the Golden Eagles another lead after 141 pounds when he took down Brock Ervin 3-1. The Illini responded in a big way to take control of the dual when Langenderfer and Martinez grabbed a fall and a technical fall, respectively. Rodrigues, Koepke, Lee and Black all added decisions, while Brunson completed his second fall of the day (2:54).

    The Fighting Illini will make their home debut next Sunday when they host Southern Illinois Edwardsville and Arizona State as part of the Illini Duals on November 15 at noon.

    Stanford Holds Off UTC

    Wins the dual 19-16


    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Scoring bonus points in four of its five wins, the No. 24 Stanford wrestling team fended off Chattanooga, 19-16, Saturday, at Maclellan Gym in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The Cardinal improves to 2-0 on the season, while the Mocs drop to 0-1.


    The dual started at 125 pounds, where redshirt freshman Brian Rossi posted a 4-3 come-from-behind win over Alonzo Allen. Trailing 3-1 heading into the final period, Rossi started the third in the down position. He cut the lead to 3-2 with an escape and then was about to secure the winning takedown. The Homer Glenn, Illinois native moves to 2-0 on the season.


    The Mocs tied the team score at 3-3 as Chris Debien recorded an 8-3 decision over sophomore Mason Pengilly at 133 pounds.


    Freshman Joey McKenna, ranked 12th nationally at 141 pounds, put the Cardinal back on top with a 10-2 major decision over Roman Boylen. He recorded a takedown 30 seconds into the opening period and led 2-1 after the first. He added an escape and a takedown in the second to push his lead to 5-1. Boylen chose to start the third in the neutral position, where McKenna was able to secure another takedown. After Boylen escaped, McKenna notched his final takedown and ended the match on top, picking up riding time. He is now 2-0 on the year.


    Chattanooga’s Michael Pongracz cut the Stanford lead to 7-6 with a 4-2 sudden-victory decision over redshirt sophomore Tommy Pawelski at 149 pounds.


    Redshirt juniors Maxwell Hvolbek (157 pounds) and Jim Wilson (165 pounds) and redshirt sophomore Keaton Subjeck all turned in major-decision wins to make the dual score 19-6 in favor of the Cardinal.


    Leading 6-2 after the first, Hvolbek chose to start the second in the down position. After recording an escape against Chattanooga’s Andrew Webb, Hvolbek got another takedown and scored two near fall points to push his lead to 11-2. Webb chose to start the third in the neutral position, where Hvolbek was able to tally another takedown and collect riding time for the major decision. He moves to 2-0 on the season.


    Wilson, ranked fourth nationally, posted a 20-7 major decision over Dominic Lampe at 165 pounds. The Lodi, California native recorded five takedowns, a reversal, six near fall points, an escape and riding time in the win. Wilson improves to 2-0 on the year and 71-15 in his career.


    Subjeck capped-off the Cardinal scoring with a 14-4 major decision over Chattanooga’s Sean Mappes at 174 pounds. With a 4-2 lead going into the second, Subjeck tallied another takedown and two near fall points to increase his lead to 8-3. He opened the third with an escape and secured two more takedowns and riding time to seal the win. Subjeck moves to 2-0 on the season.


    The Mocs had a chance to tied up the dual after John Lampe posted a 17-6 major decision over redshirt junior Ryan Davies at 184 pounds and No. 14 Scottie Boykin added an 8-3 decision over redshirt senior Michael Sojka at 197 pounds.


    In the battle between ranked wrestlers at heavyweight, UTC’s Jared Johnson (No. 20) pulled out a 4-2 decision over redshirt sophomore Nathan Butler (No. 13). However, it wasn’t enough for the Mocs as the Cardinal held on for the win.


    Stanford wraps-up its road trip at the Hokie Open in Blacksburg, Virginia on Sunday, Nov. 8.

    SIX HOOSIERS TAKE PODIUM FINISHES AT EMU OPEN
    Three of Indiana's true freshmen earned top-three finishes in the Hoosiers' first competition of the season
    Bracket Results (PDF)
    November 7, 2015
    YPSILANTI, Mich. –
    The Indiana wrestling team opened the 2015-16 season on Saturday with their first open tournament, the EMU Open hosted by Eastern Michigan University. Indiana's 22 entrants displayed a strong showing, which included top-three finishes for three of IU's freshmen.

    "I felt like there were a lot of bright spots, a young guys performing well," Indiana head coach Duane Goldman said in his opening remarks. "It gave us a lot to work with and work on, and we hope to make some improvements going forward. We're still trying to shape our team, and this tournament gave us some looks at different weight classes."

    Eastern Michigan Open | Saturday, November 7, 2015

    Hoosier Podium Finishes:
    Elijah Oliver – 125 lbs. – 2nd Place
    Devin Skatzka – 165 lbs. – 2nd Place
    Nate Jackson – 174 lbs. – 2nd Place
    Norman Conley – 174 lbs. – 3rd Place
    Cole Weaver – 141 lbs. – 7th Place
    Garret Goldman – HWT – 7th Place

    First among Indiana's tournament finalists was freshman Elijah Oliver (125). Oliver opened his collegiate career with a dominating run to the final match, recording three major decisions in his first three bouts. Oliver's tournament run came to an end in the championship, where he lost a narrow 5-2 decision to Noah Gonser (Eastern Michigan).

    "He looked good, but he got a little tired as the day went on," Goldman said. "I think he could have performed better in the championship, but he lost a close bout. It was a great performance for a freshman in his first collegiate competition."

    Devin Skatzka (165) was another freshman with a finals run in his first tournament as a Hoosier. Skatzka opened his day with a pin in 5:42 over Zebulan Beam (Ashland), followed by an 11-3 major decisison over Alonzo Turner (Findlay). In the quarterfinals, Skatzka recorded his second pin of the day in 1:43 against Seth Williams (Ohio State), then won a 14-9 decision in the semifinals. Skatzka took second place after dropping a decision to Logan Massa (Michigan).

    No. 15/17 Nate Jackson (174) returns from a sophomore season in which he qualified for the NCAA Wrestling Championships. He begins his junior year with a second-place finish at the EMU open. Jackson won his first round match, 7-0, over Domenic Prezzia (Ohio State), and then followed with a 15-7 major decision over Dean Sherry (Rider). Jackson continued his campaign through the quarterfinals and semifinals with an 11-4 decision and a pin in 4:45 to advance to the championship. Jackson battled hard in his final match, but lost a tight 7-5 decision to Myles Martin (Ohio State).

