No. 7 Cornell Heads to St. Louis for NCAA Tournament, Dean Tries for Third Title
March 13, 2017


Ivy League title? Check. EIWA championship? Check.

After winning its record 15th straight Ivy title and 11th consecutive conference title, Cornell wrestling has one more goal to check off its list this weekend in St. Louis — a trophy at NCAAs with a top-four finish.

Head coach Rob Koll is sticking to his early season aspirations, but acknowledged that cracking the top-four will be difficult.

With that goal in mind, the Red’s six NCAA qualifiers will head down to St. Louis for the three-day tournament against the best of the collegiate wrestling world. The contingent is primarily seniors — led by Mark Grey (133), Dylan Palacio (157), Brian Realbuto (174) and Gabe Dean (184), along with sophomores Brandon Womack (165) and Ben Honis (197).
