College Wrestling: Locals do well at Northeast Duals

All-American Nick Gwiazdowski won both of his matches, and both Zach Diekel and Brendan Goldup went 2-1 to highlight the results of Capital Region athletes at Saturday’s Journeymen/ASICS Northeast Duals, held at Hudson Valley Community College.

Gwiazdowski, a redshirt soph­omore competing at heavyweight, helped North Carolina State go 2-1 in duals. The two-time state champion from Duanesburg High sat out the match with Buffalo, then scored a decision and a pin.

Gwiazdowski beat Tyler Deuel, 14-6, as the Wolfpack, coached by Niskayuna High state champ Pat Popolizio, beat Binghamton.

Gwiazdowski finished eighth at the 2012 NCAA Championships as a true freshman, coached by Pop­olizio, while both were at Binghamton.

Popolizio left the Bearcats for the N.C. State coaching position later that year, and Gwiazdowski followed, redshirting the 2012-13 season.

Gwiazdowski finished his day with a third-period pin of Chris­topher Lopez in the Wolfpack’s loss to Illinois.

Ballston Spa graduate Billy Cook took Gwiazdowski’s spot against Buffalo, and beat James Benjamin, 3-2, in his only match of the day.

Diekel. a redshirt freshman, recorded two wins at 184 pounds, one a major decision, to help Lehigh go 3-0.

The Whitehall grad beat Austin Severn of Central Michigan, 6-2; lost to James Suvak of Virginia, 5-4; and finished with a 19-9 win over Columbia’s Troy Hembury.

Former Shenendehowa wrestlers Austin Meys and Jimmy Carrucci did not get into a match for Lehigh.

Goldup, a Schuylerville native and LaSalle Institute grad, now a freshman 149-pounder at Sacred Heart, beat Ryan Hunsberger of George Mason, 8-3, and pinned Buffalo’s Ryan Todora before dropping a 5-3 decision to Scott Mattingly of Central Michigan.

Columbia sophomore Connor Sutton, another LaSalle grad, went 1-2 at 149. He beat Michigan State’s Matt Pasqualini, 5-3, then lost by technical fall to Justin Archer of Clarion and closed his day with a 9-4 loss to Lehigh’s Mitch Minotti.

Binghamton freshman Nick Kelley, a 2013 state champ for Shenendehowa, went 0-3 at 141 in his first varsity competition.
