EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. – Three wrestlers from Ohio State, competing for the OSU Regional Training Center, claimed gold medals in freestyle at the Northeast Senior Regionals on Saturday.

Their individual champions included Nathan Tomasello (Parma, Ohio/OSU RTC) at 57 kg /125.5 lbs., Josh Demas, (Columbus, Ohio/OSU RTC) at 70 kg/154 lbs. and Jeffrey Jordan (St. Paris, Ohio/OSU RTC) at 74 kg/163 lbs.

Tomasello, a freshman who is redshirting, scored a 10-0 technical fall over Ben Willeford (NEORTC) in the finals. Tomasello is coming off a victory at the FILA Junior Nationals in Las Vegas two weeks ago.

Jordan, also a freshman on redshirt, scored a technical fall of his own, beating Judson Ziegler (Princeton Amateur Wrestling), 12-0 in the finals.

Demas, a redshirt freshman, edged Rutgers wrestler Anthony Ashnault (South Plainfield, N.J./South Plainfield), 7-6 in the finals.

The champions from the Northeast Regional qualify to compete in the U.S. World Team Trials later this season.

NCAA champion Cameron Simaz (Ithaca, N.Y./Titan Mercury Wrestling Club) won the title at 97 kg/213 lbs. with a pin over Abram Ayala (Fort Lauderdale), 2:09.

Hutter, the former Old Dominion star, won a six-athlete roundrobin with a 5-0 record. Trotman edged another nationally respected wrestler, Enock Francois (New Windsor, N.Y./West Point Wrestling Club), 2-1 in the finals.

Former Penn State and Iowa State star Nicholas Fanthorpe (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion Wrestling Club) scored a tech fall over Scott DelVecchio (South Plainfield, N.J./SKWC), 14-3 in the finals at 65 kg/143 lbs.
