Injuries Hurt Cavaliers in Loss to Navy
Harshaw wins second bout of competition with pin
HAMPTON, Va--The Virginia Cavaliers, decimated by injuries, fell to the Naval Academy today at the Virginia Duals Wrestling meet in Hampton, Va. Jim Harshaw (Seneca Valley/Cranberry Township, PA) won again for the Cavaliers, this time with a pin of Navy's Ben Duelley 1:58 into the match.
Virginia's Steve Garland (Middletown, NY/Middletown) started the Cavaliers off with a 10-3 decision at 118 pounds. Losses by Dave Takeseraas (Seaford, NY/Seaford)and Jason Mutarelli (Catasauqua/N. Catasauqua, Pa.) put the Cavaliers down 3-6, but John Pozniak (State College, PA/State College)'s win over Jeremy Hite evened the score at 6-6. Harshaw's pin gave the Cavaliers a 12-6 lead, but Navy won the next four matches to take an insurmountable 19-12 lead.
Four of the Cavaliers starters did not compete tonight due to various injuries, but Coach Lenny Bernstein predicts that they will be healthy for the next competition, the Virginia State Meet next weekend at James Madison
University in Harrisonburg, Va. The competition begins Friday, January 16 and continues Saturday, January 17. The Cavaliers are the defending state champions.
