RESULTS | FORT WAYNE, Ind. â€“ For the second straight year, the sixth-ranked Indiana Tech wrestling team took seventh place at the NWCA National Duals Championships with a 39-14 win over No. 10 Missouri Valley in Expos Center III at the Allen Country War Memorial Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.
For the first time in three matches at the event, senior 125-pounder, Kristopher McKinley took a 6-5 loss to begin the dual, but top-ranked 133-pounder, Mitchell Pawlak, returned from yesterday's loss with a fall in 1:08 to take a 6-3 lead. A pair of forfeits by the Vikings sandwiched a tech fall by MVC to give Tech an 18-8 lead.
Eighth-ranked 165-pounder, Jacob Johnson, recorded his fourth fall in five matches for another six points and junior Tyler Goldman followed with a 9-2 decision to make it 27-8 Warriors. Sixth-ranked 184-pounder, Darryl Grayson, and sophomore 197-pounder, Brandon Sunday, both recorded first period falls to seal the win.
The Warriors return to action next weekend, Jan. 16-17, when they travel to Marshall, Mo. to compete in the Missouri Valley Invitational.
