While the concept of wrestling for the EIWA seeding has almost been brought to the point of overkill in the amount of times it has been stressed — but for good reason — it is tough to put a finger on Dan Seidenberg’s season. The fifth-year senior has had as many ups as he has had downs this season.
Senior 184-pounder Dan Seidenberg won his first match in a month against Drexel on Friday after only wrestling twice in that span.
The Rutgers wrestling team had one goal in mind at the start of the season: have as many grapplers reach the podium as possible at the NCAA Tournament. The Scarlet Knights arrived closer to that goal Friday night at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.
Redshirt freshman Sean McCabe pins Drexel at 125-pounds 2:38 into the Saturday’s dual, opening up a 6-0 score for the Knights. It was the second consecutive bonus-points win for McCabe following his major decision Feb. 15.
The Rutgers wrestling team had the chance to grapple on five different occasions at the Louis Brown Athletic Center during the 2012-2013 campaign.This season, the Scarlet Knights only have one opportunity to host a dual competition at the RAC. The opportunity also happens to be the last home dual meet of the season for Rutgers (10-5, 6-2), which will face Drexel (7-13, 1-4) tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
Junior 165-pounder Nick Visicaro wants to end his season strong entering EIWAs.
Fighting over the last slice of pizza, who gets to use the shower first or who has to sit in the middle seat of the family car might be what most siblings squabble about in a typical household. That is not the case at the Ashnault residence. Both former member of the Rutgers wrestling team, Billy Ashnault, and current freshman 141-pounder Anthony Ashnault, have been wrestling since they were 5 years old.
Redshirt 141-pounder Anthony Ashnault has been unable to wrestle unattached from Rutgers due to an injury. He last wrestled Nov. 10 in the Bearcat Open.
Three straight losses — all against ranked opponents — put the Rutgers wrestling team in a difficult position in its first home dual meet in more than a month. With 1,300 fans in attendance at the College Ave. Gym, including Athletic Director Julie Hermann and NFL alumni Devin and Jason McCourty, the Scarlet Knights expected to win handily Saturday against Lock Haven.
Sophomore Anthony Perrotti attempts to prevent an escape in his 8-1 decision.
Only two grapplers were able to earn points Saturday in the Rutgers wrestling team’s 27-9 loss to No. 23 Lehigh. Those Scarlet Knights were sophomores Billy Smith and Ken Theobold. While heavyweight Smith’s win comes after being a national qualifier last season, and is currently ranked NR/15/19, according to AWN/InterMat/W.I.N., it is perhaps more surprising that the 149-pounder Theobold was able to gain his first decision over a ranked opponent.
Head coach Scott Goodale said Rutgers will field its best dual-meet lineup Friday night against Iowa at the RAC. Junior Andrew Campollatano makes his debut for the Knights after sitting out a year due to transfer regulations.
The Rutgers wrestling team has accomplished several team and individual goals entering its last two matches of the season. The Scarlet Knights (9-5, 6-2) have an impressive record in dual competition and been able to win six of their eight matches against EIWA conference opponents. Both records set the team up nicely for postseason wrestling.
Sophomore Billy Smith pushed his record to 20-5 after winning in the second tiebreaker of sudden victory against Lehigh.
A three-match stretch against three ranked opponents is not exactly the easiest way to wrap up the last part of a team’s schedule on the road. For the Rutgers wrestling team, the difficult stretch, where it grappled then-No. 17 Iowa State and then-No. 3 Cornell, will come to a close when it wrestles No. 23 Lehigh (7-5, 3-2) tomorrow in Bethlehem, Pa.
Senior 133-pounder Vinnie Dellefave said the Knights built on their win last season against No. 23 Lehigh.
The history of the matchup between the Rutgers wrestling team and Lehigh dates back to February 1941, when the Mountain Hawks defeated the Scarlet Knights, 34-0. Since then, Rutgers and Lehigh met more than 40 times. The all-time record between the two programs is not exactly even, as the Mountain Hawks hold a 41-2 overall-series record.
Junior 165-pounder Nick Visicaro gained a major decision last year against Lehigh.
With three matches remaining in the regular season, the Rutgers wrestling team has already found another way to prepare for the high-caliber competition they will face when they make the switch to the Big Ten conference. Three more Scarlet Knights have enrolled as mid-season additions.
Head coach Scott Goodale said newly-admitted junior Andrew Campolattano is capable of winning a national title. Campolattano compiled a 40-26 record wrestling at 197 pounds and qualified twice for the NCAA tournament in his two years at Ohio State.
