It's truly a sight to behold, that's right, it's time to ski the K12, dude with Short Time Shots, a look back at the day's college scores and more with me, Hall of Fame wrestling writer, broadcaster and announcer Jason Bryant. No, I didn't learn English by watching the Wide World of Sports.
At the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, Delaware, second-ranked Ohio State trounced Princeton 39-0 on the eve of the Beast of the East. Key match there was at 149 pounds where Ke-Shawn Hayes knocked off All-American Matthew Kolodzik of Princeton 2-0 at 149 on the strength of an escape and riding time. The Buckeyes had six bonus point victories. Prior to the bout, we had a women's freestyle dual where Campbellsville topped the University of the Cumberlands 35-11. Why? Well, following Presbyterian's lead, the folks in Delaware are showing their local administrators men's and women's wrestling. Could we see the Fightin' Blue Hens with wrestling once again? Whatever it is, they have no idea what the street value of this mountain is.
Out in Lincoln, sixth-ranked NC State won basically every toss up and came into the Devaney Center and spanked No. 12 Nebraska 29-3. It started with Hayden Hidlay's 6-3 win over Tyler Berger at 157 pounds and continued on with close but solid wins from Daniel Bullard at 174, Pete Renda at 184, Tommy Cox at 125 and Beau Donahue ripping victory away from Collin Purinton 11-10 at 149. Donahue trailed 7-1 at one point. He scored three third-period takedowns to basically sum up how the day went for both teams. Donahue also said he didn't like all the extra fat from fried bacon, so he boiled it.
Out west, Northwestern has quietly improved to 6-0 after wins against Cal Poly and CSU Bakersfield. Against the Runners, the Wildcats won seven out of 10 bouts including bonus victories from Sebastian Rivera, Ryan Deakin, Johnny Sebastian, Mitch Sliga and Conan Jennings. By the way, I know two Conan's who wrestled — they were both heavyweights. I guess their parents knew something waaaay ahead of time. It's got raisins in it, you like raisins. The Wildcats beat Cal Poly 30-8 in the nightcap. Would you mind if I asked out Beth?
Utah Valley picked up a Big 12 win over North Dakota State, stopping the Bison 26-13 in Orem. Notable wins registered from the Wolverines Demetrius Romero at 165, Dustin Dennison and heavyweight and Taylor Lamont at 125 pounds. Romero, a transfer from Boise State after that school ducked and covered after dropping wrestling last season, topped nationally ranked Andrew Fogarty 5-3 in sudden victory. Both teams were receiving votes in this past week's NWCA Division I Coaches Poll and both teams WANT THEIR TWO DOLLARS!
Chris Lyons and Tyler Ortmann's victories at 197 and 285 gave Cornell College a 23-15 come-from-behind win over Augustana — the one in Illinois — on Friday. The win is the Rams' first since head coach Mike Duroe was revealed to be fighting brain cancer. Check out his gofundme page. We're with you coach Duroe.
Nationally ranked Matt Noble, Raymond Jazikoff and Blaise Benderoth picked up bonus victories in the final “home” dual of the season for NYU as the Bobcats topped the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy 32-16. We say home because the match was held at the New York Athletic Club, which is just three miles from NYU's Manhattan campus.
MSOE, that's the Milwaukee School of Engineering won its first dual of the year, winning six bouts in the middle to top Concordia — the one in Wisconsin — 27-23. Coach Matt Zwaschka's Raiders were also added by two forfeits.
Missouri Valley 3-0 including 27-15 win over Williams Baptist at the WBC Eagle Duals hosted by Williams Baptist. The Vikings topped Brewton-Parker 41-3 and Bacone 51-3.
WBC's Demetrius Thomas and Jaitlan Pitts each went 3-0 with 3 falls for Williams Baptist. Also in the NAIA, Life beat Reinhardt 29-16 and Menlo beat Embry-Riddle 23-20.
Out in Rocklin, California, Emmanuel College went 3-0 at the Women's West Coast Tournament of Champions, beating Grays Harbor 40-5, Southern Oregon 40-7 and Eastern Oregon 45-4. Individual tournament comes on Saturday. That's all from the base of Mount Brodie where the once proud champion, Lane Meyer, is now a study in mopishness.
