The College Report: Jesse Harrington of New Providence Earns All-America Honors on the Mat

Delaware Valley wrestler Jesse Harrington from New Providence

Delaware Valley's Jesse Harrington (New Providence, Soph.) earned All-America honors with his fifth-place finish in the 157-pound bracket at the NCAA Division 3 Wrestling Championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Saturday. Harrington, a graduate of Bound Brook High School, was seeded first in his weight class and won his first two matches, defeating Coe's Dale Handley, 6-3, and NYU's Matt Magill, 3-1. That landed him in the semifinal round, where a takedown by Ohio Northern's Luke Miller with just five seconds on the clock afforded Miller the victory, 4-3. Moving to the third-place bracket, Harrington lost to Wisconsin-Platteville's Jesse Milks, 6-4. He recovered, however, to claim fifth place by earning a 9-4 decision over Wartburg's Adam Weber. Harrington finished the season winning 25 of 31 matches.

Duke's Peter Terrezza (New Providence, Soph.) claimed fourth place in the 125-pound bracket at the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships in Raleigh, N.C. on Saturday. Terrezza, out of New Providence High, won his first-round match with a pin of North Carolina State's Mike Moreno at 4:51. Terrezza then was taken down for good at the 6:31 mark in his second-round match against eventual champion Jarrod Garnett of Virginia Tech. He was victorious in his first consolation round bout, earning a 10-6 decision over North Carolina's Brian Bokoski. Terrezza had to settle for fourth place when he lost, 4-1, to Maryland's James Knox.

Franklin & Marshall's Matt Fullowan (Berkeley Heights, Soph.) won his first-round match at the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association tournament at Lehigh on Saturday, earning a 4-2 decision over Michael Billings of Navy. Fullowan, a Gov. Livingston High grad, was eliminated from championship consideration in the next round, when he lost, 10-2, to Penn's Scott Giffin. Slotted then in the 174-pound consolation bracket, Fullowan suffered a 7-3 loss to Columbia's Stephen West.


After losing six of seven matches, Stevens Tech has turned things around with a five-match winning streak. The Ducks' Brandt Grobeis (Livingston, Jr.) had 54 assists in Friday's 3-1 (31-29, 30-27, 23-30, 30-23) win over Harvard in Hoboken. The Livingston High alum also was credited with seven digs, four aces and three kills. Stevens then traveled to Purchase, N.Y. for a Saturday doubleheader and left with 3-0 victories over SUNY-Purchase (30-21, 30-25, 30-15) and Sage (30-18, 30-13, 30-17). Grobeis managed 13 assists while playing just one set of the Purchase victory. He then went two sets in the nightcap against Sage, registering 25 assists, seven digs, two kills and two aces. Stevens is now 13-8 on the season.


Minnesota's Tom O'Brien (Westfield, Sr.) competed in three of six events in Saturday's tri-meet with Penn State and Temple in State College, Pennsylvania. O'Brien, a Westfield High grad, had his best showing in the rings, where he scored 14.500, which was good for fourth place in the 17-man field. He placed sixth in the pommel horse, with a 13.500 score, and was seventh in the parallel bars, where the judges awarded him 14.050 points. Penn State earned a narrow victory over the Gophers, 350.150-348.250.

Stanford's Jordan Nolff (Millburn, Soph.) scored 15.1 in the rings, his best number of the evening, which was tops on the Cardinals and third best of the 18 gymnasts who gave the event a shot in a tri-meet with Air Force and Illinois-Chicago in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Friday. Nolff, a Millburn High product, also competed in the pommel, where he scored 14.1 (tied for sixth), and the floor exercise, in which the judges awarded him 13.9 (sixth best). Stanford, which scored 356.700, topped Air Force (338.350) and Illinois-Chicago (336.200).


Lehigh and Penn flew west to Denver for games against Air Force and the University of Denver this past weekend. Brian Bienemann (Chatham, Sr.) was the offensive hero for Lehigh in Saturday's 14-13 win over Air Force. Brian Wilson (Summit, Jr.) stopped 12 shots for Air Force. That same day, Penn knocked off Denver, 11-7. Morgan Griff (Summit, Jr.) assisted on one of the Quakers' goals. Zander Buteux (Madison, Soph.) came up with seven stops in goal for Denver. Sunday's Lehigh-Denver contest went to the Coloradans, 8-7. Bienemann scored two goals for Lehigh (2-3), while Buteux came up with nine saves for Denver (2-3). Penn defeated Air Force, 8-7, on Sunday, with Griff scoring a goal for the winning Quakers (2-2). Wilson had a career-high 13 saves for Air Force (0-3).

Don’t Make These Three Mistakes About Social Security

Social Security has been around for decades and it’s not about to disappear. Why? Social Security is not an entitlement ("gift") that can be taken away - it’s a forced savings scheme that Americans pay into in their working years in order to secure a pension for life. Ideally, Social Security should not be your sole source of income in retirement but even comfortable ...
