    American  

    The Eagles hosted Utah Valley to a dual on Thursday night. They followed that up with a Saturday at the Navy Classic. In their dual #14 Maida, #31 Jarrell, and Nies all won. Jarrell picked up a fall in the only bonus point victory for American. At the Navy Classic, they brought a limited roster to help keep a majority of starters well-rested for the long season. Shamil Kalmatov, Carsten Rawls, Will Jarrell, and Emmanuel Ulrich all went 2-2 on the day. Finally, American took Tuesday’s “Turkey Tussle” from local rival George Mason.

Gunner Filipowicz had an upset win over #18 Faison. On Sunday’s Black Knight Invite, Army saw fantastic performances from many wrestlers – leading to the overall team championship over Penn State and Rutgers. The Black Knights dealt with “friendly fire” at 149lbs, where Thomas Deck and Matthew Williams each made the finals – where no contest was the final outcome. Ethan Berginc, Dillon Sheehy, and Braden Basile also finished runners-up. Bronze medals were awarded to Nate Lukez and Lucas Stoddard. Rich Treanor and Danny Lawrence were both 4th place finishers. Ending the day in 6th were Tristen Hitchcock, Micah Hanau, Kyle Swartz, and Charlie Farmer.

    The Bearcats will be in action at the Mat-Town Open in Lock Haven this weekend, but expect a limited number of starters due to the holiday. Plus, they will be at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invite the following week. 

    Brown 

    The Bears competed in the Black Knight Invite. They walked away with 3 place-winners. James Araneo led the way at 197 lbs with a 3rd place finish. Brown saw two fifth-place winners in Blake Saito at 157 lbs and Jonathan Conrad at 174 lbs. Multiple wrestlers won two matches, just shy of placing in the top six. 

    The Bears of Brown University will be off for a few weeks. They do not compete until right before the Christmas Holiday. Expect improvements over this span. 

    Bucknell 

    The Bucknell Bison were at home squaring off in a dual against #14 Minnesota on Thursday. Saturday’s agenda included the Navy Classic. #31 Noah Mulvaney was the lone victor in a tough outing versus Minnesota. The Navy Classic showed much better results. Kurtis Phipps was the champion at 133lbs. Dylan Chappell was the runner-up behind top-ranked Lovett of Nebraska at 149 lbs. Dorian Crosby won a bronze medal at heavyweight. At 157 lbs, the battle for 3rd place was won by Cade Wirnsberger, as he defeated his teammate Nick Delp by a 4-2 decision. Noah Mulvaney ended the day in 4th place. Mikey Bartush and Myles Takats each earned 6th place. As a team, Bucknell finished in 4th.

    Columbia 

     The Lions challenged themselves this weekend with home duals against #6 Ohio State and #9 Michigan. #11 Angelo Rini took home the only win for the Lions on the weekend. In a marquee match-up with All-American, #7 Chris Cannon, Rini won via injury default. A head-to-head collision sequence caused the match to be shortened. The Lions were outmatched in this one but held their own in some matches.

    Cornell 

    The Big Red opened the dual season with a home match against Sacred Heart. They won in dominant fashion. One thing to note is Chris Foca’s weight change up to 184 lbs – we will see if this is a permanent or temporary option for Foca and the Big Red.

    There will be a few Cornell wrestlers at the Mat-Town Open before a full lineup competes next week at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invite. 

    Drexel 

    The Dragons walked down the block to compete at the Keystone Classic. They finished in third place overall. The top placewinner was a breakout performance by true freshman, Jasiah Queen. He finished runner-up at 174 lbs with two tech falls and a pin. Desmond Pleasant and Jack Janda were 4th place at 125 lbs and 174 lbs, respectively. Cody Walsh was 5th place to end the day while Santino Marino was 6th. In 7th place were Natty Lapinski and Tanner Updegraff. Dom Findora and Ibrahim Ameer were each in 8th place. The upset of the weekend came at the hands of 133 lbs wrestler, John Hildebrandt, who shocked #7 Michael Colaiocco of Penn in the first round. Unfortunately, he lost the next two matches afterward - a very nice win, nonetheless.  

    The Dragons will take the week off for the holiday. See them in action for the Dragon Duals on December 3rd. 

    Franklin & Marshall 

     The Diplomats were at the Keystone Classic and had a historic weekend. James Conway won the 184 lbs bracket, which was the first-ever championship by a Diplomat at this event. He knocked off Hale of Penn and #21 Fisher of Virginia Tech. At 197 lbs, John Crawford was the runner-up behind #16 Andy Smith of Virginia Tech. They had two third-place finishes in Pat Phillips and Noah Fox. Mason Leiphart was 4th in a tough bracket. Rounding out the place finishers was Bryce Kresho in 8th. F&M’s 5th place finish was very impressive, just a few points out from 3rd place.

