Broncs Host Princeton Saturday

2012-13 Broncs led by Nationally Ranked Santiago

LAWRENCEVILLE-The Rider wrestling team will make its 2012-13 home debut Saturday afternoon, hosting cross-town rival Princeton at 1pm in Alumni Gymnasium.

The first dual meet in the newly refurbished Alumni Gymnasium can be seen on the BroncSportsNetwork, with live video streaming on BroncVison.

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking the "purchase tickets online" link in this story or in person at the ticket window in the lobby of Alumni Gymnasium.  The ticket booth will open at 12 noon for Saturday's dual meet.

The 2-0 Broncs are led by junior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville), who is currently ranked 15th in the nation by Amateur Wrestling News in his new 165 pound weight class.

"Ramon is progressing nicely in his career here at Rider and is off to a good start," said Rider head coach Gary Taylor. "He moved up a weight class this year and spent the summer lifting into it."

This season Santiago (10-1, 2-0 duals) finished first at the Binghamton Open and runner-up at the Keystone Classic. "Based on the success thus far it appears this is the weight class where he can compete best," Taylor said.

Last season Santiago placed third at the CAAs with 17 wins at 157 pounds, third most on the team. "We look for big things from Ramon both this year and in the future," Taylor said.

Other Broncs off to good starts include senior 157 Zac Cibula (Luxemburg, Wis./Luxemburg Casco), sophomore 133 Jimmy Morris (Northport, NY/St. Anthony's) and 148 freshman Curt Delia (Mullica Hill, NJ/Delsea).

Cibula began last year ranked 12th and placed third at CAAs. This year he is off to a 12-5 start, placing fourth at both the Binghamton Open and Keystone.

Morris was the three-time CAA Rookie of the Week last year and this year is off to a 10-5 start, 2-0 in duals.  Delia began his collegiate career with a third place finish at Keystone and brings a 10-3 record to his Alumni Gym debut.

Rider defeated Princeton last season 30-10 and 24-13 the year before.  The Broncs have won 11 of the last 13 dual meets against the Tigers.
