Wrestling Competes In Quad With Plymouth State, Johnson & Wales, and Castleton

Providence, R.I. - February 2, 2019 - The Springfield College wrestling team went 1-2 in a quad meet hosted by Johnson & Wales on Saturday afternoon as it bested Plymouth State while falling to Castleton and host JWU.

In their first dual of the day, Springfield managed to win just three bouts as they were defeated by Castleton, 25-12.  The Pride got off to a great start as Ryan Harty (Plymouth, Mass.) produced a first-period pinfall in 2:48 at 157 to put Springfield up 6-0 early.  After the Spartans responded with a major decision at 165, Aarin Feliz (Lake Hawatha, N.J.) delivered an 11-5 decision at 174 to give the Pride a 9-4 edge, only to have Castleon reel off five-straight wins, including four decisions and a medical forfeit to have their advantage balloon to 22-9.  Michael Vietri (Dumont, N.J.) turned in a 7-5 decision at 141, but Castleton would add another decision at 149 en route to the 25-12 win.  

In their next dual, the Pride benefitted from five forfeits versus Plymouth State as it eased its way to a 47-6 triumph.  The match started at 157 and Harty wasted no time delivering another pin, this time in 1:57 to give Springfield a lead that it would not relinquish. The Panthers answered with a decision at 165, but after a forfeit at 174 and a pin by Seve Burgos (Guilford, Conn.) at 184 in 1:23 put Springfield comfortably in control.  The Pride would get four forfeits in the next five bouts and Kearney Gutierrez (Freeport, N.Y.) sealed the win with a 19-0 technical fall at 149. 

Battling JWU, who entered the weekend ranked second in the country in the most recent NWCA Division III National Poll, the Pride won three bouts en route to dropping a 30-11 decision.  Harty again prevailed at 157 by virtue of a hard-fought 8-3 decision for the Pride before the Wildcats would win the next six bouts, including a pair by forfeit.  Ian Tolotti (Dumont, N.J.) had a tremendous performance at 133 as he notched a 16-0 technical fall, and Gutierrez added a 12-6 decision at 149 to close out the evening.
