NORFOLK (Feb. 19) - Old Dominion's wrestling team moved to 5-5 on the year with wins over Howard (25-15) and Delaware State (35-9).
Maryland was the only team in the quad to beat the Monarchs, as they defeated ODU, 21-16, and Delaware State, 43-0.
Old Dominion sophomore Jeff Rusak (Reading, PA), ranked #14 in the nation at 165, won two bouts at 165 and one at 174 to move to 30-3 on the year and to advance his career dual record to a perfect 27-0. Monarch seniors Chris Harrington (North Ft. Myers, FL) and Chip Reyes (Virginia Beach, VA) went undefeated on the day at 184 and 125 pounds respectively, and along with senior Joel Jimenez (Norfolk, VA), the trio made their final home appearances.
Monarch freshman Jake Cairns (Brick, NJ) was 3-0 on the day at 157 pounds, scoring two major decisions, to move his record to 18-11 on the year. Old Dominion was without the services of Dennis Whitby (Lanoka Harbor, NJ) at 149 pounds. The freshman, who ranks second on the team in wins (19) and pins (5), suffered a knee injury on Feb. 13 against American and is out for at least two weeks.
The Monarchs will return to action on Thursday as they travel to Fairfax, VA, to wrap up the regular season in a CAA showdown with George Mason at 7:30 pm.
