COLLEGE PARK, MD (Feb. 17, 2001) -- The Old Dominion wrestling squad dropped a heartbreaker to the University of Maryland this evening, 28-21. The match featured six pins and came down to the last bout, which the Terps put away for the victory.

The match began at 174 with Old Dominion's Jeff Rusak (Reading, PA) recording a pin against Maryland's Tony Capone, his 28th victory of the season. Freshman heavyweight Derrell Lorthridge (Wilmington, DE) pinned his opponent to give the Monarchs a 12-9 lead after four matches, but Maryland would come back to record pins at 125 and 133. A Terp decision at 141 pushed the Maryland lead to 24-12, but Old Dominion's Dennis Whitby (Lanoke Harbor, NJ) and Jesse Pearce (Norfolk, VA) claimed victories in the next two bouts to cut the lead to 24-21. Maryland's Josh Weldman snuffed hopes of a comeback victory, however, with a major decision at 165 in the last bout of the evening.

With the loss, Old Dominion falls to 6-6 on the year. The Monarchs will return to action on Sunday, February 18, when they host Delaware State.