    Jackson's loss in the final wasn't the result he hoped for, but his coach believes that it was a good opportunity to take his mental toughness to the next level.

    "He just needs to be more resilient in that adversity," Goldman said, referring to a penalty called against Jackson in the championship bout. "Things don't always go the way you expect them to go, and you need to find the success in spite of it. Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for him for his next time out."

    Norman Conley (174) was one of the highlights of the day for the Indiana wrestling team. Conley, a walk-on freshman for the Hoosiers this season, battled his way to a 4-1 tournament record and a third place finish as an unattached contestant. Conley won 3-2, 11-6, and 4-2 decisions on his way to the semifinals, where he lost to Myles Martin (Ohio State). He finished his day with a win in the third place match for his first podium of his collegiate career.

    "Buddy did a great job. He's a walk-on for us, but he's a really hard worker," Goldman said. "He's been a great addition to our room, and we were pleasantly surprised to see him compete this well in his first time out."

    The Hoosiers had strong performances from seventh-place finishers Cole Weaver (141) and Garret Goldman (HWT). Weaver won his first two bouts, then dropped his quarterfinal match in a close 6-3 decision. He finished strongly with two wins, including a 6-3 decision over Nate Hagan (Edinboro) for seventh. Goldman won his first two rounds as well, then lost in the quarterfinals to enter the consolation bracket. The Bloomington native concluded the day on a positive note with two more wins, including a decision over Caleb Gossett (Northern Illinois) in his final match of the day.

    Other notable performances for Indiana include Bryce Martin (165), who went 3-2 on the day and recorded a tech fall in his third match. Trevor Moody (149) and Alonzo Shepard (125) both went 3-2 and earned a major decision. Freshman Garrett Pepple wrestled unattached and went 3-2 in his first collegiate tournament, including one pin and two major decisions. Pepple also faced his first nationally-ranked competition in a second round bout against No. 5/No. 7 Johnni DiJulius (Ohio State).

    Pepple's performance stood out to coach Goldman. The freshman is making a major weight transition in his first year in the college ranks. In high school, Pepple wrestled in a weight class 20 pounds lighter than his current class.

    "Pepple did a really nice job, going 3-2 on a day that included wrestling against the fifth-ranked man in his weight class," Goldman said. "He's still trying to grow into that weight class. In high school, he wrestled at 113, and now he's up to 133."

    The Hoosiers had an impressive outing as a team in their first tournament play of the season. Although there is no official team score, Indiana ranked second in total points (511), behind only defending NCAA Champions Ohio State. Their winning percentage of .565 was sixth amongst all teams (min. 30 matches), and they ranked sixth in total pins and tech falls.

    "We find that encouraging," coach Goldman said after hearing their statistical rankings for the first time. "It shows that we're out there competing with everyone at this early stage in the season."

    Up Next: Keystone Classic | November 22 | Philadelphia, Pa. | The Palestra

    The Hoosiers have two full weeks to train and prepare for their next tournament, the Keystone Classic, hosted by the University of Pennsylvania. The Keystone Classic features entrants from 12 universities, including Big Ten foe Northwestern. Tickets and other tournament info can be found here.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Ohio State wrestling contact:
    Mike Basford / basford.16@osu.edu WR: Seven Champions Crowned at Eastern Michigan OpenThree finals feature Buckeye vs. Buckeye

    RELATED INFO: Full Ohio State results | 2015-16 Schedule | 2015-16 Roster | Follow the Buckeyes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram


    COLUMBUS, Ohio – The season-opening Eastern Michigan Open was full of Scarlet and Gray on Saturday, as seven Buckeyes were crowned champions, three finished in second place, one was a third-place finisher and one came in fifth.


    The list of Ohio State champions was led by seniors Johnni DiJulius and Mark Martin, but followed closely by a young group of Buckeyes that are quickly turning heads. Four of the seven champions were either freshmen or redshirt freshmen, namely Micah Jordan (redshirt freshman), Cody Burcher (redshirt freshman), Jake Ryan (redshirt freshman) and Myles Martin (true freshman). Nick Tavanello also took home the 285 lb. championship with a win over teammate Thomas Haines.


    Runner-ups for the Buckeyes included Haynes, true freshman Ke-Shawn Hayes and Kollin Moore, also a true freshman. Additionally, Kenny Courts was third and Matthew O’Hara finished fifth.


    “A strong start to the season,” said head coach Tom Ryan. “I think our overall depth was what stood out. The environment in the room right now is exactly what a man needs to really grow and learn. We must continue to learn and grow as we gear up for more challenging competition.”


    DiJulius (133 lbs.), a redshirt senior who three time previously has qualified for the NCAA Tournament, started out his final season with four wins, giving him 101 in his career. All of his victories were by decision, the final one coming over Anthony Tutolo of Kent State in the championship match.


    Jordan, a four-time Ohio State high school state champion who was 31-3 last year in open tournaments while redshirting, was dominant at 141 lbs. in his run to the title, picking up three pins and a tech fall before winning the championship match by medical default of fellow Buckeye Hayes. His fastest fall came in 4:06 over Malik Amine of Michigan.


    Burcher, who wrestled in 18 matches during open tournaments last year, was the 149 lb. champion thanks to an overtime victory in the semifinals (7-5) over Austin Thompson and Michigan State and then a tight 3-1 decision over Isaac Reinemann of Illinois in the finals. Burcher also picked up a fall (1:58) and major decision on the day, winning a total of six matches.


    Ryan, at 157 lbs., also won six matches on Saturday, three via bonus points. His preliminary round match was a tech fall (16-1), followed by a decision in the first round, major decision in the second round, technical fall in the quarterfinals and decisions in both the semifinals and finals. Ryan ousted Carver James of Illinois in the finals, 12-6.


    Martin, one of the top-ranked recruits nationally last year, won five matches at 174 lbs. and looked good doing it, picking up a tech fall in the opening round, fall in the quarterfinals, major decision in the semifinals and then gutting out a 7-5 decision over Nate Jackson of Indiana in the finals.


    Mark Martin (184 lbs.), a senior, was 4-0 on the day and won all four of his matches via bonus points. Tech falls in the first and second round sent him into the quarterfinals where he then picked up a 12-3 major decision over Dominic Carfagno of Bloomsburg. In the semifinals, he racked up 13 points for a major decision over Jimmy Szep of Central Michigan. Martin won by medical forfeit over fellow Buckeye Moore in the finals.


