    No. 4 Penn State in Second Place after Day One of 2010 Southern Scuffle
    Lions use 10 pins to stay in team race, including three from Andrew Alton

    GREENSBORO, N.C.; December 29, 2010 – The Penn State Nittany Lion wrestling team, under the guidance of head coach Cael Sanderson, is in second place after the first day of the 2010 Southern Scuffle in Greensboro, N.C. Penn State is just behind pre-tournament favorite Cornell heading into the second day of the event, hosted by North Carolina-Greensboro, which concludes tomorrow.

    Penn State sent 15 wrestlers into action at the Scuffle with two at 125, one at 133, two at 141, two at 149, two at 157, two at 165, and one each at 174, 184, 197 and heavyweight. The Nittany Lions had an outstanding day with all but three wrestlers staying alive through nearly 12 hours of wrestling.

    Senior Brad Pataky (Clearfield, Pa.) and No. 16 Frank Martellotti (Pittsburgh, Pa.) both wrestled at 125 for the Nittany Lions, with Pataky making his season debut. Pataky shook the rust off early picking up two impressive wins before dropping a last second 5-4 decision to No. 13 Frank Perrelli of Cornell in the third round. He bounced back in fine fashion, however, with 7-1 win in his first consolation bout and he moves into the consolation’s fifth round with a 3-1 mark. Martellotti got a first round bye then dropped a touch decision into Penn’s Mark Rappo in the second round. The loss to Rappo was Martellotti’s first of the year and the true freshman bounced back to win three straight with two majors to stay alive and move into tomorrow’s fifth round of wrestle-backs. He went 3-1 on the day.

    Sophomore Bryan Pearsall (Lititz, Pa.) was Penn State’s lone entrant at 133. Pearsall was solid, winning his first two bouts before dropping a hard-fought 5-2 decision to Edinboro’s Eric Morrill in the third round. He closed out the first day with a pin of Navy’s Allen Stein to go 3-1 on the day and move into tomorrow’s fifth round of consolations. New Nittany Lion Andrew Long (Creston, Iowa) was not able to wrestle at the event due to NWCA weight certification guidelines. He will make his Nittany Lion debut at the Virginia Duals.

    True freshman Andrew Alton (Mill Hall, Pa.), undefeated at 13-0 and ranked No. 9, and senior Adam Lynch (Mifflinburg, Pa.) both wrestled at 141 for Penn State. Both Lions were superb and combined to go 6-0 with each advancing to the quarterfinals. Alton was stunning, going 3-0 with three pins. His pins came at 6:24, 0:22 and 1:23 giving him a 16-0 record as a true freshman with 13 pins. His 13 pins have him tied for sixth on Penn State’s all-time pins-in-a-season list. Lynch was equally impressive, rolling to three wins, including a first round pin of No. 14 Germaine Lindsey of Ohio.

    Two-time All-American Frank Molinaro (Barnegat, N.J.), ranked No. 6 nationally, and teammate James English (York, Pa.) both wrestled at 149. Like 141, both of Penn State’s entries at 149 were perfect on the day, combining for a 6-0 record with each advancing to the quarterfinals. Molinaro notched a major and a technical fall on his way to a 3-0 day and a date in tomorrow’s quarterfinals. English matched Molinaro’s record, picking up a pin and a major on his way to a 3-0 mark and a quarterfinal appearance.

    Freshman David Taylor (St. Paris, Ohio), undefeated at 13-0 and ranked No. 3 nationally, and teammate James Vollrath (Richboro, Pa.) wrestled at 157. Taylor was dominating, picking up two technical falls and a pin on his way to a 3-0 mark. Taylor is 16-0 on the year with four pins, five tech falls and six majors heading into his quarterfinal date tomorrow morning. Vollrath dropped a tough first round decision and then roared back with four straight wins, including two majors, to stay alive and move into tomorrow’s fifth round of wrestle-backs.

    Freshman Jake Kemerer (Greensburg, Pa.) returned to action for Penn State after an illness earlier in December and sophomore Nick Fischer (Unionville, Pa.) both wrestled at 165. Kemerer was perfect on the day, going 3-0 with a major and two decisions to move into tomorrow’s quarterfinals. Fischer won his first bout, then dropped his second bout. He then won two consolation bouts before bowing out of the tournament with a tough 4-3 loss to Navy’s Mason Bailey. Fischer went 3-2 on the day for Penn State.

    Freshman Ed Ruth (Harrisburg, Pa.), ranked No. 10 nationally, was Penn State’s entrant at 174. Ruth got a first round by and then pinned Army’s Robert Doyle in the second round. He followed that up with an 11-3 dismantling (including 5:28 in riding time) of Michigan’s Justin Zeerip to go 2-0 on the day and move into the quarterfinals.

