RALEIGH, N.C. -- Three Old Dominion wrestlers captured top-five finishes at the Wolfpack Open at NC State on Sunday. Freshman Alex Madrigal clinched third place at 125, Devin Geoghegan took third at 157 and Michael Hayes earned fifth place at 133 for the Monarchs.

Competing unattached at 125, Madrigal recorded two falls and a major decision to reach the semifinals where he lost to American’s No. 10 ranked David Terao. As the semifinal losers dropped straight into the third place bout, Madrigal defeated Duke’s Thayer Atkins, 8-2, to earn third place.

At 133, Michael Hayes opened up the tournament with an 18-2 tech fall victory before dropping a tight 3-2 decision to Tyler Ziegler of Gardner Webb. In the consolation bracket, Hayes dominated his next five opponents, as the redshirt junior recorded a fall, tech fall, two major decisions and a 13-7 decision to clinch fifth place.

Fifth-year senior Devin Geoghegan opened up with a 13-2 major decision victory and a 5-2 win over Blake Roulo of George Mason in the 157 bracket. In the quarterfinals, Geoghegan pulled out a 9-7 overtime victory in an exciting match against Duke’s Connor Bass. After falling in the semis to American’s No. 18 John Boyle, Geoghegan racked up a 10-0 major decision win to place third.

Although they did not earn a top-six finish, Steven Simpson and Josh Markham turned in impressive performances at 125 and 133, respectively, as Simpson went 3-2 and Markham went 4-2. Freshman Shane Jones finished 3-2 on the day at 149 as well.