    Tavanello (285 lbs.), a NCAA at-large selection last year who missed a large portion of the season due to injury, looked to be in good form as he won his opening round match by technical fall (16-1) and then pinned Rider’s Mike Siwiec in just 1:27 to move into the quarterfinals. From there, he won by major decision over Terrence Cheeks of Edinboro, by fall over Jacob Aven of Purdue in the semifinals and completed his day by edging fellow Buckeyes Haines in the finals, 5-3.


    The home dual match schedule for the 2015-16 Buckeyes gets underway on Friday when No. 5 Ohio State hosts Virginia. Prior to the match, the team will unveil championship banners for Logan Stieber and Nathan Tomasello as well as the 2015 NCAA team national championship.

    Wrestling Downs Campbell, Falls to West Virginia, Arizona State in Season Opener


    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The Drexel wrestling team earned its first dual win of the season with a 21-15 victory over Campbell on Sunday at the Mountaineer Duals hosted by West Virginia. The Dragons won one of the three duals of which they participated in the quad, falling to the hosting Mountaineers, 26-7 and to Arizona State, 27-6 in the other two. No. 17 Matthew Cimato led the Dragons with three wins on the day, including a major decision against West Virginia's Jake S. Smith.

    In the first dual of the day, the Dragons went down 6-0 to start but then No. 10 Kevin Devoy Jr. got Drexel on the board with an 8-3 decision in the 141 match over West Virginia's Tony DeAngelo. Cimato then followed with his major decision at 149 to put the Dragons ahead, 7-6. Despite having this advantage almost halfway through the dual, the Mountaineers would win out the remaining matches to earn a 26-7 victory over the Dragons.

    Arizona State jumped out to an early 10-0 lead in the Dragons' second dual, but then Cimato scored yet again for the Dragons with a 3-2 decision over the Sun Devils' Matt Kraus. Later, trailing 17-3, Nick Elmer got a win for Drexel with a 6-3 victory over Zachary Smith in the 174 pound match. At 184, Stephen Loiseau came close to upsetting the No. 3-ranked Blake Stauffer, but was edged by a 4-3 deficit. The Sun Devils would earn wins in the 197 and 285 matches as well to secure a 27-6 win.

    While Campbell jumped out to a quick 9-0 advantage in the Dragons' final dual of the day, freshman Anthony Canfora started a comeback with his first career win, a 9-8 decision over the Camels' Zack Barker in the 141 match. Cimato followed with an 8-5 win over Quentin Perez at 149 and Richard Viruet added a 7-1 decision over Daniel Richardson at 157 to tie things up at 9-9. While Campbell's Paul Duggan took the 165 match with a 5-2 victory over Austin Rose, Nick Elmer, Loiseau, and Joshua Murphy combined for three major decisions in a row at 174, 184, and 197 respectively to ultimately secure Drexel's first victory of the season.

    The Dragons return to action on Friday, Nov. 13 when they travel to California to take on Cal Poly in a dual scheduled for 7 p.m. (PST). Drexel will then compete in the Road Runner Open in Fresno, Calif. on Sunday, Nov. 15.

With a place in the championship on the line, Gajdzik picked up a sudden-victory, 3-1, against Mike Markulec of Princeton in the semifinals. In the final round, Gadjzik’s run came to a close, falling to Hofstra’s Mike Hughes, 6-0.

    Badgers silence UW-Whitewater in season-opening meet
    UW won, 43-0, picking up bonus points in six matches
    On the web: http://go.wisc.edu/zj8zt0

    MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin wrestling team kicked off the 2015-16 season with a bang, Thursday, at the UW Field House, as the Badgers defeated in-state foe UW-Whitewater by a score of 43-0.

    En route to a lopsided victory, the Badgers picked up bonus points in six of the 10 matches.

    Johnny Jimenez set the tone early, pinning Logan Hanselman 4:41 into the 125-pound match. At the time of the fall Jimenez led 6-0 thanks to two takedowns and a two-point nearfall.

    Jens Lentz rivaled Jimenez's performance with a 16-5 major decision in the 133-pound match. He scored the first five points before surrendering one point to Brandon Peshek by escape. Lentz went on to outscore Peshek, 11-4, to finish out the match.

    "It feels good getting out there for the first dual of the year—getting my takedowns and riding tough on top," Jimenez said.

    "I had a lot of fun out there."

    The 141-pound matchup proved to be the most competitive, as Luke Rowh needed a sudden victory period to defeat NCAA Division III All-American and national runner-up Matthew Adcock.

    Rowh got out to a two-point lead before Adcock responded with two escapes to knot the score at two after the second period. There was no scoring in the third period.

    Coming out aggressive in overtime, Rowh needed just 11 seconds to finish off Adcock with a takedown.

    "It was a close match," Rowh said. "I knew it was going to be within a couple of points. I wrestled him (Adcock) last year and it was a close match. I ended up scoring early and didn't score until late but I'm just happy I won."

    Andrew Crone extended the Badgers' lead to 19-0 with a pin in the second period of the 149-pound match against Isaiah Vela. The Delafield, Wisconsin, native was up, 5-0, at the time of the fall.

    The 157-pound tussle featured TJ Ruschell and Brandon Arteaga. Ruschell registered two takedowns and a two-point nearfall, while giving up an escape to lead, 6-1, after three minutes on the mat.

    The junior escaped the hold of Arteaga in the third period to win, 7-1.

    Seth Liegel faced off against Thomas Gerszewski at 165 pounds. Gerszewski had the most wins for UWW last season, posting a 33-9 record and taking the WIAC championship at 157 pounds.

    Liegel had no problem with the conference champion, though, as he went up, 2-0, early on and never looked back. The Spring Green, Wisconsin, product won by a score of 10-3.

    With Isaac Jordan and Ryan Taylor not participating, Ricky Robertson was the Badgers' only ranked wrestler competing. He comes in at No. 10 on both FloWrestling and InterMat's top-20 rankings.

    In the 174-pound matchup, Robertson allowed Connor Price to score just three points, as the sophomore won, 8-3.

    Jake Stilling picked up Wisconsin's third pin of the night, defeating Christian Dischler at 184 pounds. The fall occurred in the second round with Stilling leading, 14-0.

