December 04, 2017


You may not know his name or how to spell it yet, but Yianni Diakomihalis is making it hard for that to stay a reality just a few competitions into his young collegiate career.

Out west over the weekend, the true freshman took home first place in the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational, helping Cornell wrestling finish eighth in the team race. For the 10th straight year, the Red crowned at least one champion in the tournament and finished in the top eight.

Joining Diakomihalis on the podiums were juniors No. 18 Jon Jay Chavez (165) and heavyweight Jeramy Sweany, both claiming eighth place in their respective weight classes.
