Derrick Longo: Wrestling

Derrick Longo
Derrick Longo of the Springfield College wrestling team has been named this week's Male Maroon Athlete of the Week. As a team, SC went 3-1 over the week in dual meets against some very good competition.

As an individual, the sophomore 165-pounder from Ardsley, N.Y. finished a perfect 4-0.

In a 19-15 victory at Williams last Wednesday (Jan. 19), Longo pinned Rob Brackup in 4:11 in what proved to be the pivotal bout of the match.

Then in the Team Dual Tournament at Bridgewater State on Sunday, a tourney in which SC finished third as a team, Longo first defeated Brendan Guarino, 6-2, of RIC, helping SC defeat RIC, 22-16. The undeclared major then defeated James Matlack of Plymouth State, 21-8, although SC lost to PSU as a team, 24-16. Longo then finished with an important 3-2 victory over Kyle Martin of Williams, helping the Pride defeat the Ephs, 21-19, for third place..
