Tornado Take Down Ohio Valley, 28-15

King Men's Wrestling improved to 2-1 in dual meet competition with its 28-15 victory over the Ohio Valley University Fighting Scots on Tuesday night.

VIENNA, W.Va. – King Men's Wrestling improved to 2-1 in dual meet competition with its 28-15 victory over the Ohio Valley University Fighting Scots on Tuesday night. They will take on regional foe Limestone College in their next action on Jan. 22.

King was spotted a quick 6-0 lead through a forfeit at 125. Sophomore Colin Crume (Mishawaka, Ind./UW-Parkside) helped the Tornado run out to a 9-0 lead after defeating Josue Rodriguez by decision, 10-3.  The Scots drew within three points with a win by fall before Nic Stella (Sweet Home, N.Y.) helped distance King by six with a tight 3-1 win over Tyler Green.

The Scots won the next bout at 157 when Jeremy Miller lost a close 3-2 bout with Tyler George, bringing Ohio Valley within three points once again. King then began a run of three straight victories to seal the meet win. John Austin Jones (165 lbs.) won by default followed by Dyvon Passmore (Miami, Fla.) building King's lead to 13 with a major decision win (16-7) over Kobina Henriques. Though not mathematically beaten, OVU's forfeit at 184 pounds gave Brandon Tressler and the Tornado wins despite the Scots earning victories in the last two bouts of the day.  

With the win, the Tornado improve to 2-1 in dual meet competition this season with six more duals remaining this season. Their next dual will be held on Jan. 22 at Limestone College versus the Saints. King will then host their next three dual meets over a four-day span, beginning on Jan. 27 against Findlay (Ohio).
