Kyle Akins And Justin Patrick Take Home Titles At NYS Collegiate Championships

Nov 22, 2015

CORNELL, NY – The University at Buffalo, The State University of New York wrestling team (4-1, 0-0 MAC) performed at a high level on Sunday at the New York State Collegiate Championships in Cornell, NY as the Bulls took home the fourth place team finish with 126 points earned. Leading the way for UB were Kyle Akins and Justin Patrick, a pair of 125-pounders, who each won their respective brackets. Akins won the 'A' flight while Patrick continued to improve, winning the 'B' flight.

The Bulls had a total of eight grapplers place inside the top-7 in the 'A' flights including Akins' victory at 125-pounds and seven grapplers record top-5 finishes in the 'B' flights including Patrick who won the 125-pound bracket.

"Not a bad day but not a great day," said head coach John Stutzman. "We have a lot of work to do to get ready for Eastern Michigan. We need to compete harder with more confidence next time out."

Akins shined for the Bulls at 125-pounds on Sunday as he started off his afternoon with a pin of Bryan Damon from Hofstra in just 4:20. He then went on to collect a technical fall and a decision victory before being awarded a medical forfeit from his opponent, Dalton Macri of Cornell, in the final. Akins improves to 7-2 overall on the year.

At 285-pounds in the 'A' bracket, Jake Gunning continued to impress as he walked his way through to the finals behind a pair of pins and a medical forfeit. In the final, Gunning was outmatched by Mike Hughes of Hofstra, falling by major decision 8-0. Gunning collected the second place finish while improving to 7-2 on the year. A pair of Bulls earned fourth place finishes as Bryan Lantry went 3-2 on the day to take home fourth at 133-pounds while Austin Weigel worked a little harder for his fourth place finish as he went 5-2 on the day.

At 141-pounds, redshirt freshman Brandon Lapi had a strong day as he finished 3-2 on the afternoon en route to a fifth place finish. Lapi was able to earn a technical fall victory as well as a pair of decision victories to earn his podium spot. Wrestling in just his second tournament of the season, Derek Holcomb had a strong showing for UB as he went 4-3 on the afternoon to take home sixth place at 165-pounds. The redshirt freshman collected victories by fall, technical fall, major decision and decision en route to the sixth place finish. Junior James Benjamin continued his consistent production as he went 4-3 on the day to take home sixth place. Benjamin improved to 7-5 overall on the year. Junior Ryan Therrien finished off his afternoon with a 3-2 record and a seventh place finish for the Bulls.

In the 'B' brackets, Patrick continued to shine for the Bulls as he went 4-0 on the day en route to the first place finish. Patrick has now won two straight tournaments for the Bulls at 125-pounds as he improved to 13-3 overall on the year. Patrick started his day with a major decision victory over his opponent from Columbia before earning a decision in his next match and another major decision victory to send him to the first place match. In the first place match, Patrick completely dominated the match as he was able to pin Conner Ziegler from Army in just 34 seconds.

Freshman Nate Rose had a strong showing for the Bulls at 197-pounds as he earned three straight decision victories to earn a spot in the first place match. Unfortunately, Rose was pinned in the fifth minute by his opponent from Cornell, solidifying Rose's second place finish.

The Bulls saw three grapplers take home third place finishes in the 'B' brackets as Sean Peacock finished off his day going 4-1, Ryan Kromer went 4-1 and Rocco Russo went 3-1. Peacock collected the third place finish at 141-pounds with two major decision victories, one technical fall victory and one decision victory. Kromer had a strong day as he earned three major decision victories while Russo had a pin and technical fall win.

Ian James and Blake Retell also took home fifth place finishes for the Bulls as they went 6-1 and 5-1, respectively. James had four victories by decision, one by pin and one by technical fall while Retell had two decision victories, one pin and one technical fall before winning the fifth place match with a pin of Austin Daye from New York University.

The Bulls will return to the mat on Sunday, December 6 as they will hit the road for their first Mid-American Conference dual of the season against Eastern Michigan. The dual is set to start at 4:00 pm in Ypsilanti, MI.
