The Old Dominion wrestling team defeated Delaware State 36-7 on Thursday in non-conference action in Dover, DE.

The Monarchs won eight of the ten weight classes to earn the victory. ODU is now 6-9 overall on the season with a 2-4 conference mark.

Highlighting the win for ODU was senior Ben Summerlin (Lynchburg, VA) who picked up his tenth pin of the season in just :50 seconds over the Hornet's Josh Keitt. He is now 22-4 on the year while teammates Derrell Lorthridge (Wilmington, DE) and Adam Wright (Bridgewater, VA) both improved their win totals to a team-high 24. Lorthridge defeated David Mears with a 15-3 major decision at heavyweight and 184-pounder Wright won via forfeit. Also picking up major decisions was redshirt freshman Chris Buckner (Chesapeake, VA) at 133, with a 14-0 score, and senior Dave Kaplan (Woodbridge, VA) earned a 17-7 major at 165 pounds.

ODU returns home for the final time on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. when they host James Madison in the ODU Fieldhouse. The five Monarch seniors will be honored in a pre-match ceremony.
