Saachi becomes winningest coach in Rutgers history with victory over F&M



Scarlet Knights Post Second-Straight EIWA Win with 36-13 Victory Against Diplomats

Lancaster, Pa. (January 6, 2007) - Rutgers head wrestling coach John Sacchi recorded his 159th career win at the helm of the Scarlet Knights program, moving to the top of the all-time victory list as RU defeated Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA) rival Franklin & Marshall, 36-13 on Saturday afternoon. With the win, Rutgers moves to 2-2 on the season, including a 2-0 mark in the EIWA.

Before the victory, Sacchi was tied with the late former coach Deane Oliver. Oliver led Rutgers to a 158-147-9 record in 21 years of coaching (1969-1990) and had a winning percentage of .511. Sacchi's current record of 159-98-5 moves him to the top spot in program history with a winning percentage of .616.

The Scarlet Knights got a pin from Mike D'Amico (Kenilworth, N.J.) at heavyweight as the sophomore turned the Diplomats' Nico Somers and earned the fall at the 5:07 mark in the match. Jack Barrett (Metuchen, N.J.) and Lamar Brown (Red Bank, N.J.) posted decision wins at 149 and 197 pounds, respectively. Barrett recorded a 12-7 win over Franklin & Marshall's Steve Gregory, while Brown defeated Sean Logue, 10-3. Due to injuries, the Diplomats forfeited matches at the 125, 133, 174 and 184-pound weight classes.
