Tech Competes at Lindenwood Open

November 19, 2011

For Immediate Release

Saint Charles, MO – The Indiana Tech wrestling team traveled to Saint Charles, Missouri on Saturday to compete at the Lindenwood University Open. The Warriors faced their toughest competition of the year as the event featured several top squads from the NCAA Division I, including #1 ranked University of Iowa.

Despite the strong competition, the Warriors would have wrestlers battling for 5th and 6th but only the top-4 placed this weekend. Freshmen Connor Hughes (Portage, MI/Northern) and Jordan Bosma (Hesperia, MI/Hesperia) both finished with matching 3-2 records to lead the Warriors.

In the 125 pound division, Hughes picked up back-to-back wins, one a technical fall and the other by major decision, before falling to Matt Gurule of the top-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes to fall into the consolation bracket. There, Hughes won one more match before dropping a 5-2 decision.

At 133 pounds, Bosma began the day with a pin at 1:44 before dropping a bout to Eric Wilson of Missouri. In the consolation bracket, Bosma pulled off two more pins, one at 0:53 and the other at 3:40 before being handed his second loss.

Freshman Travis Barroquillo (Wolcottville, IN/Prairie Heights) in the 133 pound division, and freshman Tanner Martin (Ft. Wayne, IN/Snider) and sophomore Dustin Boyd (Mishawaka, IN/Calumet) in the 184 pound division all grabbed a pair of victories on the day.

The Warriors return to action on Tuesday, November 22 when they travel to Tiffin, Ohio to take on the Tiffin University Dragons in their home opener. The match is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m.
