Lydic Eighth at 149 Pounds in DII Coaches Association National Rankings

After nearly missing out on All American status last season, Griffin redshirt junior Ty Lydic enters the 2015-16 season ranked eighth at 149 pounds in the first Division II Wrestling Coaches Association national rankings. The national team and individual rankings were released on D2Wrestle.com on Wednesday afternoon.

Lydic joined the Griffins at the semester break last season and made an immediate impact on the team. Ty finished the season with an 13-5 record. Lydic entered the Super Regional ranked sixth at 149 pounds. Lydic opened the regional with a 5-3 victory. Ty then defeated #3 seed Andrew Bannister of Notre Dame (OH) 4-2 in the quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals on day two of the regional. Lydic opened day two with a 4-1 loss to #2 seed Jeremy Landowski of Mercyhurst in the semifinals. Ty responded with two straight victories to earn the trip to St Louis. Lydic defeated Jackson Stabile 6-3 in the consolation semifinal and then defeated Andrew Banister of Notre Dame (OH) by the score of 4-2 in the third place match.

At nationals, Lydic opened the tournament at 149 pounds with a 4-2 victory over #8 Reis Humphrey of New Mexico Highlands. Ty then dropped his quarterfinal match to #1 Frank Cagnina of Central Missouri by the score of 8-1. Lydic then dropped to consolation round two, needing a victory to earn All American status. Ty jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period but then gave up 6 straight points to Brett Fickel of Ashland and trailed 6-2 after one period. Lydic cut the lead to 7-5 after two periods but was outscored 6-0 in the third period to be eliminated by a 13-5 score.

The regional team and individual rankings will be released on Thursday.

Lydic and the Griffins will open the 2015-16 season this weekend at the Clarion Open.
