BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Cornell won its ninth consecutive EIWA title, matching a school record with five individual champions and comfortably holding off host Lehigh while qualifying eight of its 10 wrestlers for the upcoming NCAA championships in two weeks.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Cornell qualified six for the EIWA finals, but it was one wrestler that earned a spot in the third-place match that may have most excited the Big Red faithful on day two of the 2015 EIWA Championships at Lehigh's Stabler Arena.

Senior heavyweight Jacob Aiken-Phillips topped a pair of higher-seeded wrestlers in the consolation bracket to launch himself into the third place match and earn himself a spot at the NCAA championships for the first time in his career. He scored a comeback 7-6 victory over Hofstra's Michael Hughes in the second tiebreaker, using an escape after riding out the Pride grappler for the win. He then used a third period takedown of Columbia's Garrett Ryan, the Ivy League Rookie of the Year, to solidify his NCAA bid and send him into the third place match.

With seven NCAA qualifiers (sophomore Mike Grey could become an eighth at 133 this evening), the Big Red took command of the team lead in the morning session as well. With 151 points, Cornell enters the finals rounds with a 19-point advantage over second place Lehigh and is 65 points clear of third place Bucknell.

Nahshon Garrett had a big third period to pull away from Lehigh's Scott Parker, the first of three semifinal matchups between the two teams. Garrett, the top seed, with face 17th-ranked and second-seeded David Terao of American in the finals.

Chris Villalonga starts a run of five of six finals featuring Big Red wrestlers starting at 149. The senior topped Drexel's Matt Cimato in the semifinals by a 3-1 decision in the second tiebreaker. He will face sixth-seeded Chris Perez of Princeton in the finals.

Realbuto had a dominant semifinal win over 17th ranked Russell Parsons of Army, knocking off the No. 4 seed by a 12-3 major decision. He will wrestle for his first Eastern title tonight against American's John Boyle.

Dylan Palacio will have a chance to claim his first EIWA title as well when he meets No. 1 seed Peyton Walsh of Navy after avening one of his two losses this season with a 5-3 semifinal victory over Army's Coleman Gracey.

Both Gabe Dean (184) and Jace Bennett (197) won tight matches against top 10 foes in the semifinals, with Bennett using a late takedown and rideout of No. 10 Elliot Riddick of Lehigh for a 4-2 triumph. He will face fourth-seeded Canaan Bethea of Penn in the finals. Dean, meanwhile, knocked off Penn's Lorenzon Thomas, ranked seventh nationally, by a 10-7 decision in a high scoring bout. He will face Lehigh's third-ranked and second-seeded Nathaniel Brown in the finals in a match that will help determine the meet champion. It is the only finals matchup between the top two teams in the field.

Sophomore Mark Grey and junior Duke Pickett will also wrestle for third place after losses in the semifinals. Grey dropped a narrow 2-1 decision to Lehigh's Mason Beckman after surrendering a riding time point, but bounced back with a win over seventh-seeded Grimaldi Gonzalez of Bucknell in the wrestlebacks. He will face Columbia's sixth seed Angelo Amenta for third place and a guaranteed spot at the NCAA championships this evening. Pickett will also wrestle for third after a 3-2 loss to Jadean Bernstein of Navy in the sems and a 7-1 decision over Columbia's Shane Hughes in the wrestlebacks. Pickett will meet Army's Brian Harvey for third, though just the two two placewinners will earn bids to the NCAAs. Pickett will be a strong candidate for an at-large bid.

The Big Red's 10th placewinner was freshman Dylan Realbuto at 141, who nearly majored sixth-seeded Logan Everett of Army in the seventh place match, picking up a 12-5 win.
BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The Cornell wrestling team had a fantastic first day at the 2015 EIWA Championships at Lehigh on Friday afternoon, advancing all 10 wrestlers to day two, including eight in the championship semifinals. Despite six falls and 12 bonus wins, the Big Red still finds itself in a dogfight with the host school entering the final day while looking for an unprecedented ninth consecutive crown. Cornell enters day two with a slim five-point lead in Lehigh (93-88), with third-place Columbia more than 30 points in the rearview mirror.

The Big Red advanced top-seeded wrestlers Nahshon Garrett (125), Chris Villalonga (149), Brian Realbuto (157), Duke Pickett (174) and Gabe Dean (184) in the championship bracket, as well as second-seeded Dylan Palacio (165) and Jace Bennett (197) and fourth-seeded Mark Grey (133). Freshman Dylan Realbuto (141) and senior Jacob Aiken-Phillips (285) remain alive in the wrestlebacks and could still place as high as third.

Sophomore Dylan Palacio had an exciting first day, winning his first round match over Franklin & Marshall's Andy Francos in less than a minute before overcoming a 10-4 first period deficit in the quarterfinals to Harvard's Devon Gobbo, scoring 12 straight points before getting him in a cradle for the fall with just 18 seconds left in the match. He will look to avenge one of his two losses this season when he meets third-seeded Coleman Gracey of Army in the semifinals on Saturday morning.

Junior Nahshon Garreett, looking for his third straight EIWA title, earned a first period fall over Princeton's Ryan Cash in the opening round and a tech fall over eighth-seeded Zach Fuentes of Drexel. Garrett and Palacio weren't alone in the perfect first days.

Mark Grey earned a first period fall over Sacred Heart's Timothy Johnson before scratching out a 4-3 triumph over No. 5 seed Josh Terao in the quarters. His reward? A matchup with top-seeded Mason Beckman of Lehigh in tomorrow's semifinals.

Villalonga grinded out a pair of victories in typical fashion, besting Lehigh's Drew Longo 8-2 in the opener and moving onto the semifinals with a 3-1 triumph over Drexel's Matthew Cimato. Brian Realbuto also won a pair to advance in the championship bracket, topping Bucknell's Rustin Barrick 6-3 in the first round and eighth-seeded Brooks Martin of Penn by major decision in his second match of the day.

Pickett won a major decision over Jason Grimes of American after an exciting first period, then grinded out a 5-4 victory over Brown's Richard McDonald in the quarters.

Dean was his usual dominant self, earning a first period fall over Hofstra's Jermaine John for the second time this year before taking a 20-7 major over Navy's eighth-seeded Mike Woulfe to reach the semis.

Rounding out the eight wrestlers guaranteed a spot on the podium was Bennett, who pinned Hofstra's Mike Oxley in the second period and then dominated seventh-seeded Matt Idelson of Columbia 8-0 in the quarters.

Dylan Realbuto, a late add to the championship lineup, lost in the first round to second-seeded Jamel Hudson of Hofstra, but won an 8-2 decision over Franklin & Marshall's Robert Ruiz before advancing to Saturday with a medical forfeit in the consolation second round. Aiken-Phillips won his first match of the day before falling to second-seeded Joe Stolfi of Bucknell. He stayed alive with a 10-0 major decision over Navy's Colynn Cook in the consolation bracket.

Regardless of tomorrow's results, Brian Realbuto at 157 and Jace Bennett at 197 have already qualified for the 2015 NCAA championship as they can finish no lower than sixth. The 157-pound allocation from the NCAA is seven places deep and the 197-pound allocation is six athletes deep. A win tomorrow by Dylan Realbuto and Jacob Aiken-Phillips in the wrestlebacks would give Cornell 10 placewinners for the second consecutive season.

Advancing to the finals in every weight class guarantees an NCAA bid, so each of the eight semifinalists can punch their ticket to the big dance by winning their first matchup. All but 174 can advance to the NCAAs through the wrestlebacks. All 10 wrestlers have the opportunity to qualify for NCAAs on Saturday.
