Rutgers head wrestling coach?Scott Goodale and the Scarlet
Knights went 2-1 this weekend at the Northeast Duals, bringing the
fourth-year coach’s dual-meet record to 73-22-1. Rutgers’ next dual
is Friday at the Louis Brown Athletic?Center against Old
Mario Mason calls it the matchup that never happened. Dating
back to high school, Mason and his South Jersey coach, John
Johnson, wanted Mason to wrestle Tulsa, Okla., native Jamal Parks
at a national tournament. It never happened. Mason wanted to meet
Parks again last year in the NCAA Tournament, but with their spots
on opposite sides of the 149-pound bracket, it would require Mason
matching Parks’ march to the final eight and All-American
A day removed from winning the Brockport/Oklahoma Gold Classic
174-pound title, Gregory Zannetti had no idea his 5-2 decision was
technically an upset. Maryland’s Jimmy Sheptock ranked only two
spots ahead of Zannetti, but Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott
Goodale certainly knew as much. Zannetti had no clue. The junior
pays little attention to rankings because like most college
recruiters, rankings long ignored Zannetti.
Junior 174-pounder Gregory Zannetti went 22-12 as a sophomore in
the Scarlet Knights’ lineup, including a 7-6 record in tournament
matches.?He is 3-0 with a title after Rutgers opened its season
last weekend at the Brockport/Oklahoma Gold?Classic.
Head wrestling coach Scott Goodale preaches to his team that a
redshirt season is meant for improvement, not to take time off.
Traveling home from Brockport, N.Y., Rutgers head wrestling
coach Scott Goodale could not shake a sense of frustration. The
Scarlet Knights placed five wrestlers in the finals of their weight
classes at the Brockport/Oklahoma Gold Classic, which juniors Mario
Mason and Gregory Zannetti won to lead the team to a third-place
finish. “I expect those guys to win,” Goodale said.

16th-ranked Nick Lester of Oklahoma to win the 149-pound bracket
this weekend at the Brockport/Oklahoma Gold?Classic.
Scott Winston does not expect the taste of last season to leave
his mouth any time soon. Instead of his lasting image of the NCAA
Championships being atop a podium, it is a cinderblock wall
underneath the Wells Fargo Center, where he sat and stared after
falling one win shy of All-American status. The junior 165-pounder
is not quite pleased with how his last trip to the
Brockport/Oklahoma Gold Classic ended, either — the wrong end of a
major decision against Maryland’s Josh Asper in the championship

Saturday for the first time since he lost to Brandon?Hatchett of
Lehigh at the NCAA?Championships to cap a 21-5 season that included
Junior Gregory Zannetti, red, beat sophomore Brendan?Ard, 5-2,

should provide more of a barometer for where they stand in the
Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale began courting Kevin
Malast when the latter was still a linebacker and captain on the
Rutgers football team. First, Goodale wanted Malast, who won 100
matches at Manchester Township High School, to wrestle for the
Scarlet Knights. Then, Goodale wanted him to coach. Goodale got his
wish last week.
Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale gave the fans credit
Friday after the Scarlet Knights’ annual wrestle-offs at the
College Avenue Gym. In an event that pits Rutgers wrestler against
Rutgers wrestler, it is impossible to cheer. He should give just as
much credit to his grapplers. “We do it for the fans, but nobody
really likes it,” said junior 174-pounder Gregory Zannetti.
Senior Dan Hopkins rides junior Jesse Boyden en route to a 7-0
decision in a first-round heavyweight matchup?Saturday at the

after his first four season with the Scarlet Knights.
Coach-speak lasted only so long with Rutgers head wrestling
coach Scott Goodale when asked what would make his fifth season in
Piscataway a successful one. “To be boring: Let’s get better every
day,” Goodale said. “But people around here are smart enough to
know that the end of the year is what this is all about.
Rutgers head wrestling coach Scott Goodale said his team needs
to place All-Americans in?March for the season to be a success.
The Rutgers wrestling team made changes to its offseason
training and its in-season approach to decision-making with the
goal of placing All-Americans in March at the NCAA?Championships.
