Joey Langel consistently sparked the Rutgers wrestling team’s
lineup for the past two seasons, when he made the 125-pound spot in
the lineup his own. He wrestled up a weight class again Thursday
night against Drexel at the College Avenue Gym, but the result was
no different as he picked up the first points for the Scarlet
Knights en route to a 24-9 dual-meet victory to end the season.

Michael DeMarco last night in the Knights’ dual-meet finale against

Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale long said senior
133-pounder Michael DeMarco is the type of wrestler that embodies
his program. The Lyndhurst, N.J., native went winless in the state
tournament as a high school senior, walked on at Rutgers, then
fought his way into the lineup for four years. But he will be out
of the lineup for Senior Night tonight against Drexel at the
College Avenue Gym as he continues to recover from a torn lateral

Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale understands this
season is about the end of the year, not Saturday’s National Duals
regional bracket. That did little to make it any easier. Cal Poly
forfeited the matchups he wanted to test his All-American
candidates, and his 125-pounder forfeited a match of his own. The
Scarlet Knights fell, 24-22, to Cal Poly, receiving 18 of those
points after Cal Poly wrestlers opted not to take the mat at 174,
184 and 197 pounds.

Junior 149-pounder Mario Mason looks for position Saturday
against Cal Poly’s Adam Aslam.?Mason won, 24-11, for a major
decision, recording the only points Rutgers earned without
When a national dual-meet tournament was little more than an
idea a year ago, Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale had to
like his chances. The Scarlet Knights were on their way to a 21-2
dual-meet season — posting 20 wins for the second time in three
years and second time in program history. It allowed Rutgers to
host a regional bracket of the National Duals on Saturday at the
Louis Brown Athletic Center, even though the Knights are struggling

Mario Mason could have his pick of three top-10 showdowns this
weekend at the National Duals regional tournament, but Minnesota is
the team he really wants.The junior 149-pounder spent two seasons as a Golden Gopher — one
as a redshirt and one in the lineup — before transferring to
Junior 149-pounder Mario Mason positions himself Dec. 2 against
Old Dominion’s?Brennan?Brumley. Mason could earn an opportunity to
face Minnesota, where he spent two seasons, if the Knights score a
first-round win Saturday in the National Duals.
The victory by forfeit that started the Rutgers wrestling team’s
dual meet at Virginia on Saturday likely did little to make the
next five matches any more comfortable.While the Scarlet Knights took an early lead in Charlottesville,
Va., the next five matches — all losses — quickly erased it. The
points Greg Zannetti and Dan Rinaldi provided by decisions did not
mean much in the 24-12 dual meet loss.

Jan. 27. Rinaldi was one of two winners at Virginia.
Practices for the Rutgers wrestling team are gradually becoming
shorter, and dual meets hold even less importance.
With a 12-5 record and two dual meets and the National Duals
remaining, the Scarlet Knights will not even approach the 20-win
mark they passed two of the past three years. Head coach Scott
Goodale has no choice but to come to terms with it.

Gillespie on Friday in a 2-0 loss at their dual meet at the College
Avenue Gym. Winston faces another ranked foe this weekend in
17th-ranked Nick?Sulzer of Virginia.
Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale does not hesitate to
speak up for his wrestlers. No, he quickly responds, junior
197-pounder Dan Rinaldi does not get the respect or attention he
deserves nationally. The two-time NCAA Championships qualifier is
18-4 on the season and 13-1 in dual meets, but unranked in each of
the major national polls. Head coach Scott Goodale thinks Rinaldi
deserves better. Rinaldi could not care less.
