Nov. 16, 2017
The NAVY wrestling team (2-0, 0-0 EIWA) returns home to play host to the 40th annual NAVY Classic on Saturday at the Wesley Brown Field House beginning at 10:00 am. Having won the team title in 19 of the 39 years the tournament has been held, the Mids will battle 16 teams — American, Brown, Bucknell, Campbell, The Citadel, Columbia, Delaware Valley, George Mason, Hofstra, Indiana, (RV) Kent State, Ohio, Old Dominion, Oregon State, Princeton and #22 Purdue — for the 2017 NAVY Classic crown.

There are 19 nationally-ranked wrestlers among this year’s field, with at least one ranked wrestler in all 10 weight classes, including four at 197 pounds. While there are 29 returning placewinners from last year’s NAVY Classic, there will be a new champion crowned in five of the 10 weight classes. Back to defend their 2016 NAVY Classic title are Kent State’s Anthony Tutolo at 133 pounds, Bucknell’s Tyler Smith at 141 pounds, Indiana’s Bryce Martin at 165 pounds, NAVY’s Jadaen Bernstein (Sr / Glen Gardner, N.J.) at 174 pounds and NAVY’s Steban Cervantes (Sr / Poway, Calif.) at 197 pounds.

NAVY is among the 14 teams who have combined to win the 39 previously wrestled NAVY Classics. The Mids last won the title in 2011, when five NAVY wrestlers won individual crowns. Among the 14 teams, 2017 competitors Purdue (2001), The Citadel (2003), Kent State (2012), Princeton (2015) and Indiana (2016) have previously won the team title. A different team has won the tournament crown in each of the last six years.

The Midshipmen are coming off spectacular performances that saw 11 wrestlers earn individual titles at the Eastern Michigan Open and Ursinus Fall Brawl a week ago. Winners from the Eastern Michigan Open included 141-pound Nicholas Gil (Jr / Crystal Lake, Ill.), 165-pound Drew Daniels (Sr / Overland Park, Kan.), 174-pound AJ Alford (So / Beech Island, S.C.) and 184-pound Michael Coleman (Sr / Hudson, Ohio ). In the freshman / sophomore division, 157-pound Quentin Hovis (Fr / Poway, Calif.) claimed the title. Meanwhile, winners at the Urinus Fall Brawl included 125-pound Logan Treaster (Fr / Newton, Kan.), 133-pound Jonathan Gabriel (Fr / Bedford, Pa.), 141-pound Kyle Trybus (Fr / Elkton, Md.), 157-pound Scout Skidgel (Fr / Tulsa, Okla.), 174-pound Spencer Carey (So / Ringwood, N.J.) and 197-pound Nick Mabry (Sr / New Braunfels, Texas).

Three Individual Champions Lift Wrestling to NAVY Classic Title

Nicholas Gil, Drew Daniels and Jadaen Bernstein all won their weight classes to lead NAVY.

Nov. 18, 2017

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The NAVY wrestling team won the 40th Annual NAVY Classic on Saturday at Wesley Brown Field House behind a strong team effort which featured three individual champions. It is the first team championship in the NAVY Classic for the Midshipmen since winning seven of eight titles from 2004 to 2011.
“The team is the highlight of today’s victory at the NAVY Classic,” head coach Joel Sharratt said after the competition. “We competed hard at all 10 weight classes and when this team does that great things are going to happen.”

The Midshipmen posted a team score of 112.5 to win the event. Purdue finished second with a combined tally of 100.5, just ahead of Old Dominion (98.5). Indiana (81.5) and Princeton (74.5) rounded out the top five of the field.

Nicholas Gil (Crystal Lake, Ill.), Drew Daniels (Overland Park, Kan.) and Jadaen Bernstein (Glen Gardner, N.J.) all won their weight classes to pace the Midshipmen scoring.

Gil competed in four matches in the 141-pound weight class on the day, recording a pair of major decisions. After starting the day with a bye, the junior posted an 8-0 major decision to advance. Gil notched a 2-0 decision against Jack Mutchnik from American to move to the semifinals. He advanced to the finals with an 8-3 decision over Indiana’s Cole Weaver. In the championship, Gil defeated Old Dominion’s Alex Madrigal with a major decision, 11-2.

“Standout performance was Nick Gil who wrestled extremely strong all the way through today’s event,” Sharratt said. “He was our most dominant wrestler in the finals and he still has more skill to develop.”