    Eric Peissig held Bowen Wileman scoreless until the third period in the 197-pound match, winning by major decision, 9-1.

    Wrapping up the meet, Broth Horwath won, 16-0, by technical fall over Jordan Festege in the heavyweight scrap. In all, Horwath gathered two takedowns, two two-point nearfalls, two four-point nearfalls and two stalling points.

    The Badgers are now 6-0 all-time against Whitewater, dating back to the schools' first meeting in 1968-69.

    Wisconsin will take a break from team competition until Nov. 21 when it takes part in the Navy Classic, but select wrestlers will compete in the Michigan State Open on Sunday at Jenison Fieldhouse in East Lansing, Michigan. The event will include up to 250 participants.

    "I'm ready for some more competition and the opportunity to keep battling out there with my brothers," Jimenez said. "We have a lot of good competition coming up this weekend (at the MSU Open) so this (tonight's meet) was just a little preview of what we're all about."

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Ohio State wrestling contact:
    Mike Basford / basford.16@osu.edu WR: No. 5 Ohio State Rolls Past No. 23 Virginia, 34-6Buckeyes win eight of 10 matches, five via bonus points

    RELATED INFO: Online Release | WATCH: Highlights | WATCH: Coach Ryan interview | 2015-16 Schedule | 2015-16 Roster | Follow the Buckeyes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram


    COLUMBUS, Ohio – New faces, same results for the fifth-ranked Ohio State wrestling team. On a night when the Buckeyes honored their 2014-15 Big Ten and national championship team with the unveiling of four new banners from the rafters of St. John Arena, wins by three newcomers to the starting lineup keyed a 34-6 rout of No. 23 Virginia.


    Three redshirt freshmen – Micah Jordan, Cody Burcher and Jake Ryan – won consecutive matches to open a 20-0 lead after five bouts and Ohio State (1-0) never looked back. Jordan and Burcher won in dominant fashion, while Ryan came from behind with a last-second takedown to upset 19th-ranked Andrew Atkinson at 157 lbs.


    Prior to the match, the program officially unveiled new banners commemorating individual national championships from Nathan Tomasello and Logan Stieber along the team Big Ten and NCAA titles. Tomasello then got the match started with a 14-6 major decision over Nick Hermann in which he had three first period takedowns to jump out to a 7-3 lead. In the second period, he racked up four more points with two takedowns and led 11-5 entering the third period.


    Johnni DiJulius, ranked fifth nationally, followed that up with a dramatic 8-7 win over 10th-ranked George DiCamillo. Trailing 5-2 late in the third period, DiJulius fought back to cut the deficit to 5-4 on a takedown and then scored four near-fall points with just over 1:00 remaining. A staling point for UVA and riding time made the final 8-7, but for DiJulius it was his fifth win of the season and 102nd in his career.


    Micah Jordan scored early and often in his St. John Arena debut, getting four takedowns and an escape in the first period to jump out to a 9-4 lead over UVA’s Zach Watson. An escape, takedown and two-point near fall in the second made the score 14-5 and Jordan cruised to the major decision from there.


    Burcher got the crowd on its feet with his fall over TJ Miller at the 4:06 mark of the match. A native of Gnadenhutten, Ohio, Burcher improves to 7-0 on the year. He led the match 4-2 at the time of his pin.

    With the Buckeyes ahead 17-0, Ryan scored one of the most exciting wins of the night when he overcame a late 1-0 deficit but getting an escape and then finishing a takedown with just four seconds remaining in the third period. Ryan’s win, his first this year over a ranked opponent, improves his record to year to 7-0.

    Garrett Peppelman of Virginia got the Cavaliers on the scoreboard with a 5-3 decision over Justin Kresevic at 165 pounds, but reigning All-American Bo Jordan looked to be in midseason form in the next match at 174, earning a 17-2 tech fall over highly-touted freshman Fox Baldwin. Jordan, ranked No. 1 nationally, scored two four-point near falls in the first period in addition to two takedowns. He ended the match in the second with two takedowns and an escape.

    Another reigning All-American, Kenny Courts, outlasted Tyler Askey at 184 pounds, earning an 11-5 decision. Courts scored two takedowns in each of the first two periods and is now 5-1 on the year.

    No. 10 Zach Nye defeated Matthew O’Hara by decision at 197, but Nick Tavanello put an exclamation point on the night when he pinned Patrick Gillen in 5:45. It was Tavanello’s third fall of the season, tying him with Micah Jordan for the team lead.

    Post Match Quotes

    Head coach Tom Ryan

    On Starting up the Season“It was just great to get back on the mat. The preseason was long and grueling. It’s just nice to get back into the competition and learn about our guys and how they compete.”

    On the crowd
    “We like it raucous. People need to know that this is a very challenging, physical sport and it helps when you scream and yell. There’s no question it has an impact on the athlete.”

    Redshirt freshman Jake Ryan

    On coming back in his match
    “In the third period I went down and he maybe had 50 seconds of riding time. I heard the crowd growing nuts. So I hit a switch and finally got out and it turned out well.”

    On confidence going forward
    “We have a lot of tough guys in the room, the best guys. Training with them every day gives you a gauge on how well you are doing and coming in here and getting a close win always helps.”

    Redshirt freshman Cody Burcher

    On his pin“I was super nervous walking out on the mat the first time. I was just trying to get my cradle the whole time but he was getting out, but whenever I got that cross face I felt his back bend and felt it was over.”

    Parker Martin paces Fallbrook High in 1st CIF Football Win in School History
    By David A. Willauer-Contributing Editor-Warriors Stadium-Fallbrook High School-Fallbrook, CA-For the first time under 3rd year head coach Kyle Williams as he carries a 15-15 career record after tonight’s contest, in his first year it was a 2-9 rebuilding year to a 6-4 winning record in 2014 and made their first CIF State playoff record where they were defeated at Fallbrook by a 38-7 vs. Granite Hills but tonight the Warriors made history as registered their first CIF Division III win in 12 year history of the Warriors Football Program since 2003 under former coach Dennis Houlihan where the Warriors were defeated by Torrey Pines at Qualcolm Stadiun by a 7-3 score, defeated the 5-6 Lancers of Hilltop High School by a 46-6 score as running back Parker Martin’s put on a dazzling performance as he carried the ball 12 times for 196 yards and scored 3 touchdown runs of 98, 10 and 38 yards. Bryce Olivo 9 carries for 71 yards and scored 1 touchdown run of 27 years, Josh Hennenberg 8 carries for 48 yeards scored 1 touchdown run of 12 yards. Jack Grantham 5 completions out of 6 attempts for 80 yards and 1 interception threw 2 touchdown passes of 5 yards to Kobe Stallings (3 receptions for 53 yards) and Nahshon Hagan 1 reception for 22 yards 1 touchdown run of 22.

