Jesse Dellavecchia's Finals Match

March 20, 2021
• Rider University’s Jesse Dellavecchia stunned top-seeded Ryan Deakin of Northwestern with a fall in 3:18 in their 157-pound semifinal of the NCAA Division I wrestling championships last night. Dellavecchia, a 2015 graduate of East Islip High School became the first Long Islander to reach the NCAA Division I wrestling finals since Shoreham-Wading River’s Jesse Jantzen won the 2004 title at 149 pounds. Dellavecchia is 11-0 on the season. He won four matches in the tournament to advance to Saturday’s final at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis. The senior pinned Deakin with a half nelson after a scramble mid-way through the second period. --Andy Slawson

SHARKS WIN! LIU Wrestling Takes First Dual of the Season with 24-16 Win over SHU
This Week’s Ncaa Div. I Schedule Listed By Conference, Plus Ranked Duals And Other Notes

Bill Faxon Interview with Lou Giani January 2006 - Just heard about Lou Giani's passing. I don't want to overstate my relationship with him, but I had the opportunity to chat wrestling with Lou on a few occasions courtesy of my Huntington friends like Tom Giaramita and Timmy Hawkrigg. Anyway, for those of you who didn't know Coach Giani I wanted to share this interview that I did with him for the LIWA over a decade ago. It gives you some really good insight to who he was, why he loved wrestling and what he valued. The parts that impressed me the most where how much joy he got out of seeing his former wrestlers go on to become successful coaches ( he was beaming when I mentioned Picozzi) and how he resisted the urge to talk about "kids these days" and in fact went the opposite route. And yes, the Jon Jones he is talking about IS that Jon Jones but back before anyone of us know what he would become.

I hope you enjoy the interview with Coach and if you didn't know him I hope it gives you a little insight into him and what he meant to our LI wrestling community. Condolences to his family and friends.