    With All-American Quentin Wright (Wingate, Pa.) still recovering from an injury, freshman Andrew Church (Erie, Pa.) got the call at 184 for the Nittany Lions. Church lost two tough decisions on day one and was eliminated in the consolations, going 0-2 on the day.

    Freshman Nick Ruggear (Oxford, Pa.) took to the mat for Penn State at 197. He had a first round bye and the lost his second round match-up to North Carolina’s Caylor Williams. Ruggear bounced back for a strong win in the third round of consolations before bowing out of the tournament in the next conso round. Ruggear went 1-2 on the day.

    Junior Cameron Wade (Twinsburg, Ohio), ranked No. 6 nationally, was Penn State’s entrant at heavyweight. Wade dominated his first three opponents, getting two pins and a decision to go 3-0 and move into tomorrow morning’s quarterfinals.

    Penn State is second in the team race with 50.5 points (using only one scorer per weight). Pre-tourney favorite Cornell is in first with 54.0 while Michigan is in third with 49.5. Oregon State follows with 48.5 with Kent State and Minnesota tied for fifth with 43.5 each. The Nittany Lions went 40-10 overall with 10 pins.

    No. 4 Penn State Co-Champs of 2010 Southern Scuffle with No. 1 Cornell
    Ruth wins Outstanding Wrestler Award with sizzling show at 174

    GREENSBORO, N.C.; December 30, 2010 – The Penn State Nittany Lion wrestling team continued its outstanding early season run, claiming the Co-Championships of the 2010 Southern Scuffle in Greensboro, N.C. Penn State, ranked No. 4, tied No. 1 Cornell for the team crown. The Nittany Lions sent four wrestlers to the finals in front of a rowdy crowd at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex and crowned three champions.

    Red-shirt freshmen David Taylor (St. Paris, Ohio) and Ed Ruth (Harrisburg, Pa.) won titles at 157 and 165 while junior Cameron Wade (Twinsburg, Ohio) forged the tie with a title winning decision in the tournament’s final bout at heavyweight. Ruth’s sizzling title-run at 174 earned him the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler Award. Two-time All-American Frank Molinaro (Barnegat, N.J.) almost made it four for four in the finals for Penn State with a one-point loss to the nation’s top-ranked wrestler in the nation at 149. The Nittany Lions sent 15 wrestlers into action at the two-day event and eight placed.

    True freshman Frank Martellotti (Pittsburgh, Pa.) bounced back from a loss in his first bout yesterday to reel off six straight wins before a loss in the consolation semifinals. Martellotti, ranked No. 16 nationally at 125, would end the event with a 6-3 record and a sixth place finish and is 18-3 on the year. Senior Brad Pataky (Clearfield, Pa.) had a solid return to the mat after missing the first semester with an injury. Pataky went 3-2 with a major and a tech fall. While not placing at 125, Pataky’s first action of the year should spur him on to more action at the Virginia Duals on Jan. 7-8.

    Sophomore Bryan Pearsall (Lititz, Pa.) went 4-2 at 133. The Lion went 1-1 today, picking up crucial bonus points with a pin in his first bout before losing in the sixth round of consolations. Pearsall had two pins during the tournament for the Nittany Lions and is now 13-6 overall.

    At 141, true freshman Andrew Alton (Mill Hall, Pa.) gave up a last-second takedown to No. 1 Kellen Russell of Michigan and dropped a 4-3 decision in a thrilling upset bid in the semifinals. The 9<sup style="line-height: 1.2em; outline-style: none;">th</sup>-ranked 141-pounder rebounded for two wins in wrestle-back to take third place. Alton went 6-1 on the day with three pins and a major. He is now 19-1 on the year. Senior Adam Lynch (Mifflinburg, Pa.) lost to No.11 Michael Mangrum of Oregon State in his quarterfinal match-up and then lost again in wrestle-backs to finish one win shy of placing. Lynch went 3-2 with a pin and a major at the tourney and is 7-3 overall.

    After a quarterfinal win, two-time All-American Frank Molinaro (Barnegat, N.J.), ranked No. 6 at 149, crushed No. 15 Torsten Gillespie 9-1 That win moved him into the finals where he met No. 1 Kyle Dake of Cornell. Molinaro set the offensive tempo, taking shot after shot in the finals but Dake was able to spend the match on the edge of the mat and used a third period escape to post the 1-0 win. Molinaro went 6-1 on the day with three majors and a technical fall. Molinaro improves to 14-2 on the year.

    Sophomore James English (York, Pa.) capped off an outstanding performance for the Nittany Lions by taking 7<sup style="line-height: 1.2em; outline-style: none;">th</sup> place. English posted a 1-1 mark on day two and went 5-2 at the tournament with a pin. He is now 13-4 overall.

