On Saturday, the Bearcats spent the afternoon working out and practicing for Sunday's dual.
On Sunday, we faced American University in an EIWA conference match at Bender Arena. It was a close dual, but unfortunately we were not able to make a winning comeback. Our final match score was 15-20. Caruana (141), Zupan (165), Schneider (174), and Deuel (HWT) all earned wins, but our team record dropped 6-10 overall and 4-4 in the EIWA.
Caruana (141) got BU on the board, winning 6-3 against Michael Sprague (pictured to the right). Caruana scored two takedowns, an escape, and an extra point for riding time to secure the win.
At 165, Zupan had an exciting 11-2 major decision win against Brad Mutchnik. Zupan is a freshman and scored his 18th victory of the season. At 174, Schneider picked up a 9-1 major decision over Nick Carey and he earned his 17th win of the year. Deuel also picked up a major decision at HWT, beating Chris McDermand 9-0. Deuel improved his record to 20-4 overall with this win.
Our next home dual is this FRIDAY (2/13) in the West Gym. We will be wrestling Buffalo at 7 PM. See you there!
