Wrestlers Travel to Midlands

EVANSTON, ILL-The Rider wrestling team will compete in the 50th Ken Kraft Midlands Championships, hosted by Northwestern University December 29-30.

The Midlands is the most prestigious amateur wrestling event in the nation, featuring the best collegiate and post-graduate wrestlers along with Olympic hopefuls.

"Our trip to the Midlands Championships is one of the premier events for us each year," said Rider head coach Gary Taylor. "It allows us to compete with the nation's best teams and wrestlers in order to evaluate our training progress at the mid-point of the season."

The Broncs have been led by junior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J.), ranked 16th by Amateur Wrestling News.  Santiago won his 165 weight class at the Binghamton Open and placed runner-up at Keystone, beginning the season 11-1.

Santiago went 2-2 at Midlands last year.

Senior Zac Cibula (Luxemburg, Wis.), ranked 28th by TheWrestlingReport, upset the ninth ranked 157 to begin the season 14-5. 

Cibula was 1-1 at Midlands last year.

Freshman Curt Delia (Mullica Hill, NJ) was named the CAA Rookie of the Month for November, beginning his collegiate career 11-4 overall.  Delia placed third at the Keystone Classic.

Sophomore Jimmy Morris (Northport, NY), ranked 32nd by TheWrestlingReport at 133, began the season 4-0 in dual meets and 13-4 overall with five pins.

Junior James Brundage (Ossining, N.Y.), ranked 24th by TheWrestlingReport at 174, placed runner-up at both Binghamton and Keystone.

The Broncs placed 24th of 42 teams last year.

Rider, currently ranked 48th by WIN Magazine, began the 2012-13 season at the Binghamton Open and the Broncs came home with champion, a runner-up, a third, a fourth and two fifth place finishers.

Rider began the dual meet season with victories over Lock Haven, Shippensburg and Princeton, and placed third of 15 teams at Penn's Keystone Classic.

Following Midlands the Broncs travel to New England for matches at Harvard in Boston and at Brown in Providence January 5.
