College Notebook: USM wrestling is on a roll
The Huskies have two wrestlers competing in the NCAA Division III championships.

The University of Southern Maine’s wrestling program enjoyed its greatest success this winter, setting a record for most dual-meet wins (16) and sending two wrestlers to the upcoming NCAA Division III championships. Huskies Coach Joe Pistone said the seeds of that success were planted a long time ago. “A lot of it was our preparation in the summer, with lifting and running and wrestling,” said Pistone, who’s been head of the program since 2003. “We had some pretty strong goals and objectives at the end of last season that carried over.” He noted the Huskies also had a strong recruiting class that brought talent and attitude to the program. “Every objective we made, short-term and long-term, was met,” said Pistone. “It’s a very exciting time for the USM Huskies.” Senior Jonathan Deupree of Ozona, Florida, and sophomore Daniel Del Gallo of Gardiner can make it even more exciting. The two will compete in the NCAA championships Friday and Saturday at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Deupree defended his Division III Northeast Regional title at 184 pounds earlier this month, and Del Gallo finished second at 149 pounds...
