PITTSBURGH - P.J. Tasser and Anthony Zanetta captured individual titles at the Edinboro Open to highlight a weekend of open tournament wrestling for the Pitt wrestling team.

Tasser took home his first title of the season when he knocked off Andrew Church of Penn State by a 7-2 decision in the finals at 174 pounds. On his way to the finals, Tasser earned decisions over Mike Vollant of Kent State and Nick Mitchell of Edinboro and a 12-3 major decision over Alex Gong of Gannon.

Zanetta won his fifth open tournament of the season in convincing fashion using a fall and two tech falls to reach the finals of the 125 pound bracket where he took home a 5-4 decision over David White of Binghamton.