Bernstein was the Mids’ top performer at 174, going 5-0 on the day to win the individual championship. The senior opened the day with back-to-back major decision victories, beating Bucknell’s Frank Guida (W, 14-4) and Brown’s Andrew LaBrie (W, 13-5). Bernstein continued with a 7-3 decision over Dylan Barreiro of Kent State in the quarterfinals before notching a 5-1 decision over Seldon Wright of ODU in the semifinals. In the finals, Bernstein edged Indiana’s Devin Skatzka, 5-3, to win the title.

In the 165-pound weight class, Daniels posted five victories to win the championship. He opened the day with a 6-3 decision against Brendan May of George Mason, advancing to take on Ben Schram of ODU, who advanced via a bye. Against Schram, Daniels notched a 3-1 sudden victory to move ahead in the bracket to face Austin Reese of Ohio. The senior earned a one-point victory (4-3) to advance to the semifinals, where he defeated Campbell’s Quentin Perez. In the finals, Daniels registered a sudden victory (3-1) over Indian’s Bryce Martin to claim the weight class.

“Bernstein and Daniel had great days. This was Bernstein’s first event since our opening weekend and he started a little slow but his finals match was true Bernstein style that did not allow his opener to even get a handful of shots attempted. Daniels has to feel great about his day. He opened up and wrestled his matches today and brought home a hard fought victory in the finals via OT.”

Brant Leadbeter (Owings, Md.) was the top performer in the 125-weight class, advancing to the quarterfinals before moving to the consolation bracket (MED FORFEITED OUT - hopefully nothing serious...). Cody Trybus (Elkton, Md.) picked up four wins on the day out of the consolation bracket at 133. (Impressive Plebe) Corey Wilding (Pittsburgh, Pa.) notched a win in the round of 32 of the 149-pound weight class and four victories (Three by pin in under 3 minutes, 4th by MD; did not contest 5th place match) in the consolation bracket. (Lost a tight one to #2 seed Sprague (AU) and eventual 2nd place finisher in round of 16) Zack Davis (Granger, Ind.) was the top performer at 157, notching a pair of Ws in the round of 32 and 16 before advancing through the consolation bracket to claim fifth place. (Lost a tight one to eventual champion Staudenmayer(Brown) in QF) Michael Coleman (Hudson, Ohio) came up just short in the 184 group, falling to Christian Lafragola of Brown, 8-6, in the championship. (Was up 4-3 w/less than a minute left in the 3rd; gave up a takedown and 2 back before getting reversal to trail 6-7 w/26 sec left; released in effort to get takedown...) At 197, Joshua Roetman (Kotzebue, Alaska) posted a pair of wins on the day, while Austin Faunce (Lake Oswego, Ore.) picked up two wins at 285.

“Great team work,” Sharratt added. “They have earned a nice Thanksgiving week of recovery in preparation for the Cliff Keen.” NAVY will next be in action at the Cliff Keen Invitational in Las Vegas on the weekend of Dec. 1-2.

Navy is back!!
A lot of wrestling yesterday with 8 mats running non-stop from 10AM to past 6:30PM - many highlights for a Navy team that reminds me of the Ed Peery days.
With so many mats I was not able to watch everybody, but I'll give short summaries of what I did see.
125 - Navy still needs improvement here.
133 - Cody Trybus is a freshman on the rise. Tough draw losing a close match to ranked Caleb Richardson in his 2nd bout and then wrestled well until he hit Richardson again in the wrestlebacks.
141 - Nick Gil dominated a tough field and is on a mission to prove himself - w/ Prince dinged I am not sure he will be able to beat Gil when he does get back on the mat.
!49 – Cory Wilding is a bad draw for anyone – his only loss was a close match w/ AU’s Michael Sprague.
157 – It looked like Zach Davis had Brown’s Stademeyer (the eventual champ) beat only to get reversed w/ 5 seconds to go and lose 2-1. Quentin Hovis us going to be REALLY good, his 2 loses were both very close – he just needs to muscle up a little as he is already very skilled
165 – Talented Drew Daniels wins his 2nd tournament this young season has to be gaining confidence that will enable him to win matches by larger margins – but he is extremely tough in tight matches.
174 – J Bernstein looked great – better than ever for the former EIWA champ and rnd of 12 last year.
184 – Michael Coleman dominated everyone until the finals where he showed a need for improved leg defense – which I’m confident will happen.
197 – Cervantes is slightly dinged and did not wrestle – back-up Roetman wrestled well and has a few dangerous tricks in his game.
285 – Andrew Piehl is VERY big and continues to show improvement though he will be challenged by Ott and Faunce for the starting role.
