  4. MANCHESTER, Ind. – The Otterbein University wrestling team saw its inaugural season come to a close this weekend, concluding the 2016-17 calendar of action at the NCAA Division III Midwest Regional Tournament. The Cardinals ultimately finished 10th out of 16 schools, earning 48 points as a collective group and placing three student-athletes on the podium in Jake Vaughan (149 lbs.), Corbin Bunsold (184 lbs.) and Drew Kasper (197 lbs.) Each member of the trio finished in fifth place. Five Otterbein wrestlers survived Friday's action as Vaughan, Bunsold, Kasper, Jackson Lakso (125 lbs.) and Tyler Norris (133 lbs.) advanced to Saturday's placement matches. Vaughan and Bunsold each tallied a pair of pins to remain in their respective brackets. Lakso and Norris were unfortunately eliminated early on during the second day, leaving three Cardinals left standing. Vaughan eventually hit the podium by avenging a previous loss to Mason Deary of UW-Lacrosse. Deary beat Vaughan by major decision, 10-0, earlier in the tournament but Vaughan responded with a pin in the closing seconds of the first round during the fifth-place rematch edition. Bunsold recovered quickly from an opening-round loss by ripping off three-straight pins, and then ultimately posting an 11-0 major decision over Jason Lynch, competing for The University of Chicago, in the fifth-place showdown. Kasper, ranked 10th in the country at one point this year, began his tournament with a bye and then delivered an 11-4 triumph in his first time on the mat. He then unfortunately endured a pair of close decision losses before finishing his stay with a technical fall (18-2) over Michael Otomo of UW-Lacrosse. Otterbein finished 13-7 in dual meets during its resurrection season, as the Cardinals featured wrestling for the first time since the program was cut back in 1974. The group also turned in a 13th-place finish out of 34 teams at the Wheaton Invitational. http://otterbeincardinals.com/news/2017/2/25/wrestling-cardinals-finish-10th-place-three-wrestlers-at-midwest-regional.aspx
  5. OTTERBEIN VS MUSKINGUM The Otterbein wrestling team kicked off its Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) schedule with a victory Tuesday evening, topping Muskingum University by a score of 34-18 in front of another nice crowd. The Cardinals, making the program's return to OAC competition for the first time since 1974, improve their team record to 8-1 on the season after what was a five-week layoff for winter break. Muskingum (3-3, 0-1 OAC) took an early lead on a pin from 125-pounder Jordan Burkholder, but the Cardinals would respond with a quick pin by freshman Tyler Norris (133 lbs.) in the next match to even the contest. Otterbein, competing without starters Jake Vaughan and Drew Kasper (rest), would jump ahead on a forfeit and never look back from there, starting with a mammoth slam and first-round pin at 1:14 from freshman Willy Plaisir (157 lbs.) to ignite the Rike Center audience before intermission. "It felt great to get back on the mat and feel the fun environment in front of our home crowd," said Plaisir, who improved to 12-1 overall. "I stayed with the same approach as usual and was able to disrupt my opponent. I used his momentum when he tried to stand up at one point and hit the final takedown from there." Freshman Donny Didion nearly completed a nice comeback at 165 pounds before suffering a narrow defeat in the closing seconds, but the Cardinals quickly regrouped and posted a major decision, 10-1, from Braden Neuberger (174 lbs.) Neuberger's triumph was followed by a match-clinching pin from 184-pounder Corbin Bunsold at 2:53 of the opening round. It was Bunsold's second victory in as many tries against Muskingum's Anthony Cole-Young, whom he pinned in an almost-identical 2:56 last month at the Ohio Northern Invitational. "It can be rough coming back from holiday breaks because there's a tendency to put on weight or get rusty," said Bunsold, who now has a team-high 10 pins this season. "I settled back in tonight and stuffed a couple of his early double-leg attempts. I followed with a shrug and found a way on top to finish it." The Muskies collected their final points on a pin at 197 before Otterbein heavyweight Ras Lumpkins took his first victory of the year via