Pitt heavyweight places sixth

03/17/2009 -

For the second year in a row, the University of Pittsburgh's heavyweight took sixth in the nation.
Chris DeSanctis, a junior, became Pitt's first NCWA All-American with a sixth-place finish in his program's inaugural NCWA season. At last weekend's NCWA Championships, DeSanctis repeated in sixth after defaulting his final match due to a bruised knee he suffered in the championship semifinals against The Apprentice School's Cecil Lee.
Lee, the eventual national champion, won the match 1-0.
The Panthers finished 39th in the 84-team field with qualifiers DeSanctis, senior Dave Crown (133) and Derrick Jusczak (157). Jusczak did not wrestle due to an injury.
