WAYNESBURG, Pa. (Dec. 12) – The Waynesburg University wrestling team returned home for its first action at the Rudy Marisa Fieldhouse since Wednesday, Nov. 4, by hosting a quad-match on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets defeated West Virginia Tech, before dropping matches against 12th-ranked Stevens Institute of Technology and 16th-ranked Baldwin Wallace.

Waynesburg (2-4) downed the Golden Bears (2-6) 43-9, before falling 26-19 to Stevens (6-2) and 30-12 to Baldwin Wallace (7-3). The Jackets held leads in all three contests, and nearly upset the 12th-ranked Ducks in a match that featured a pair of Waynesburg losses that came by two points or less.

Junior 141-pounder Filippo Crivelli led the home team by going undefeated in three contested bouts. He started his day by downing West Virginia Tech's Dennis Marmalyukov by 13-3 major decision. Crivelli then notched a second-straight major decision (15-3) over Stevens' Gianpierre DiBattista. The Waynesburg standout ended his day by upsetting B-W's Josh Decatur 5-1. Decatur was listed as a contender for the top 10 on D3Wrestle.com.

Junior 184-pounder Ryan Shank also went 3-0 on the day. After picking up forfeits against both West Virginia Tech and Stevens, Shank downed BW's Ben Lebrun 6-1.

Freshman heavyweight Jake Evans posted a 2-0 mark on Saturday. After pinning Stevens' Pete Andrish in 2:14, Evans gutted out a 2-0 victory over BW's Joe Belford. Despite giving up around 40 pounds to Belford, who is an honorable mention listing on D3Wrestle.com, Evans took a 1-0 lead on a second-period escape, before riding out his opponent for the entire two minutes of period number three.

Sophomore 133-pounder Zach Swarrow went 2-1 at 133 pounds, with his only loss coming to Baldwin Wallace's Jesse Gunter. Gunter is not only the number-three-ranked wrestler in the country, but is a two-time Division III All-American. Swarrow picked up his team's fastest pin, which came in 49 seconds against West Virginia Tech's Brannon King. He also recorded an 8-0 major decision against Stevens' Joey Borai.

Senior Gordan Bieber and sophomore Tristan Buxton were both victorious at 125 pounds, as was senior heavyweight Greg Kumer. Sophomore 165-pounder Landon Lohr and freshman 174-pounder Mike Millero picked up forfeits against West Virginia Tech.

BW went 3-0 on the day, while Stevens posted a 2-1 record. West Virginia Tech dropped all three of its contests.
