December 1, 2012

For Immediate Release

Great Falls, Mont. – The 15th ranked Indiana Tech wrestling team was right back in action on Saturday at the Battle of the Rockies Open hosted by the University of Great Falls. The Warriors had seven grapplers place led by All-American sophomore Tanner Martin (Ft. Wayne, IN/Snider) who won the tournament at 174-lbs.

Martin, the 3rd ranked wrestler at 174-lbs, went 4-0 on his way to capturing first place. He pinned two straight opponents before earning a 12-5 decision over No. 15 Taylor Vaughn of Great Falls to advance to the championship match. There, Martin scored a takedown with two seconds remaining in regulation to tie the score before winning on a scramble with ten seconds left.

Including Friday’s dual meets, Martin posted a 7-0 record over both days with five pins.

Two other Tech wrestlers reached the championship bout in their division, Travis Barroquillo (Wolcottville, IN/Prairie Heights) and James Bennett (Bowden, GA/Darton).

At 133-lbs, Barroquillo, the top-ranked grappler in the weight class, won his first four matches, two by pinfall, to reach the title match. However, he would fall to Brenden Murphy of McKendree to take second place.

Bennett, the 16th ranked wrestler at 157-lbs, took down three straight foes by decision to move into the championship match, but suffered a narrow 6-4 loss to Colby Kloetzer of Northwest.

No. 15 Logan Rimmer (Temperance, MI/Bedford) earned a fourth place finish at 285-lbs while Darryl Grayson (Springfield, OH/Springfield), Taylor DeLong (Westfield, IN/Westfield), and No. 15 Dustin Boyd (Mishawaka, IN/Calumet) all took sixth.
