NORFOLK, VA (Nov. 21) -- Old Dominion and The Citadel's wrestling teams both placed 12 wrestlers in ten weight divisions to lead the way at the Old Dominion University Wrestling Invitational. Apprentice School, The Citadel, Howard, Delaware State, Davidson and Old Dominion were competing, with The Citadel owning four individual champs, ODU three, Howard two and Apprentice one.

The Monarchs were led by sophomore Jeff Rusak (Reading, PA), who earned pins in all three of his matches to win the 165-pound division. With his three pins today, Rusak now has five pins and one tech-fall in six matches this season.

Senior Chip Reyes (Virginia Beach, VA) won two matches in the round-robin style competition in the 125-pound class to win the division, while freshman Dennis Whitby (Lanoka Harbor, NJ) scored three wins to take the 165-pound class.

Senior Chris Harrington (North Ft. Myers, FL) and sophomore George Sable (Middle Island, NY) finished second in their respective divisions (197 and 184). Brad Krepps (Dauberville, PA) finished in third at 184.

The Citadel scored wins at 141 with Anthony Brooker, 157 with Rob Bell, 184 with Mike Renger and 197 with Pat Hallwood. Howard?s Derek Butts (133) and Milton Yates (174), along with Apprentice?s Derrick Walker (Hwt.) also won their divisions.