    Kyle Williams Fallbrook Head Football Coach: “It was good to register our first playoff win in 12 years in the history of our program since 2003 which was good for the kids coming in with a win vs. Hilltop and have 7 wins this year as we have a chance in the Division III playoffs after we lost last year after registering a bye in the second round to Granite Hills 38-7 so far we look forward to playing 2nd ranked Mission Bay” “We’ve won 5 of the last 6 games along with playing a difficult non conference schedule in the first five games and 3 of them are ranked in the top ten that are on our schedule which has helped us improve a lot as we learned from our mistakes.” “Parker Martin is a heck of a back we knew that we could run the Buck Sweep against Hilltop we ran in a lot tonight and I give credit to the offensive line as they blocked well and left open holes to have big runs .” “My QB Jack Grantham doesn’t throw a lot but on the 2 touchdown passes he made the right calls which is working out for us.” “Mission Bay is very athletic ball club they were 8-0 and have lost 2 games in a row.”



    The Lancers scored their only touchdown in the 3rd quarter as Angel Pineda 18 carries for 46 yards scored on a touchdown run of 4 yards.



    With the win the Warriors take a 7-4 record to next Friday’s win at Mission Bay High School game time is 7:00 pm.

    Hawkeyes Top Cowboy inside Kinnick Stadium

    Fourth-ranked Iowa wins 18-16 over top-ranked OSU in Grapple on the Gridiron


    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The fourth-ranked University of Iowa wrestling team defeated top-ranked Oklahoma State, 18-16, on Saturday in front of 42,287 fans, the largest dual crowd in NCAA history.


    The Hawkeyes and Cowboys split 10 matches, 5-5, but Iowa scored bonus points at 125 and, after dropping three straight, regained the lead for good with a crowd-pleasing technical fall at 184.


    “The hype for the fans is what’s important for me,” said UI head coach Tom Brands “That’s what it’s about, our fans, I’m selfish that way. I know it is great for wrestling, and people in Russia and Iran are going to see this, as well. This is the city that Dan Gable lives in, that’s a big part of it as well, they will know about it internationally.”


    Iowa leaned on its four All-Americans to push through Saturday. Cory Clark (133), Brandon Sorensen (149), and Nathan Burak earned decisions, and Thomas Gilman (125) opened the scoring with a 9-1 major decision over Oklahoma State All-American Eddie Klimara.


    But it was Sammy Brooks at 184 that turned the dual in Iowa’s favor for good. Brooks needed just 4:09 to build a 17-2 lead and put the Hawkeyes in front, 15-13.


    “You should be looking for bonus points every time you go out there and sometimes last year I was a little too reserved,” Brooks said. “I just want to open it back up and keep that going against whoever steps on the matt.”


    Brooks snapped a three-match stretch of Hawkeye losses that turned a 10-3 lead into a 13-10 deficit.


    “A five-point win team wise, that’s big,” Brands said. “The way that he was wrestling, hitting those holds, that’s what we want. He can do that against anybody, his consistency is that good. I’ve said that for a long time.”


    Burak extended Iowa’s lead to 18-13 at 197, setting up a pin-or-go-home situation for Oklahoma State at 285. The Cowboy’s Austin Marsden, a 2014 All-American, twice got to the legs of Hawkeye rookie Sam Stoll, but the fall never happened and Iowa now has its first three-dual win streak against Oklahoma State since 1995-96.


    The Hawkeyes built a 7-0 lead in team score at 125 and 133. Gilman scored one takedown in each period, and Clark built a 6-0 lead on his way to an 8-2 win at 133.


    “I started us off right,” Gilman said. “The pace was high. Maybe not where it needed to be, but I was able to get that major decision and help set the tone for the rest of the dual.”


    “I think (Clark) could have had a little more urgency to get the major decision on his feet,” Brands said. “He is wrestling his match and we aren’t going to question him.”


    Oklahoma State’s top-ranked Dean Heil (141) and Alex Dieringer (165) earned wins, and the Cowboys won at 157 and 174 in a pair of seven-minute slugfests. Fifteenth-ranked Chance Marsteller topped Edwin Cooper, 14-11, at 157, and fourth-ranked Kyle Crutchmer scored a takedown with 34 seconds left to top sixth-ranked Alex Meyer at 174.


    “That W is important,” said Brands. “We didn’t wrestle well. You look at eight back-points given up in Cooper’s match, and in Meyer’s match giving up four, coming so close and just not really realizing how your opponent is feeling and how to capitalize on it and be ready. We did a good job of not letting things unravel completely.”


    NOTES: Attendance was 42,287, the largest dual crowd in NCAA history… Iowa has won three straight duals against the Cowboys, it’s longest such streak since winning four straight from 1995-96… Logan Ryan made his Iowa dual debut… Sam Stoll made his Iowa debut.

    American Opens Season with 27-11 Win at Campbell

    Eagles win seven of 10 bouts against the Camels


    BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Winning seven of 10 bouts, the American University wrestling team started its 2015-16 season with a 27-11 dual victory over Campbell on Saturday afternoon.

    “Today we stepped on the mat as a team for the first time in 2015-16,” said American head coach Teague Moore. “It was a mixed bag of good, bad and ugly, but most notable was the effort given by everyone.

    “We fought in all 10 bouts and that led to a team victory.”

    The match began at 157 pounds, where 17th-ranked senior captain John Boyle got the Eagles out to a strong start with a first-period pin. The Camels responded with a sudden victory win at 165 pounds to get on the board, but the Eagles extended their lead in the team scoring with a 6-3 decision by Jason Grimes at 174 pounds.

    A major decision by Campbell at 184 pounds cut AU’s lead to 9-7, but sophomore Jeric Kasunic was dominant in his bout at 197 pounds for the Eagles, scoring a 13-0 major decision.

    Another major decision for the Camels in the heavyweight bout again cut American’s advantage to two points, but the Eagles closed out the dual with four straight wins to pull away.

