CEDAR RAPIDS, IA - Johns Hopkins senior 141-pounder Paul Marcellocontinued his run at the NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships on Friday evening as he topped fourth-seeded Jake Fredricksen of Wisconsin Whitewater, 5-3, in the quarterfinals to move into Saturday's seminfinal round. Marcello is the first Johns Hopkins wrestler ever to advance to the semifinals.

Trailing 1-0 entering the third period and starting from the bottom position, Marcello needed less than 20 seconds to escape and scored a quick takedown to build a 3-1 lead.

Fredricksen earned an escape of his own to narrow the deficit to 3-2 with less than a minute remaining. After a restart with 33 seconds remaining, Marcello got in deep on a single-leg takedown and scored what proved to be the winning points to go up 5-2. Fredrickson added a late escape but Marcello held him off to secure the win and advance. The win was also the 75th of Marcello's career.

Marcello will meet top-seeded Joe Grippi of Springfield (MA) in the semifinals with a trip to the national championship match on the line. This will be the second time this season the two have met as Grippi grabbed a 10-7 decision against Marcello earlier this season in the championship match of the Doug Parker Invitational.

Earlier in the day Marcello had opened the tournament with a second-period pin against Wisconsin Platteville's Tyler Henken.

Sophomore 125 pounder Paul Bewaksaw his season come to an end in the consolation bracket Friday night. Bewak built an early 7-3 lead against Isaac Balsiger of Wisconsin La Crosse, but Balsiger fought back to tie the match late and then used a four-point move in the closing seconds to turn a 10-9 deficit into a 13-10 victory. Bewak ends the season with a 34-6 record - the 34 wins are a school record.

Wrestling will begin at noon (EST) on Saturday with the semifinals and additional consolation rounds. The championship matches are scheduled to begin at 6 pm. Follow all the action with live video and live stats links below:
