Cornell Big Red Wrestling

Recommended Posts

LaJoie eeks out a 4-3 victory in tie breakers, he'll get to the semis!

Tucker does Tucker things, wins 7-3.

(Meanwhile 2 seed Paetzel loses by fall to 7 seed Manchio - Cornell is momentarily at least in 1st place)

Navy's Tribus ends the run with an 8-0 MD over Boughman.

(Gotta run, guys - it's showtime!)

And that means he is Cornell's first NCAA qualifier, right? 7 slots and worst case 6th place finish now.

Watched Santoro lock up a cradle, take Drexel to hip but couldn’t keep it.  In third period, he gets cradled, Drexel keeps it, and teaches Santoro how to finish with it.

Somebody needs to teach Santoro how to finish a cradle. He has had several locked up tight vs. Heller from Hofstra but seemed to have no idea what to do with them.

But he pulls out the decision. Dawkins, Womack, and Loew left tonight.

Womack close again but can't get it done and is eliminated. Depending on what happens elsewhere he has a decent shot of getting an at-large bid.

Everyone else advances. Lajoie, Tucker, Richard, Darmstadt, Furman in the semis. Baughman, Santoro, Dawkins, Loew in Consi of 4.

All of the next round matchups are very winnable except 285 - Furman will have his hands full with Wood from Lehigh.

Cornell sitting in 3rd heading into Day 2.

125: Thought Lajoie wrestled great and capitalized on his gift from the wrestling gods with the drexel roll thru pin of Colaiocco. 133: Tucker looked great. 141: Baughman looked pretty good; wrestled to his ability and won the ones he was supposed to. 149: Richard is a goer--looked great and can't wait to see the matchup with Hoffman. 157: Sure wish Santoro would've capitalized on the cradle he had locked up on Kropman. Gunna take him wrestling outside himself to get top 3 and qualify. 165: Dawkins with actually a pretty good day. He is very good at keeping matches close with good guys. Don't know anything about this Hofstra guy so no idea how he matches up. 174: This Womack thing is starting to look like a disaster. Gotta figure he wasn't even close to ready to go but convinced Koll to let him wrestle to finish out his career. I thought all he had to do was step on the mat to get an at-large bid but as someone corrected me earlier it depended on his performance to an extent. So now I have no idea what the chances are since this American loss definitely will hurt his CP. 184: Loew is so good but I feel like when he wrestles someone ranked higher he finds a way to get majored. Unsure if he can find a way to top 4 but he definitely has the tools. 197: Darmstadt has been completely lights out and is fun to watch. I think he takes out Brucki again easily tomorrow in the finals. 285: Furman was a great surprise to the day and he an be so good at times. He is in a position for top 3 for sure and lets not count him out against Wood in tomorrows semis.

Loew outwrestled by T. Harvey.  Harvey was aggressive.  Had more hustle ... better on reshots and shots.

Loew is going to be really good. Great pick up by Cornell as he was pretty much under the radar in high school. Just not on Harvey's level yet.

LaJoie... great work, kid. Enjoy the trip.

Tucker's got Casey Cobb to punch his ticket and he's definitely the favorite. He gets in no matter what but still, let's get that trophy.

Baughman's route got easier because Profaci lost to Gil in SV. If he beats Gil he has the loser of Pomrinca-Kazimir (who he beat at the dual). Not easy but doable.

Hunter still needs a win. Hoffman in the semis, and if he falters, he gets the winner of Prince/Revano. (If he loses, he gets Prince.) Let's do this.

Santoro still alive. Has a winnable match next but he has to wrestle smarter. He couldn't convert his cradles yesterday (as someone else pointed out) and he usually didn't even get credit for the takedown. The match against Heller shouldn't have been close. After that it gets much harder: loser of Hartman/Humphries.

Dawkins has been wrestling really well. Great defense all tournament. Stamm from Hofstra then the loser of Conigliaro/Hartman. Tough road.

Womack. Damn, dude. He couldn't protect his legs and Wokasch learned quickly that he should catch and release so he did. Not sure why Womack took bottom in the third. Really predictable that he'd get the escape point but working from top was really his best shot at a W. He's got the win% and he'll probably keep the RPI but I don't know about CR and he only has one good win (over Mantanona).

Loew got worked by Harvey. He was tentative and paid for it. Good bounceback win over Sacred Heart (though the Sacred Heart kid may have gotten a team penalty point for bitching about stalling or something after the match). A match he should win in Inlander then the loser of Weiler/Stewart. Tough road.

Darmstadt doing Darmstadt things. A tech and a pin. Win it all, Ben.

Furman got exactly what he needed: an injured Sullivan. Sullivan had no offense after he hurt himself in the opening match and it carried into the Furman match. Furman's takedown at the end after fighting off a single leg was incredible. Sullivan then injury defaulted in his first consy match. Of course now Furman's got to face Wood, and if (when, probably) he loses that needs two wins on the bottom: the winner of Doyle/Camacho and then most likely Knighton-Ward. With Sullivan out it's not impossible anymore.

Let's have fun out there.

Womack was wearing a big shoulder harness. Maybe he is  just not physically sound. He does look tired and a bit slow.

definitely not in peak condition but here definitely looked strong. so close to winning with a Peterson against Wokasch but that was the last time Womack was anywhere but neutral for more than a few seconds.

Fun fact ofthe day: Darmstadt will be wrestling his childhood friend from the neighborhood in semi’s today. Biddy, Club, and HS, they have been drill partners since 3/4th grade, state champs together, fargo roommates, AA’s...

They have never wrestled each other in competition....

In PIAA, McClenahan is in the finals and Handlovic's semi is in the morning session. 

Handlovic wins 4-0. A finalist in each145 division who should have fun together at FLWC next year figuring out their weights.
