(Neb.)-Chadron State trumps Highlands
By Alex Helmbrecht, CSC Sports Information
CHADRON - For the second consecutive night the Chadron State College wrestling team cruised to a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference dual victory. The Eagles won seven matches and defeated New Mexico Highlands 30-9 in front of a large crowd Thursday at the Nelson Physical Activity Center.
On Wednesday, Chadron State, now 5-3 overall and 2-0 in the conference, upended CSU-Pueblo 28-6.
"This group of guys is special and they believe in what we're doing and they want to succeed," Chadron State head coach Brett Hunter said. "It was a great win and most of all, a great home atmosphere to wrestle in."
The Cowboys won the opening match at 125 pounds but the Eagles took the reins, beginning with Dustin Stodola's emphatic pin of Tre Humphrey late in the third period at 133 pounds. Stodola, the fourth-ranked grappler at 133, is now 15-0 this season.
Following Stodola, the Eagles won four-straight matches. Jay Stine cruised to a 6-2 decision over Orlando Guerra at 141, Jacob Anderson won by injury default at 149, CJ Clark earned a 5-1 decision over Juan Alvarado and Tyler Smart pinned Manuel Sedillo at 165.
The Eagles and Highlands split the final four matches. Chadron State's Jordan DeBus claimed a 3-0 decision at 184 and Michael Hill reversed Cody Marquez late in the second period and made it stand up for a 2-0 decision.
Chadron State will wrestle four duals at the University of Nebraska-Kearney dual tournament Saturday.
