Oneonta women run into NCAAs


Herkimer Invite

Delhi’s men and women cruised to victories Saturday during the Herkimer County Community College Invite.

Matt Salle set a Mountain Valley Conference record for six dives on the 1-meter board with 311.78 points, shattering his program-best mark of 285.75 set in 2012 to lead the Broncos’ men to 385 team points. Jamestown CC finished second in the five-team field at 207 points.

Delhi’s women set two MVC records and a program record en route to 274 points for the top spot. Jamestown placed second at 259.

Keannie Rodriguez set a Delhi record in the 1,000 free with a winning time of 12:04.78 and anchored the 200 medley and 200 free relay teams to conference records. She followed Jacquelin Graziano, Vanessa Brown and Lily McEnaney for a 200 medley relay win in 2:06.81, beating the 2010 MVC mark of 2:09.10 set by Herkimer. The same foursome set an MVC record in the 200 free relay, winning in 1:52.58 to beat the 2012 MVC record set by the Broncos. McEnaney helped Mackenzie Oliver, Cynthia Burhans and Megan Cusack to the 2012 record of 1:54.75.

Cobleskill women split

Alex Steelman won the 1-meter dive with 397.15 points Saturday, marking Cobleskill’s lone victory in a tri-meet at home. The Fighting Tigers beat Cedar Crest, 145-36, but lost to William Smith, 146-82.

Cobleskill (4-2) will compete in the SUNY Delhi Fall Invite this Saturday.


O-State splits at home

Oneonta State senior Ben Mikac earned his 101st college victory Saturday, when the Red Dragons went 1-1 at home during the North East Duals.

Oneonta followed a 49-3 rout of Alfred State with a 22-18 loss to Rhode Island College. Mikac’s 16-4 major decision over Alfred State’s Patrick DaFoe at 141 pounds marked his 100th triumph. He also downed RIC’s Ricondo Cole, 3-1, at the same weight.

Mikac is the fifth O-State wrestler to reach the 100-victory milestone and the first since Delhi graduate Josh Wake did it in 2010.

Teammates Chad Obzud and Shaun Gillen earned two victories apiece as well.

Obzud had a 19-second pin of Alfred State’s Matthew Sowers at 285 pounds and ended his 197-pound match against RIC’s John Georges with a pin in 3:40.

Gillen pinned Alfred’s Codie Nichols (Unatego) in 5:17 at 165 pounds, then had an 8-6 decision over RIC’s Josh Harrison.
