LANCASTER, PA-The Broncs defeated Sacred Heart and host Franklin & Marshall on Saturday. Rider won nine of 10 bouts against former conference foe Sacred Heart and won eight of 10 against F&M.

"One never knows what to expect with such a young group," said Rider head coach Gary Taylor, "but our kids wrestle well. It was a good day to get a couple wins and the young kids are getting good experience."

For Rider (8-7), sophomore Chuck Zeisloft (Woodbury Heights, N.J./Gateway), freshman Jimmy Morris (Northport, NY/St. Anthony's), sophomore Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville), freshman Clint Morrison (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cedar Cliff) and freshman Donald McNeil (Plainville, Mass./Wyoming Seminary) all won twice on Saturday.

"Jimmy Morris continues to look strong," Taylor said of his freshman 133 who has won hit last eight matches. "Clint did a nice job today. We had several people who I thought looked good."

Against Sacred Heart the Broncs got pins from Morris, sophomore James Brundage (Ossining, N.Y./Ossining) and McNeil and a tech fall from Santiago. "Ramon looked good," Taylor said.

The meet also saw the return of junior Zac Cibula (Luxemburg, Wis./Luxemburg Casco) to the mat. The 2011 CAA Championships Most Outstanding Wrestler, Cibula (4-3) has been side-lined for most of this season with injuries, but came back this morning to record a 3-0 win in his first bout in over a month.

"Getting Zac back really helps," Taylor said. "We still have other starters out (nationally ranked junior Jim Resnick, senior Jimmy Kirchner, freshman Vinny Fava) but we're getting them back one at a time."

Against F&M Santiago and Morrison won major decisions.

Rider travels to Philadelphia to take on Drexel in a Colonial Athletic Association dual meet Tuesday. "It is always a big rivalry with Drexel," Taylor said.  The Broncs defeated Drexel 19-18 earlier this year in a non-conference dual meet at the Virginia Duals.  "We're going to try to get some more people healthy by then and do everything we can to prepare for that match."