    Senior captain David Terao, ranked eighth in the nation at 125 pounds, scored a 14-3 major decision in his first match of the season. Meanwhile, redshirt junior Esteban Gomez-Rivera earned the biggest upset of the dual for American, knocking off 17th-ranked Nathan Kraisser, 5-1, at 133 pounds.

    Redshirt senior Tyler Scotton, in his first season wrestling for the Eagles, added an 11-5 decision at 141 pounds. Senior Michael Dahlstrom, a former Campbell wrestler, closed out the dual with a 13-3 major decision to give American the 27-11 victory.

    “I’m very happy for Esteban,” said Moore. “This was a top-20 win he deserved and has worked very hard for.

    “John and David showed why they are captains, with dominant performances and senior poise.”

    The Eagles are back in action next Sunday, Nov. 22, when they head back to North Carolina for the Wolfpack Open, hosted by NC State.

    FIGHTING ILLINI WRESTLING


    @IlliniWrestling Sweeps No.25 ASU and SIUE

    Brunson Adds Team-High Third and Fourth Pins


    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. –Coming off an opening weekend sweep at the Eastern Michigan Duals, the ninth-ranked Illini dispatched the No. 25 Arizona State Sun Devils 27-9 and SIUE 41-3. The Illini were led by pins from Zac Brunson (2), Isaiah Martinez, and Brooks Black.


    “I thought there were some really good things. [Steven] Rodrigues looked really good, especially in that last match. Brooks Black showed a little bit of fire, which is good. Overall, I thought everything was pretty positive for the most part.”


    The 25th ranked Sun Devils jumped on top of the Illini early with an 8-6 decision by Ares Caripo over true-freshman Francis Edelen. The No. 6 wrestler at 133 pounds, Zane Richards, responded for the Illini with a 22-6 tech fall in third period to take a 5-3 lead. After a Brock Ervin decision pushed the lead to 8-3, Arizona State fought back with a hard-fought 7-5 sudden victory decision.


    In a bout that could have turned the tides in favor of the Sun Devils, No. 1 Isaiah Martinez fought tooth and nail with Oliver Pierce at 157 pounds. The two fought to a stalemate after the first period, but Isaiah Martinez nabbed an escape in period two before tacking on a riding time point to claim a 2-0 victory, and give the Orange and Blue an 11-6 lead.


    Upperclassmen Steven Rodrigues and Zac Brunson put away the grapplers from Tempe in the next two bouts with a major decision and a pin, respectively.


    “Brunson has been good on top for the last couple of years,” said Heffernan. “I think he’s really focused on becoming a pinner, so he’s working on being better on top, and he’s good on his feet already.”


    After No. 4 Blake Stauffer grabbed three points for Arizona State, Andre Lee and Brooks Black combined for 6 points to finish off the dual, giving the Illini a 27-9 victory.


    “I think everybody battled hard,” said Black. “I think we’re making the right steps in the right direction to get ready for Big Tens.”


    In the second dual for the Illini, the Orange and Blue again fell behind early 3-0, but were quick to respond with major decisions from Zane Richards and Brock Ervin. At 149 pounds, Kyle Langenderfer earned his first win on the day with a 3-2 decision over former Illini John Fahy.


    The Fighting Illini put the pressure on SIUE the rest of the way with falls by Martinez (2:52), Brunson (2:44), and Black (0:24), and a tech fall from Rodrigues (4:32). The rout ended with a 41-3 victory for Coach Heffernan’s Squad.


    For Brunson, his two pins today gives him four falls in five bouts this season, and tops on the team.


    “Brunson has been good on top for the last couple of years,” said Coach Heffernan. “I think he’s really focused on becoming a pinner, so he’s working on being better on top, making it more of a priority. He’s good on his feet already, so it’s another way for him to score and another way for him to attack people.”

    TROY, N.Y.
    - The NC State wrestling team started its 2015-16 campaign off in dominating fashion, going 3-0 at the Northeast Duals on Sunday. The 12th-ranked Wolfpack defeated Army (32-6), Sacred Heart (32-13), and finished with a dominating 31-3 win over #16 Minnesota.

    “Today was a great day for our program,” said head coach Pat Popolizio. “Getting three wins to start the season really sets a positive tone. We need to continue to build off of this momentume. I was extremely pleased with our aggresive style of wrestling.

    “Our young guys, like Sean Fausz and Jamal Morris, had really good individual performances today and got the team rolling. Pete (Renda) looked very comfortable at his new weight class and had a dominate performance in his final match today.”

    Top Match: 125 - Sean Fausz (NCSU) dec. #19 Skyler Petry; 8-6
    Like he did in the first two duals of the day, redshirt-freshman Sean Fausz picked up a win and gave the Pack the lead after the opening match. He scored an 8-6 upset of 19th-ranked Skyler Petry. With Fausz pp 4-3 to start the third, Petry scored a reverse and took his first lead at 5-4. A Fausz escape tied it up, then he scored another takedown, and after a Petry escape, Fausz had the extra point for riding time and a 8-6 win.

    Honorable Mention: 184 - #18 Pete Renda (NCSU) fall Chris Pfarr; 5:29
    With the Pack winning each of its first seven, the lead was big at 22-0. But it was Renda’s pin that clinched the dual win, as he put the Pack up 28-0 with only two bouts left. Wrestling at a new weight this year, he was a two-time NCAA Qualifier at 174 pounds, Renda was 3-0 today with a major decision, tech fall and pin.

    Up Next: The Wolfpack will be in home action next weekend. On Saturday, the Wolfpack will host four dual matches in the Wolfpack Duals at Cary Academy High School and on Sunday host the Wolfpack Open in Carmichael Gymnasium.

    Peters Announces Signing Class of 2016

    Jacob Wentzel, Austin Bell and Christian Dietrich sign letters of intent.


    PITTSBURGH – University of Pittsburgh head wrestling coach Jason Peters has announced a loaded class of early signees to his 2016 class. The bunch is comprised of two WPIAL blue bloods and one of New York’s finest prep athletes.


    The signing classes includes Jacob Wentzel (South Park, Pa./152), Austin Bell (Belle Vernon, Pa./170) and Christian Dietrich (Greene, N.Y./182).


