    Rendos named EIWA Wrestler of the Week

    Bucknell junior Andy Rendos has been named the first EIWA Wrestler of the Week of the new wrestling season. Rendos, a two-time NCAA Qualifier upset the Nicholas Marable of Missouri in a dual meet held on the Bucknell campus on Sunday. Marable is the defending champion in the Big 12 Conference, and placed third in the nation last season.

    Rendos, ranked 17th in the nation at 165, faced Marable, ranked first in the nation. Marable owned a 54-12 career record and was taken down just twice last year. Both wrestlers earned an escape during regulation as the match went into overtime tied 1-1. In the one-minute sudden-victory overtime period Rendos nearly posted a takedown, but Marable was able to get out of bounds first. Rendos then reversed Marable at the end of the first of two 30-second overtime frames to go up 3-1. Neither wrestler scored in the final 30-second period as Rendos picked up his 61st career win.
