Las Vegas is on everyone’s mind who follows the world of Division I wrestling and that also means me. There’s a bunch of Vegas-related content in the newsletter today, so again, you can find out how to get that daily at the end of the show. I was on the mic Thursday here in the Twin Cities – more on that in a bit, this is Short Time Shots, a look at the day’s results in and around college wrestling. Right now, if you hear any banging around, it’s because I’m getting a new furnace installed this morning. Yup. Thankfully before it his absolute zero here this winter. Our installer used to wrestle, too. It’s Short Time Shots, a look back at the day’s college wrestling scores and more, I’m Jason Bryant.

As to the aforementioned Minnesota match, Division III’s top-ranked team, Augsburg, blanked No. 25 Loras 46-0 at Si Melby Hall. Augsburg won four matchups between ranked wrestlers, including returning national champion Sam Stuhl earning an 11-2 major decision over No. 13 Jalen Schropp at 141 pounds. Top-ranked heavyweight Tyler Kim and 184-pounder Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann picked big bonus victories – Kim with the fall and BSO (his name is too long to keep repeating) with the tech.
Other scores around Division III saw Carthage beat Elmhurst 29-15, and Central, that’s it, just Central, pushed past Augustana (Ill.) 36-9. UW-Stevens Point trounced UW-Oshkoh (B’Gosh) 40-18. Augustana did beat Simpson (Iowa)

Both of Kutztown’s ranked wrestlers – No. 11 Dalton Gimbor at 165 and third-ranked Matthew Weinberg at 184 – won. Gimbor beat Kane Kettering while Weinberg picked up a forfeit. I hate forfeit.