    Former Pitt wrestling brothers Donnie and P.J. Tasser, also graduates of Belle Vernon, played a major role in the major success of now-committed Austin Bell who garnered All-American accolades as freshman in high school and became BVA’s second WPIAL champion in school history as a sophomore. That same year Bell had a runner-up finish (160 lbs.) at the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) Sophomore Nationals in Virginia Beach. Through his three years as a Leopard, Bell has compiled an overall record of 118-21, including a third place finish at states. In the most recent high school polls, Bell was ranked fifth by FloWrestling and eighth by InterMat.


    The future Panther who resides closest to Pitt’s Oakland campus is Jacob Wentzel, a product of South Park High School, at the southern tip of Allegheny County. Wentzel is rated No. 4 by InterMat and No. 7 by FloWrestling in the 152 weight class. Wentzel is the reigning PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association) champion at 152 pounds, and, as a senior, Wentzel looks to build upon the 80-3 record he’s compiled over the past two seasons.


    New York native Christian Dietrich got an early start to his high school career as he earned his first spot on the podium as a seventh grader wrestling at 152 pounds. Dietrich then took a year off being going all the way to the state finals where he finished second at 170 pounds. As a sophomore, he went undefeated en route to another state championship at 182 pounds. Dietrich would then start attending Wyoming Seminary in Kingston, Pa., to continue to grow as a wrestler and student in the classroom. In the latest FloWrestling rankings, Dietrich comes in at eighth and was tabbed 11th by InterMat.


    The Panthers will compete at the Fitzgerald Field House seven times throughout the 2015-16 campaign and will host some of the top teams in the country. Fans can purchase season and single match tickets online or by calling 800-643-PITT(7488).


    For all things Pitt wrestling, follow the team on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


    NIU Wrestling: Steve Bleise Named MAC Wrestler of the Week

    Bleise won the Michigan State Open by defeating two top-15 wrestlers. Head shot attached.


    CLEVELAND –Steve Bleise of the Northern Illinois University wrestling team was named the Mid-American Conference Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday.

    Bleise (Chelsea, Mich./Chelsea) became the first Huskie wrestler since Derek Elmore in November 2012 to garner the award, which recognizes the most impressive wrestling achievement by a MAC student-athlete during the previous week.

    And even though six MAC wrestlers won titles at the Michigan State Open, NIU’s redshirt freshman 141-pounder was selected for the conference’s weekly award after he posted victories over two top-15 wrestlers on his way to claiming the championship.

    To remain undefeated this season and clinch the Michigan State Open title, Bleise won his first three matches handily before defeating No. 13 Danny Sabatello of Purdue 11-6 in the semifinals and knocking off defending MAC Champion and No. 14-ranked Zach Horan of Central Michigan by a 5-3 decision in the final.

    Bleise is now 9-0 this season for the Huskies, and the redshirt freshman was ranked as high as No. 10 this week in the national rankings for his weight class by Flowrestling as well as being a consensus top-20 wrestler at 141 pounds.

    The NIU wrestling team returns to the mats this Saturday at the Lindenwood Open in St. Charles, Mo., where the Huskies will wrestle all day against a quality field of opponents as they look to build on their early season success.

    Davis announces signing of 2016 recruiting class

    Covaciu and Wick twins set to join Badgers


    On the Web: http://go.wisc.edu/533iy2


    MADISON, Wis. — The early signing period proved to be successful for the Wisconsin wrestling team, as the program signed Indiana standout Jacob Covaciu and the highly ranked Wick twins, Evan and Zander.

    “All three guys fit what we’re looking for,” Wisconsin head coach Barry Davis said. “I think they're each a great addition to our program. The last three years have been good for us. The program is definitely moving forward in the right direction with the right people.”


    Jacob Covaciu

    Jacob Covaciu, a Merrillville, Indiana, native brings a list of accomplishments with him to Madison next fall. In 2014, he was named a Folkstyle All-American and finished as the Indiana state runner-up at 138 pounds. He continued his success in 2015, finishing as the Indiana state champion at 145 pounds and was awarded 2015 Fargo Jr. Freestyle All-America honors.

    The senior is currently ranked as the No. 1 wrestler in the state of Indiana and stands at No. 18 on the Intermat national rankings. He is projected to compete in either the 157- or 165-pound weight class for Wisconsin and plans to major in kinesiology/pre-med.


    Davis on Covaciu: “Jacob Covaciu from Indiana won a state title last year. I think he’s got great upside to him. He comes from a great work ethic as well. He’s got goals on the mat as well as off the mat. He wants to go to medical school. The leadership’s there, the work ethic’s there, the dedication’s there.”


    Evan Wick

    Evan Wick signed to officially join the Badgers’ 2016 signing class with his twin brother Zander.

    Evan Wick is a standout competitor who will add to the Badgers list of accolades. The San Gabriel, California, native was a two-time California state place winner, a 2015 Western Regionals champion and a 2015 Jr. Freestyle runner-up.

    Currently, Evan is ranked third in the nation at 152 pounds by FLOWrestling. He is expected to compete in the 165-pound weight class for the Badgers and plans on majoring in business.


    Zander Wick

    Zander Wick boasts an impressive resume as well. The San Gabriel, California, native was named the 2013 Folkstyle National Champion. In 2015, he finished as the California state runner-up, grabbed a Jr. Freestyle All-America honor and claimed the 2015 Freakshow Champion title.

    Currently, Zander is ranked third in the nation at 145 pounds by FLOWrestling. He is expected to compete in the 149- or 157-pound weight class for Wisconsin and plans on majoring in business.


    Davis on Wick twins: “We got a great brother combination and that’s a great thing. They have different styles. Evan is taller than Zander—he’s somewhat compact—but they bring a very intense style and a very offensive style of wrestling. I think they’ll make guys around them better. They bring the full package with character, leadership, good students, as well as what they bring to the mat. They each have a great work ethic too, so it’ll be great to have them.”

    Keystone Classic Preview: 149/157/165/174 Pounds
    Courtesy University of Pennsylvania
    Wed, November 18, 2015
    PHILADELPHIA – The 2015 Keystone Classic is this Sunday in The Palestra, with 13 teams competing in a premier early-season wrestling tournament.

    In addition to the host University of Pennsylvania program, No. 21 (Tournament Rankings) Northwestern, Indiana, Pittsburgh, Drexel, Rider, Bloomsburg, Harvard, Franklin & Marshall, Eastern Michigan, Appalachian State, VMI, and Sacred Heart will compete in the tournament.

