January 22, 2018


In front of a sold-out crowd at home, Cornell wrestling triumphed in a 23-14 statement win over Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA) rival No. 7 Lehigh. Six victories — three against ranked opponents and three earning bonus points — helped the Red move to 5-2 on the season.

Juniors Will Koll (149) and Jon Jay Chavez (165) showed their chops by unseating ranked wrestlers. Koll edged out No. 19 Cortlandt Schuyler in a 4-1 decision while Chavez executed a comfortable 12-6 win over No. 18 Gordon Wolf.

The pair of performances against a tough Lehigh (8-2) squad stood out for head coach Rob Koll.