forfeit. http://otterbeincardinals.com/news/2017/1/10/wrestling-downs-muskingum-34-18-in-return-to-oac-competition.aspx OTTERBEIN VS CASE WESTERN RESERVE The Cardinal wrestlers continued their strong start to the inaugural season Wednesday in the second night of a back-to-back, flying past host Case Western Reserve University by a score of 37-9. Otterbein claimed victories in eight of the 10 matches, including four falls, to run its season record to 9-1 heading into an off weekend. The team will return to action next Tuesday evening at Heidelberg University. Freshman Jackson Lakso opened the action against Case Western Reserve with a win at 125 pounds, jumping ahead early and never relinquishing the lead en route to an 11-5 triumph. He now stands 8-2 on the season. Classmate Tyler Norris (133 lbs.) followed by hanging on for a narrow 6-5 decision of his own, and sophomore Jake Vaughan ensued with a 9-1 major decision in his return to the mat at 141 pounds. It was his first outing since suffering an injury back in November. CWRU got on the scoreboard with a technical-fall victory at the 149-pound division, but Otterbein standout Willy Plaisir continued his dominance at 157 by pinning his opponent just 1:03 into the first round. He now holds a 13-1 record to go along with seven falls, tied for second-best on the team with Norris. Freshman Donny Didion got himself back into the win column after a narrow defeat against Muskingum, this time hanging on for a 4-2 triumph and giving the Cards some nice breathing room in the match, at 19-5. The Cardinals then added with a pair of consecutive pins to clinch the contest, getting falls from Braden Neuberger (174 lbs.) at 3:45 and then 184-pounder Corbin Bunsold just 24 seconds into his match. Bunsold now has eight first-round pins on the season and 11 overall. Otterbein fell victim at 197 pounds before finishing things off on a high note, watching heavyweight Ras Lumpkins tally a fall early in the third round (5:45) in the first mat appearance of his career. He won by forfeit against the Muskies. The Cardinals will face a stiff test next time out against Heidelberg as the Student Princes recently earned team championships at the Ohio Northern and Waynesburg Invitationals. http://otterbeincardinals.com/news/2017/1/11/wrestling-otterbein-tops-case-western-reserve-moves-to-9-1-in-duals.aspx
  6. DA, Ohio – The Otterbein wrestling program got back on the mat after a two-week Thanksgiving layoff Saturday afternoon, turning in some nice results at the Ohio Northern Polar Bear Invitational. The Cardinals finished sixth out of 11 teams with 98.5 points and earned two individual championships from a pair of standout freshmen, with 157-pounder Willy Plaisir and 197-pounder Drew Kasper both going undefeated en route to titles in their respective weight classes. Plaisir did not allow a match to go the distance the entire day by tallying a technical fall and three pins. He stamped the finishing touches on his division with a first-round pin in the championship contest over Dillon Steward of Adrian College. Kasper was also impressive, going 4-0 himself and outlasting Heidelberg's Gage Finegan in overtime to capture the crown. Both he and Plaisir now hold 11-1 records on the season. Otterbein, competing without a trio of starters in Jackson Lakso, Jake Vaughan and Donny Didion, still managed to secure some notable finishes from a handful of other Cards in the lineup. Freshman Gage Archer (285 lbs.) went a solid 4-1 on the day, with four pins, en route to a fifth-place finish while classmates Corbin Bunsold (185 lbs.) and Tyler Norris (133 lbs.) both walked away in sixth place. Bunsold tallied all three of his victories by pin and now has a team-high nine on the season. Additionally, freshmen Chris Martinez (197 lbs.) and Braden Neuberger (174 lbs.) both went 2-2 individually, with Martinez eventually going on to earn a seventh-place finish. Heidelberg won the team title with 166 points, 21 clear of second-place Tiffin University. Otterbein will be back in action next weekend, traveling to Thiel College for a dual match Friday evening at 7 p.m. The team will then be off for a month before kicking off Ohio Athletic Conference play against Muskingum University. http://www.otterbeincardinals.com/news/2016/12/3/wrestling-kasper-plaisir-win-titles-as-cards-compete-onu-invitational.aspx
