Cornell's Ben Darmstadt is for real!

5 Takeaways from South Beach

1) Ben Darmstadt (Cornell) is GOOD 
The Cornell freshman 197lber had a breakout showing this weekend in South Beach.  Darmstadt used a crazy good top game to knock off #2 Willie Miklus (Missouri) by Major Decision 9-0, pinned top 20 Bobby Steveson (Minnesota), and scored a 13-6 win over Kent State and a major decision over North Dakota State.  His fall over Steveson was clutch as it put the Big Red back in business with a chance to win the dual in the last match, which they did, over the top 15 ranked Gophers.

Stay tuned for more from this guy and check out his wins over Steveson and Miklus in our video section of this article.

2) Markus Scheidel (Columbia) is back
The Senior 3x NCAA Qualifier returned with his first varsity action of the season and started with a bang, knocking off #6 ranked BJ Clagon of Rider in the first round.  Scheidel would go 3-1 on the weekend with another good win over Casey Sparkman of Kent State, but fell 3-1 in overtime to top 25 ranked Jake Short of Minnesota.  A great sign for the Lions to have this guy back in the lineup.

3) Yianni (Cornell) is for real, but still human
Big Red freshman Yianni Diakomihais has lived up to the hype surrounding him entering this year, as he has surged to #1 in the national rankings.  With a target on his back, he delivered on Friday in South Beach, routing returning all-american Tommy Thorn of Minnesota 18-4.  The freshman showed that he is human on Saturday, however, dropping a late lead 

4) Max Dean (Cornell) off to Gabe-like start
With his 4-0 showing in South Beach, Max Dean's off to a 18-2 start in his freshman campaign.  Taking over the 184lb spot for his brother Gabe, who graduated last year after a 4x AA and 2x NCAA title career, Max is off to a similar freshman breakout as Gabe experienced, who had 1 loss going into the New Year his rookie season for the Big Red.

5) Garrett Ryan (Columbia) keeps rolling
Ryan continues to anchor the Columbia lineup and the nationally ranked big man went 4-0 in South Beach to improve to 15-3 on the year heading into the New Year.