    Red-shirt freshman David Taylor (St. Paris, Ohio), ranked No. 3 at 157, continued to dominate the field with a 23-6 technical fall over Michigan’s Brandon Zeerip in the semifinals. The win moved him into the finals where he took on No. 9 Paul Young of Indiana. In another dominating performance, Taylor made short work of the Hoosier senior, turning the veteran Big Ten grappler numerous times on his way to a decisive 18-2 technical fall at the 4:06 mark. Taylor was simply unchallenged at the event, going 6-0 with four technical falls and two pins. Taylor is still undefeated on the year with a 19-0 mark.

    Classmate James Vollrath (Richboro, Pa.) continued his hot run. After losing in the first round yesterday, Vollrath won nine straight matches to take third place. Included in his run was a 5-3 victory over No. 7 Bryce Saddoris of Navy. Vollrath now sports 21-4 record.

    Red-shirt freshman Jake Kemerer (Greensburg, Pa.) took No. 6 Paul Gillespie to the limit as the Hofstra grappler needing riding time to win 2-1 in the quarters at 165. Kemerer then lost his first wrestle-back and bowed out of the tournament with a 3-2 record, one win shy of placing. Kemerer is 11-5 on the year. Sophomore Nick Fischer (Unionville, Pa.) bowed out of the tournament after a 3-2 showing yesterday.

    Ranked No. 10 at 174, red-shirt freshman Ed Ruth (Harrisburg, Pa.) gave notice to the country with a thorough 11-5 win over No. 1 Mack Lewnes of Cornell in the semifinals. Ruth then took on No. 2 Chris Henrich of Virginia in the finals. In a feat rare for any wrestler, yet alone a freshman, Ruth dominated the second-ranked Cavalier on his way to a 7-2 win. In beating the No. 1 and No. 2 seed in the same afternoon, Ruth won the Scuffle crown with a 5-0 record (including two pins and a major). Ruth will head to the Virginia Duals with a 17-1 record.

    With All-American Quentin Wright (Wingate, Pa.) still recovering from an injury at 184, red-shirt freshman Andrew Church (Erie, Pa.) went 0-2 yesterday and was Penn State’s only competitor at that weight.

    Red-shirt freshman Nick Ruggear (Oxford, Pa.) went 1-2 at 197 yesterday and was eliminated as Penn State’s only wrestler at that weight as well.

    Junior heavyweight Cameron Wade (Twinsburg, Ohio), ranked No. 6 nationally, continued to roll and beat No. 12 Clayton Jack 7-4 in the semifinals, setting up a finals bout against No. 7 Ben Apland of Michigan. Wade needed a win to force a tie in the team race and he gave the packed house all they could handle. Down 2-1 with time running out, Wade turned Apland for two back points as the Lion faithful roared and, with a riding time point, notched a 4-2 thriller to take the title at heavyweight. The win allowed Penn State to forge a tie in the team race as well. Wade went 6-0 with three pins to win the title and now has a 16-2 overall record.

    The Nittany Lions and Big Red each had 151.5 points while Oregon State was a distant third with 132.5. Michigan claimed fourth with 132 while Minnesota wrestled to a fifth place finish with 126.5 points. Penn State went 65-22 on the day with 36 of those bouts earning bonus points. Penn State had 15 pins, six technical falls and 15 majors while placing eight wrestlers in the top eight.

    Cael Sanderson’s Nittany Lions return to action at the Virginia Duals on January 7-8 in the new year. The two-day dual meet tournament takes place in Hampton, Virginia. Penn State’s next home dual is a nationally televised match-up with No. 21 Pittsburgh on Jan. 21. Action in the Big Ten Network live event begins at 6 p.m. in Rec Hall.

    A tie? A stinking tie???

    Some did well but when Cael needed someone to really step it up for bonus points at the end, it just didn't happen. Shades of ISU with guys not quite there yet!

    They did look good and that bodes well for the future but somehow Cael and Co have to get a few more guys onboard with the idea of pushing for bonus points instead of being content.

    The big guy was a disappointment as fat boys usually are. Little hustle and a lot of laying around hoping he would pull it out. Go after it and get a pin, that is what all the fat is made for!

    What a BS statement. This "shades of ISU" and Cael can't win the big one can be stated over and over again. But when you look at the bonus points PSU wrestlers put on the board, and factor in Ed's Ruth's domination over #1 and #2 opponents, and the fact that Penn State tied THE #1 TEAM IN THE COUNTRY WITH FRIGG'N FRESHMEN, I think your expectations are rediculous. You talk about the Big Man not sucking it up and earning a bonus point as if it was that easy. If you've ever wrestled, you surely know the frustration of wanting to do something, and not being able to. But hey, Blame Cael. Right?

    I may be a PSU homer. But Cael has turned this lackluster program into a title contender in less than two seasons.
