Ypsilanti, MI – The Indiana Tech wrestling team was back in action on Saturday at the 20th annual Eastern Michigan University Open. The meet featured over 500 wrestlers from across the nation as well as NCAA Divisions I, II, and III.

In the freshman/sophomore division of the meet, freshmen Andre Sanders (Farmington Hills, MI/Harrison) and Travis Barroquillo (Wolcottville, IN/Prairie Heights) and sophomore Dustin Boyd (Mishawaka, IN/Calumet College of St. Joe) became the first three members of the Warriors wrestling program to qualify for the NAIA National Championships.

Sanders finished in 5th place in the 125 lbs. division with a 5-2 record, including a 6-0 decision in the final bout.