    The Dips will be off for Thanksgiving. They have four duals at home the following week.

    Harvard 

    The Crimson placed four wrestlers at The Keystone Classic. #24 Diego Sotelo was the highest placer when he placed 3rd at 125 lbs. Freshman Coleman Nogle was 5th at 133 lbs. Jack Crook reached his match limit on the day and earned 6th at 149 lbs. At 157 lbs, Jimmy Harrington was 4-2 on the day – good enough for 7th place. The team’s veteran leaders will return in the second semester. Expect more individual results in these events come January. 

    The Crimson, like most teams, will be on break during the Thanksgiving holiday.

     

    Hofstra 

    The Pride welcomed Ohio State Head Coach, Tom Ryan back to Long Island; where he began his head coaching career. It was a long day for the Hofstra Pride, as Ohio State outmatched them in all ten bouts. Hofstra is still a young team trying to figure out their best lineup early in the season. 

    #6 Ohio State 51, Hofstra 0

    165: #18 Bryce Hepner (Ohio State) over Matt Rogers (Hofstra) (Tech Fall, 18-2). 5-0

    Hofstra will take the holiday break to regroup and finalize the lineup to get ready for the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invite.  

     

    Lehigh 

    The Mountain Hawks hosted #18 Pitt to a dual. Lehigh jumped out to a lead thanks to wins by freshmen Luke Stanich and #5 Ryan Crookham. Crookham’s major decision was over #13 Santaniello. Pitt ran the table until #11 Michael Beard earned a tech fall win over #18 Stout at 197 lbs. It may be important to note that two of Lehigh’s ranked starters missed the match due to injury – Hines (#11 @ 141 lbs) and Brignola (#25 @ 157 lbs).

    Long Island 

    The Sharks had two duals on Friday. They were defeated in both of them. Against Virginia, James Johnston was the lone winner.

    The Sharks will take the holiday break and prepare for the tough Cliff Keen Invite. 

    Navy 

    The Midshipmen hosted the Navy Classic on Saturday. Navy walked away with a second-place team finish behind a powerful Nebraska squad. They had two champs in #30 Danny Wask at 174 lbs and #10 Grady Griess at 285 lbs – as they were both the top-seeded wrestlers entering the day. Navy had three runners-up in Josh Koderhandt, David Key, and Jonathan Ley. Evan Tallmadge was third, Jamier Ferere was 4th, while both Nick Vafiadis and Zyan Hall were 5th. Navy’s performance was tops for the EIWA teams with Princeton a couple points behind and Bucknell only a handful after that. 

    Navy will be off this weekend in prep for the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invite. It’s the toughest tournament of the regular season. 

    Penn 

    The University of Pennsylvania was the host site of the Keystone Classic. They finished the day at the top of the team standings over a not-quite-full Virginia Tech lineup, who was missing a few studs. Regardless, they walked away with four champs. Max Gallagher, Alex Almeyda, and CJ Composto swept the first three weight classes. Nick Incontrera easily won the 174 lbs bracket. Jackson Polo was the runner-up at 149 lbs, as Ryan Miller lost in the finals at 125 lbs to Gallagher. The Quakers saw a handful of bronze medals with Michael Colaiocco, Jude Swisher, Kelly Dunnigan, Martin Cosgrove, and Max Hale. Cole Urbas was 4th place, as was John Stout. In 5th were Hunter Gandy and Lucas Revano. Jacob Stefanowicz and Matt Cruise were 8th. Alex Almeyda was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler of the event, after beating three ranked wrestlers in the toughest bracket of the day. The youth really shined through for Penn, as there were several “wrestle-off” matches between teammates. Penn has a lot of line-up decisions to make before they take on #7 Iowa in two weeks. The depth is starting to become a “good problem.” 

    Princeton 

    The Tigers finished third place at the Navy Classic. They had one champion in #12 Luke Stout at 197 lbs – who defeated #7 Allred of Nebraska in the finals. Also in that bracket was Aidan Conner, who took home bronze. Nate Dugan was 3rd place as well in his bracket. In 4th was freshman, Eligh Rivera, at 149lbs. The 4 fifth-place finishers for the Tigers were Drew Heethuis, Matthew Cover, Sean Pierson, and Tyler Vasquez. Overall, it was a good day for Princeton. The underclassmen came through in a big way to help elevate the team to a satisfactory finish. 

    The Tigers will relax over the holiday break and not have any competition. 

    Sacred Heart 

     The Pioneers were busy this past weekend with three duals and a sparse lineup for the Keystone Classic. Andrew Fallon, at 133lbs, was the bright spot of the squad as he went 3-0 on the weekend, including two tech falls. Against Presbyterian, Mike McGhee, Scott Jarosz, and Jake Trovato also had wins.
