    BLACKSBURG ? The Virginia Tech wrestling team put up a tremendous fight against the seventh-ranked Chippewas of Central Michigan, but a late lead was erased as CMU came back to beat the Hokies 21-17 Friday night in front of 961 fans at Cassell Coliseum. Tech got a pair of impressive upsets, but the Chippewas used bonus points in the last two matches to pull off the win.

    Things got rolling at 125 pounds with a pair of nationally ranked wrestlers in No. 9 Matt Steintrager of CMU and Tech?s 14th-ranked Jarrod Garnett. Steintrager dominated from the beginning, picking up a takedown in each of the first two periods en route to a 7-4 decision. Garnett?s lone offensive score was a reversal picked up midway through the third period. Steintrager was docked for a pair of stall warnings, but it wasn?t enough for Garnett as the Chippewas jumped out to a 3-0 lead.

    Central Michigan picked up bonus points at 133 pounds when ninth-ranked Scotti Sentes earned a major decision with a 13-0 victory over Brock LiVorio. At 141 pounds, 10th-ranked Chris Diaz of Tech used an early takedown and back points and then held off a late charge from Conor Beebe to win 7-4.

    At 149 pounds, Tech?s Brian Stephens picked up a huge win over 11th-ranked Tony D?Alie of CMU. Trailing 3-0 in the second period, Stephens used a pair of takedowns to tie up the match and then in the third period used a takedown and three near fall points to cap a 9-0 run. A late takedown by Stephens completed the 12-7 upset for the true freshman from Piqua, Ohio.

    At 157 pounds, fourth-ranked Jesse Dong was methodical in picking up a 10-0 major decision over Donnie Corby to give the Hokies a 10-7 team lead. Central Michigan sent 17th-ranked Tyler Grayson to the mat at 165 pounds, but it was unranked Matt Epperly who came away with the big win. Epperly got a takedown late in the first period and one more in the second stanza and did enough in the third to pick up the 6-3 decision.

    Taylor Knapp bumped up two weight classes to 174 pounds for the Hokies, but 10th-ranked Ben Bennett was too much in picking up a 10-0 major decision to make it 13-11 in favor of Tech. Tommy Spellman, ranked 19th in the country, cruised past Dillon Kern at 184 pounds with a 13-2 major decision. That gave the Hokies a 17-11 lead with two matches left. Eric Simaz downed Chris Penny with an 8-0 major decision at 197 pounds and then third-ranked Jarod Trice picked up a forfeit win at the heavyweight class to complete the Chippewa comeback.

    In the high school match proceeding Tech?s match, No. 1 Christiansburg High downed No. 2 Grundy High, 37-27, in a battle of the top two Virginia Group AA teams.

    With Sunday?s match against Duke postponed until Feb. 12, the 15th-ranked Hokies (14-4) will not return to action until next weekend. On Friday, Tech will take on No. 8 Lehigh in Pennsylvania and will then face No. 11 Maryland on Saturday in College Park in ACC action.

    NC State does not have any matches this weekend. Weather forced a postponement of Duke vs Virginia Tech to Feb 12. Carolina was going to compete in the Appalachian State Open but it was cancelled too.

    The No. 19 Virginia wrestling team lost 25-12 to Rutgers Friday night in front of a large, raucous crowd at the Louis Brown Athletic Center in Piscataway, N.J.

    Virginia (13-5) won at three weight classes. Derek Valenti (So., Newton, N.J.) earned the Cavaliers’ biggest win of the day, picking up a pin against Trevor Melde at 141 pounds. Chris Henrich (Jr., Lansdale, Pa.), ranked third nationally by InterMat, and No. 20 Mike Salopek (R-Fr., North Huntingdon, Pa.) also won by decision for the Cavaliers at 174 and 184 pounds, respectively. It marked the fewest wins by UVa in a dual this season.

    In winning their 11th-consecutive match, the Scarlet Knights (15-4-1) got off to a good start with consecutive victories by decision, as Joseph Langel won 8-4 over UVa’s Ross Gitomer (Sr., Flemington, N.J.) at 125 pounds and Billy Ashnault, ranked as high as No. 16 nationally, notched a 6-4 triumph over the Cavaliers’ Matt Snyder (R-Fr., Lewistown, Pa.) at 133 pounds.

    Valenti tied the score at six with his team-leading seventh fall of the season, pinning Melde in the 141-pound class at the 6:39 mark. Melde is ranked as high as No. 22 nationally. Valenti upped his record to 19-6 this season.

