Rice (pictured above) placed for the second time in as many tournaments as a Mule; he came in eighth at Messiah earlier in the month. After getting pinned by the top seed at 184, Rice posted an 11-7 decision against a John Carroll wrestler to advance to the consolation final, where he was decisioned by the third seed.
At 197, Cerminara reached the consolation final by adding two pins - one in just 51 seconds and the other against the third seed - to one he recorded on the first day of the tournament. He went 4-2 at the tournament to run his season record to 16-8, with nine of his wins coming by fall.
Freshman Austin Sherman placed seventh at 133, closing out his tournament with a pin of the sixth seed. Junior Ben Peck recorded his second pin of the tournament in the 149-pound ninth-place bracket.
