Nick Lattanze Paces Eight Placers for Wrestling at F&M Open

LANCASTER, Pa. – Sophomore Nick Lattanze won the 133-pound weight class to lead a group of eight place-winners for Brown University wrestling at the David H. Lehman Franklin & Marshall Open on Saturday at the Alumni Sports and Fitness Center.

In their final regular season tournament of the year, the Bears advanced eight wrestlers to the semifinals, with four Bears coming in fourth, two placing third, one finishing second, and Lattanze winning at 133.

Lattanze (Norristown, Pa.) won five straight bouts to claim his weight class as the Bears claimed three of the top four spots at 133 pounds. Supporting him in the weight class, freshman Hunter Kosco (Canal Fulton, Ohio) came in third and senior Zeke Salvo (Baltimore, Md.) placed fourth.

Freshman Bryce Rogers (Orlando, Fla.) finished second at 165 pounds while junior Tucker Ziegler (Myersville, Md.) came in third at 197 pounds. Sophomore Jimmy Pawelski (Park Ridge, Ill.), freshman Nino Bastianelli (Marysville, Mich.), and junior Austin Pfarr (Marysville, Ohio) all came in fourth at 141, 184, and 197 respectively.

Lattanze topped opponents from Pittsburgh, Temple, Rutgers, Brown, and Appalachian State on his way to his first tournament title as a collegiate wrestler. Rogers claimed four straight bouts before dropping a decision in the first-place match at 165.

Kosco took three straight matches to reach the semifinals before eventually capturing the third-place match at 133. Ziegler totaled four victories en route to third place at 197.

Salvo placed for the second time this season as he came in third at 133 at the Bearcat Open in the season opener. Pawelski and Bastianelli each tallied three wins en route to fourth-place finishes at 141 and 184. Pfarr won twice to finish fourth at 197.

As a team, the Bears totaled six falls on the day.