  7. OLIVET, Mich. – The Otterbein wrestling team picked up a pair of victories Saturday afternoon at the Olivet College Duals, taking two of three matches and improving to 7-1 on the season. The Cardinals will regroup over Thanksgiving break and then be back in action come December 3, traveling to test their fate at the Ohio Northern Invitational. Otterbein got off to a hot start in Saturday's first match against Trine University, opening an early 12-0 lead and coasting to a lopsided 37-4 triumph. Freshman Jackson Lakso, the reigning Ohio Athletic Conference 'Wrestler of the Week,' tallied a pin at 125 pounds before classmate Tyler Norris (133 lbs.) followed with a fall of his own. Freshman Braden Neuberger (174 lbs.) also pinned his opponent while Drew Kasper (197 lbs.) posted a major decision. The Cards absorbed their first loss of the season in the middle contest, falling behind early against the host Comets and ultimately suffering a 30-9 defeat. Kasper earned a decision while freshman Corbin Bunsold, at 184 pounds, was able to secure a nice pin. Otterbein quickly regrouped to culminate the day with one more victory, flying past Henry Ford College by a score of 41-6 behind pins from Norris, Neuberger, Bunsold and Donny Didion (165 lbs.). Freshman Willy Plaisir notched a technical fall at 157 pounds while Lakso, Cortez Gainey (149 lbs.) and Gage Archer (285 lbs.) also hit the win column. Bunsold finished a perfect 3-0 on the day.

  9. http://www.otterbeincardinals.com/news/2016/11/9/otterbein-defeats-thomas-more-in-its-return-to-wrestling.aspx WESTERVILLE, Ohio – The Otterbein University wrestling program relaunched in exciting fashion Wednesday evening, defeating Thomas More College by a score of 36-10 in front of a packed Rike Center gymnasium. The Cardinals, returning to the mat for the first time since the program was cut following the 1974 season, received a loud ovation from the crowd as they took the mat for introductions. "This was definitely something special tonight," said Drew Kasper, 197 pounds. "I didn't realize how big it was until we walked out onto the mat and got that loud response. It was a pretty impressive environment that had my heart racing a bit." Freshman Jackson Lakso opened the action with a bang at 125 pounds, pinning his opponent in just 55 seconds to thrust Otterbein out to a 6-0 advantage. The Cards never trailed from that point, getting a pin from 141-pounder Jake Vaughan two matches later and flying to victory. "I'm so happy to be back competing and just thankful for this opportunity," said Vaughan, who wrestled for Ohio State from 2008-10 before spending almost six years away. "It's such a great feeling to return and I'm ready to submerge and dedicate myself to the grind again." Otterbein overcame a pair of early losses and then took the final six matches, beginning with a wild 54-second pin from freshman Willy Plaisir and then victories from Don Didion, Braden Neuberger, Corbin Bunsold, Kasper and Gage Archer. Neuberger trailed early on before coming from behind to secure a 9-4 decision, while Bunsold tallied a pin at 3:25 by wearing down his opponent early in the second round. Kasper overcame some adversity to outlast Thomas More's Avery Jones, 14-11, before 285-pounder Gage Archer finished off the night with a 12-5 triumph. "It was my first time competing on the mat in over a year," Kasper reflected. "I was so amped up and ready to go that it played a factor into me gassing early. I definitely had to make some adjustments and was glad to hold on." Thomas More was also making a long-awaited debut in its inaugural season after recently adding wrestling as a varsity sport as well. The Saints scored their 10 points with two technical-fall victories, but an inspired Otterbein group proved too strong in front of a home crowd littered with family, friends, media, students, staff members and campus administrators. "We have a goofy and big-hearted bunch," said Vaughan, 26. "A lot of people look at me as the veteran member, but this group has already inspired me a lot as well. They are bringing me back to those younger years and we all continue pushing one another." Otterbein will be back in action Sunday at the John Carroll University Duals, beginning with a 10 a.m. matchup against Alfred State.