    Last year, four teams competing at this season’s Keystone Classic finished in the Top-30 at NCAAs – Northwestern (No. 15), Pitt (No. 21), Indiana (No. 24), and Rider (No. 27).

    Leading up the tournament, PennAthletics.com will preview each weight class and highlight key entrants expected to compete for the title. Today, we look at 149, 157, 165, and 174 pounds.

    149: The premier weight in the tournament, there are three Top-10 wrestlers likely to be entered this weekend. Leading the pack is No. 1 Jason Tsirtsis of Northwestern. The 2014 NCAA champion, Tsirtsis was third last year at NCAAs. Along the way, he twice defeated No. 10 B.J. Clagon (Rider) by 2-1 decision – the second meeting in the consolation semifinals after Clagon had secured his own All-American honors. The home team will have a say in the matter with No. 8 C.J. Cobb. The champion at the Bearcat Open to begin the season, Cobb was a Round of 12 finisher last year at NCAAs – falling to Clagon in a 5-3 decision. Drexel is assuredly in the mix as well, with No. 16 Matt Cimato – also a NCAA qualifier last season – rounding out a stellar top four. If you’re looking for someone to come from off the pace, VMI’s Stevan Smith has a third-place finish at the Hokie Open to his credit early in the season.

    157: While there are no returning All-Americans at this weight, Penn’s Brooks Martino and Rider’s Chad Walsh are two returning NCAA qualifiers who are in contention for the title this weekend. Martino placed sixth at EIWAs last season, while Walsh was EWL champion. Northwestern’s Bryce Brill could be a factor as well. He was 4-0 last season before suffering a season-ending injury. He hasn’t competed yet this season, but if he is good to go on Sunday Brill can surely make a run. VMI again has a wrestler coming off a good result at the Hokie Open in Neal Richards who finished second.

    165: What was a deep weight at last year’s Keystone Classic is a bit more wide open this time around with the graduation of stalwarts at Indiana and Northwestern. However, as one would expect, those two Big Ten programs have reloaded. Northwestern is expected to enter No. 15 Johnny Sebastien. The Ramsey, N.J. (Bergen Catholic) product went 23-3 last year as a redshirt at 174 pounds. He hasn’t competed yet this season, but if entered gives the Wildcats a shot at the title. Indiana’s Devin Skatzka has finished second at the EMU Open and fifth at the MSU Open to begin his collegiate career. Rider is also a factor with two-time NCAA qualifier No. 14 Connor Brennan. He his 3-0 to start the season. Penn’s will enter Ray Bethea, who was sixth last year at EIWAs and has won his only two matches of 2015-16. VMI’s Shabaka Johns was third at the Hokie Open and took second at the SoCon Championships last season. Appalachian State’s Forrest Pryzbysz was third at the MSU Open this past week, making a second SoCon factor.

    174: Indiana’s Nate Jackson enters the week ranked No. 12 by InterMat and is the likely No. 1 seed at the tournament. He went 3-2 last year at NCAAs and is the defending Keystone Classic champion. Appalachian State’s Nick Kees is ranked No. 15 this week, and is coming off a fifth place finish at the MSU Open. The home team will bring Casey Kent to the field. After a year off with injury, Kent is looking to build on a NCAA Championships berth at 165 pounds in 2013-14. He was 3-1 at the Bearcat Open, reaching the semifinals. Other wrestlers to keep an eye on are Pittsburgh’s Te’Shan Campbell – a PIAA state champion last year at 170 pounds, and Sacred Heart’s Conan Shuster who took sixth last year at EIWAs.

    Wrestling begins at 9 a.m. on Sunday in The Palestra. Tickets are on sale now, and are $10 in advance of the tournament and $15 at the door. Live streaming of the tournament will begin at 5 p.m. on Sunday on the Ivy League Digital Network and continue through the championship finals which are expected to begin at 6 p.m.

    @MizzouWrestling Selected to Win the Mid-American Conference

    Seven #TigerStyle wrestlers ranked in preseason weight class rankings


    COLUMBIA, Mo. – Last season, Mizzou Wrestling captured its third consecutive Mid-American Conference title, one for each season Mizzou has been a member of the conference. On Wednesday, the conference office announced its preseason rankings with Mizzouagain sitting atop the poll with 20.0 points. #TigerStyle wrestlers were represented in seven of the 10 individual weight class rankings, with junior 133-pounder Zach Synon (Cary, Ill.) and junior 197-pounder J’den Cox (Columbia, Mo.) leading the way at the top of their respective weight classes.


    The league’s head coaches voted on the team and individual rankings (full rankings below). Schools and wrestlers were ranked based on the number of first through fourth-place votes. A first-place vote was worth four points, second-place vote earned three points, third-place votes earned two points, and fourth-place votes earned one point.


    Both Synon and Cox will enter the 2015-16 season as defending champions, winning last season’s MAC Tournament Championship. Cox also placed fifth at the NCAA Championships. In total, Mizzou will have four returning All-Americans this season. In addition to Synon and Cox, redshirt junior 149-pounder Lavion Mayes (Mascoutah, Ill.) and redshirt sophomore 184-pounder Willie Miklus (Altoona, Iowa) captured MAC Championships and advanced to the NCAA Championships a season ago. Mayes and Miklus each finished seventh at NCAAs. Both Mayes and Miklus were ranked second in the preseason rankings in their respective weight classes.


    Three other Tigers were ranked in the preseason individual rankings. Redshirt sophomore 125-pounder Barlow McGhee (Rock Island, Ill.) was selected to finish fourth by the conference. McGhee wrestled in five tournaments a season ago while taking his redshirt season, earning a record of 14-5 and a championship at the Roger Denker Open. Redshirt freshman 165-pounder Daniel Lewis (Blue Springs, Mo.) was selected third in the preseason rankings. Lewis had a very impressive redshirt campaign in 2014-15, posting a record of 21-8 with an astonishing 15 wins by way of pin. Virginia transfer redshirt senior 174-pounder Blaise Butler (Belvidere, Ill.) was the second-ranked wrestler in preseason rankings. Last season, Butler posted a 21-6 record and 13-2 dual record as a Cavalier.


    Mizzou will begin the regular season on Friday (Nov. 20) with a dual on the road against SIU-Edwardsville. Match starts at 7 P.M. CT. Mizzou begins its MAC title defense on Saturday, Nov. 28 at Northern Iowa.