    Rutgers responded with consecutive wins at 149 and 157 pounds that each resulted in bonus points. At 149, David Greenwald scored a 10-1 major decision over UVa’s Dave Ebbott (Blue Bell, Pa.), and Daryl Cocozzo followed with an upset of No. 14 Danny Gonsor, pinning him at the 4:39 mark and igniting the large crowd. The six points from the fall pushed the Rutgers lead to 16-6.

    Rutgers tacked on three more points when Gregory Zannetti posted a 2-0 decision over the Cavaliers’ Pat Riley (R-Jr., Bernardsville, N.J.), as he successfully avoided a takedown attempt by Riley late in the final period.

    UVa won consecutive decisions at 174 pounds and 184 pounds. Henrich scored a quick takedown in the first period and cruised to a 7-1 decision over Daniel Rinaldi. Henrich improved to 24-2 this year with his ninth straight win. It also marked the 90th win of his career as he moved into a ninth-place tie with Buddy Blaha (1984-87) on the all-time UVa wins ledger.

    No. 20 Mike Salopek (R-Fr., North Huntingdon, Pa.) scored a takedown with just under a minute remaining in the third period, then added another takedown to earn a 6-3 win over Daniel Seidenberg.

    The most exciting bout of the day came at 197 pounds, where No. 19 Brent Jones (Sr., Burke, Va.) and Lamar Brown battled in a quadruple-overtime thriller before Brown scored a series of points in a frenetic period and came out with a 14-8 victory. Brown is ranked as high as No. 18 nationally.

    Tenth-ranked DJ Russo finished off the Rutgers team win with a 7-3 decision at heavyweight over UVa’s Jack Danilkowicz (R-Jr., Green Oaks, Ill.).

    Virginia continues its weekend road swing at 1 p.m. Saturday when it wrestles at Princeton.

    Valenti was as shocked as anyone when the ref called that fall-he was getting his butt kicked until a roll through

    Melde was up 6-4 at the time, admittedly not exactly a butt kicking on the scoreboard. We'll give Valenti a bunny for that one since he's a NJ boy.

    Nice win for RU, 25-12, despite Melde yielding his 6. Could have been a tad uglier for the Cavs. FWIW Melde was always 2 or more weight classes above Valenti in HS so they had never met on the mat.

    Next up, Navy tonight and another test of progress before taking on Lehigh next weekend over in Bethlehem.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Wrestling Cruises To Win Over George Mason
    Terps win nine of 10 matches en route to 35-6 victory

    Jan. 29, 2010

    FAIRFAX, Va. - The 10th-ranked University of Maryland wrestling team earned its 16th win of the season Friday night, dominating George Mason by winning nine of 10 matches en route to a 35-6 victory.

    Maryland won the first six matches of the meet to take a 21-0 lead before George Mason was able to get on the board, as the Terps cruised to their seventh win in the last eight tries. At 16-4 on the season, Maryland is one victory shy of tying the school record for wins in a season. The Terps went 17-6 in 1990 and 17-5 in 2007.

    "I feel good about how the guys wrestled and the results we got," said head coach Kerry McCoy. "They didn't make it easy for us, but what I'm really happy about is our guys scored a lot of points and really fought hard. We want guys to push the pace and score a lot of points and that's what they did."

    Pat Strizki got Maryland out to a good start, taking an 8-4 decision over Brian Wright at 125 pounds. The Terps then got major decisions in the next two matches. No. 11 Steven Bell got a 12-4 major decision over Denny Herndon and Matt Bogusz took a 12-3 major over Jaaziah Bethea at 141 pounds, as Maryland took an 11-0 lead.

    George Mason looked like they would win the match at 149 pounds as Brandon Bucher took a 7-0 lead over Jon Kohler with just over a minute left in the first period. But Kohler fought all the way back and won the match 11-9.

    "We're never out of a match," said McCoy. "Jon could have rolled over, but he kept fighting and got the win, and that was a real spark for us. That's exactly the type of effort I'm looking for."

    Kyle John kept the Terps rolling with an 11-5 decision over Aaron Keeton at 157 pounds, and No. 15 Josh Asper increased Maryland's lead to 21-0 with a 15-4 major decision at 165 pounds.

    Owen Smith fell to Mendbagana Tovuujav at 174 pounds, but the Terps won the final three matches in a contest that was never in doubt. Corey Peltier took a 10-3 decision at 184 pounds, No. 3 Hudson Taylor won by forfeit and Patrick Gilmore capped off the evening with a 15-0 technical fall in the heavyweight match.

    Maryland returns home on Saturday, Feb. 6, to take on No. 19 Virginia Tech at 7 p.m., the first of three straight home matches. The Terps also host American on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. before finishing their home schedule against Hofstra on Feb. 14 at 1 p.m.
