Rider Hosts #22 Bloomsburg Friday
Taylor Seeks Win #400
LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—The Rider University wrestling team will host 22nd ranked Bloomsburg University Friday in an Eastern Wrestling League dual meet.
Rider head coach Gary Taylor will seek to become just the second active wrestling coach to compile 400 wins at a Division I program.
The match begins at 7pm in Alumni Gymnasium and can be seen on BroncVision on your computer at www.GoBroncs.com
Rider (9-5, 3-1 EWL) is coming off a sixth place finish at the VA Duals, where the Broncs won three of five matches, including wins over Arizona State, The Citadel and EWL-foe George Mason.
The Broncs, ranked third in the EWL, are led by sophomore Robert Deutsch (Cherry Hill, NJ/Eastern Regional), who is ranked 16th in the nation at 125.
Sophomore Curt Delia (Mullica Hill, NJ/Delsea) was recently named the EWL Wrestler of the Week after going 5-0 at the VA Duals.
Coach Taylor is in his 36th season at Rider and enters Friday’s dual meet with a career record of 399-226-4. University of Minnesota head coach Jay Robinson is the only active head coach to have 400 wins all at a Division I program with 411.
A seven-time Conference Coach of the Year, Taylor has led Rider to 13 conference titles, with 96 individual conference champions, 152 NCAA qualifiers and 13 All-Americans.
