Adam Frey Classic Results .....

Hamlin defeated three-time NCAA qualifier Jimmy Resnick of Rider in one of the most anticipated matches of the event, an exhibition that does not count on a wrestler's official college record.

According to event organizer Josh Liebman, the match of the fundraiser featured a draw between North Carolina State's Scott Delvecchio and Mike Pongracz of Delaware Valley High in New Jersey, who will be on the roster at University of Tennessee-Chattanooga this fall.

Deutsch over Kraisser was notable to me. Kraisser is very good, was ACC freshman of the year and gave NCAA champ Delgado a hell of a scare in the third at nationals. He has been a Kolat protege for some time and has solid skills.

 

Was anybody there? How did the match go?

I just quoted a release but there is info there but it's about the upcoming event (meaning nothing updated that I could see results-wise). That quote sounds like something that was there from earlier releases.

The above-quoted article was what I wrote Sunday (after the event) for news website Examiner.com, based on info provided by Adam Frey Classic organizer Josh Liebman. Sadly, I was not there for the event, so, I'm not able to provide any additional details.

Unfortunately this tournament no longer has the marquee matchups it once had.

 

I thought Dubuque Valenti was one of the coolest matches anyone could have come up with years ago (both 2 timers with a college and HS history). Unfortunately looked to me like Valenti didn't take the match seriously (lost on that ridiculous spin around takedown attempt)

It was pretty much a setup. They were having fun. (I imagine Joe would say he had more fun though).

Not sure why anyone would think these were super-serious in the first place. It's for a great cause. I don't believe they weigh in. They have no bearing on anything else.

I know. But this was a chance to see them shortly after their peak and I always wondered how they'd do against one another. Similar styles, but I'd give the edge to Dubuque - he strikes me as one of the smartest guys in wrestling. Great technique and game plans. Unfortunately, neither of them had folkstyle styles that translate well to freestyle (both good riders and good on bottom, better at neutral defense than offense)
