When the Rutgers wrestling team heads to Lewisburg, Pa., this
weekend for the EIWA Tournament, the outlook will be different than
in years' past. No. 1 Cornell plans to bring home its fifth

position to dethrone the Big Red.
Sophomore 133-pounder Matt Fusco, bottom, looks to earn an

A redshirt year in wrestling is unlike one in any other sport.
Often times, it is used in college sports solely for medical

The Rutgers wrestling team finished off the dual match portion
of its schedule on Sunday, when the team traveled to Philadelphia
for a tussle with Drexel.
Sophomore 125-pounder Joe Langel finished the dual meet season
with an 11-4 record after Sunday's 9-1 major decision over Drexel's
Michael Gomez. Langel split time early in the season at 125 pounds
with classmate Matt Fusco, but started at the weight class in every
match after upsetting Virginia Tech's 13th-ranked Jarrod
When Matt Fusco approached Scott Goodale two days before the
Rutgers wrestling team's match against Lehigh, it confirmed what

after falling to No. 19 Brandon Hatchett of Lehigh last night at
the Louis Brown Athletic Center. The Knights then dropepd the
match's final four bouts, failing to earn the program's first
victory over the Mountain Hawks in over half a century.

are you would not see the name "Joe Langel."
Sophomore 125-pounder Joe Langel, top, took down three ranked
opponents at three home meets throughout the season, including last
week's 7-4 decision over Nick Arujau of American. The Howell, N.J.,
native lost his match last year against Lehigh.
Midway through its match with American, the Rutgers wrestling
team found itself in a precarious position — losing. Not only were
the No. 7 Scarlet Knights trailing, but they were down to a team
ranked below them.
Junior Mike DeMarco evened his dual-match record at 9-9 last
night with a critical 7-5 victory at 133 pounds over American's
Kevin Tao. The decision gave Rutgers an early 6-0 advantage.
It may not come with the prestige of a dual at the Louis Brown
Athletic Center or the recognition a wrestling powerhouse might
bring, but tonight's matchup between the Rutgers wrestling team and
American is going to be a test.
Sophomore 165-pounder Scott Winston is 16-2 in his first season
