Speedway Student-Athletes of the Week
In front of a crowd of 17,385, J Jaggers, a senior on the wrestling team, secured his place in Buckeye wrestling history, becoming just the third student-athlete to win two national titles. Jaggers won his second-consecutive crown in the 141-pound division at the 2009 NCAA Wrestling Championships March 21 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo.
Jaggers captured his second-consecutive title at 141 pounds, downing No. 8 Ryan Williams of Old Dominion, 10-4. Jaggers advanced to the title bout after recording pins in both the quarterfinals and semifinals. He ends his senior campaign with a 28-7 ledger and completes his career with a 108-33 record.
Reece Humphrey, the wrestling team’s No. 2 seed at the NCAA championships, advanced to the title round at 133-pounds but fell, 5-4, to No. 1 Franklin Gomez of Michigan State. The junior from Indianapolis, Ind., received his first All-America honor with the second-place finish and ended his junior campaign with a 30-4 record.
In his run to the finals, Humphrey scored a 15-6 major decision in the quarterfinals vs. conference-rival Jake Strayer of Penn State and rode his way into his first NCAA finals collecting two minutes of riding time to secure a 1-0 decision over Jayson Ness of Minnesota in the semifinals.
Junior Mike Pucillo made his run to defend his 2008 184-pound national title all the way to the final bout of the 2009 NCAA Wrestling Championships, but fell, 6-3, to Northwestern’s No. 1-seed and 2007 NCAA champion, Jake Herbert. Pucillo closed within one during the match but could not deliver Herbert (33-0) his first loss of the season.
Pucillo made it so that Ohio State had three moving into the title round knocking off No. 7 Doug Umbehauer of Rider, 3-2, with a late third-period takedown in the semifinals and earning a 3-1 decision over No. 11 Louis Caputo of Harvard in the quarterfinals.

No. 16 Baseball (17-3)
Head coach: Bob Todd
Alex Wimmers pitched his second-consecutive game, going the distance, striking out 14 and not walking a batter, and Ohio State scored twice in the seventh inning for a 2-0 win over Indiana at Chain of Lakes Field March 20. The game did not feature an extra base hit.
The breakthrough run came in the bottom of the seventh. Dan Burkhart and Cory Rupert led off with singles and when Ryan Dew hit a screamer the second baseman could not handle, Burkhart scored from second and Rupert moved to third. Michael Arp ripped a single to right to score Rupert and the Buckeyes had a 2-0 lead.
Remaining in Florida for spring break, Ohio State defeated Army twice March 21, 3-1 and 8-4.
A five-run third inning broke a 3-all tie in the nightcap and gave the Buckeyes a comfortable, five-run cushion, 8-3. The big inning included four hits and two Cadet errors. Michael Stephens and Dew each singled and scored in the inning and Rupert walked and scored. All three scored on the big hit of the inning: Matt Streng’s bases-loaded triple, his third of the year, down the right field line.
A combined two-hitter from Dean Wolosiansky and Drew Rucinski, coupled with just enough run support, enabled the Buckeyes to win game one against Army, 3-1. Ohio State starter Wolosiansky (3-1) went 4.1 innings and allowed just one hit and one run before exiting in the fifth. Rucinski came on in relief and pitched the final 2.2 innings without allowing a run to get his second save of the season.
The Buckeyes then won their ninth-consecutive game in Florida when they beat Hartford, 9-8, March 22. Starting pitcher Ross Oltorik, a true freshman, pitched a career-long 5.0 innings, allowing just one run off six hits to record his first collegiate win against no losses. He struck out a career-best five batters and walked three in his best performance to date as a Buckeye.
Zach Hurley led off the game with a triple and he scored on a groundout. Stephens followed with a single and scored on Justin Miller’s single for a quick, 2-0 lead. Consecutive doubles by Dew and Arp plated another run for a 3-1 lead after the Buckeyes’ second, and then Ohio State scored four times in the seventh off four hits and two Hartford errors. Hurley, Cory Kovanda, Stephens and Miller all singled and scored runs off Hartford reliever Matt Govoni. Three consecutive two-out doubles in the eighth – by Kovanda, Chris Griffin and Miller – increased the lead to 9-1.
The team then had its nine-game winning streaked snapped, 4-1, March 23 against Rollins College. Ohio State finishes its spring break trip with a game vs. No. 6 Miami in Miami, Fla., March 24.
Wimmers was named the Big Ten Conference Pitcher of the Week for the second-consecutive time March 23 after picking up a complete-game win over Indiana in a nonconference matchup on March 20.
The sophomore from Cincinnati recorded 14 strikeouts, allowing no walks and just five singles to improve his season record to 4-0. The right-hander allowed the Hoosiers to hit just .161 in the outing, lowering his opponents’ batting average to .219 on the year, which ranks fifth in the Big Ten. With the outing, Wimmers’ ERA improved to 1.85, which is third in the conference, while his Big Ten-leading strikeouts total increased to 47.

Head coach: Miles Avery
A crowd of 500-plus watched six members of the men’s gymnastics team set career highs in St. John Arena March 21 as the squad celebrated senior night with a team total of 349.7.

Top performances came from senior Jake Bateman, notching a career and program-high 15.3 on high bar and sophomore Brandon Wynn, accomplishing the same feat on rings with a 16.1. A native of Voorhees, N.J., Wynn’s mark is a best by an NCAA competitor this season. No Division I NCAA gymnast has produced a mark above a 16.0 in 2009.
Bateman, who scored a season-high and second-place 88.65 in the all-around, was joined by his four teammates in the high bar effort, as all Buckeye competitors hit career marks on the apparatus, including juniors Tai Lee with a 15.1 and Justin Myers with a 15.0.
