Mat Notes:

   The lone returning NCAA champion that didn't advanced to the quarterfinal round was Ohio State's Myles Martin (28-8) who dropped an action-packed 14-9 decision to Emery Parker (Illinois) at 184 pounds. New York natives that advanced to the quarterfinals were Nick Piccininni (24-6) of Okla State at 125, Buffalo's Bryan Lantry (22-5) at 133 and Cornell teammates Dylan Palacio (10-1) and Brian Realbuto (25-1) who posted two tech falls at 174. Palacio (Long Beach HS), a returning All-American faces second-seeded Michael Kemmerer (29-2) of Iowa in a quarterfinal battle at 157 pounds. Of the 330 wrestlers in the NCAA field there are still ten unbeatens: Gilman, Tomasello, Heil, Retherford, Nolf, Martinez, Valencia, Dean, Cox and Snyder. Their are eight sets of brothers at the 2017 NCAA meet, including the Valencias out of California and now Arizona State: Anthony at 165 and top-seeded Zahid (35-0) at 174 pounds. The attendance for each session on Day One was 18,157 true fans.
