CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team opened it season Saturday with a doubleheader win over Davidson and Newberry. The Mocs, 2-0, blanked Davidson 46-0 in a Southern Conference match and had a tougher time with Newberry, 24-16.

The Mocs used four pins, a technical fall and two major decisions to shut out Davidson in the first match. Three of the five freshmen Head Coach Chris Bono had in his lineup registered the falls, including true freshman Paul Garza and redshirts Kelly Felix and Ethan Winel. Garza pinned Ben Altman at 125 pounds, Felix won by fall over Carl Sandercock, and Winel pinned Davidson’s 197-pounder, Jorge Estrada, in 11 seconds.

Junior Joey Knox recorded two pins on the evening at 157 pounds.

Two other redshirt freshmen also winning in their varsity debut against the Wildcats were Jason McCroskey at 174 pounds and Tyler Roberson at 184.

“The effort is there,” Bono said. “I am proud of that. The young guys have a lot of fight in them. But we made some freshman mistakes. The older guys performed as I expect them to.”

Newberry, 1-1, entered the tri-match ranked No. 6 nationally among NCAA Division II teams. It opened the day with a 39-4 win over Davidson, now 0-2.

Newberry grabbed a quick 3-0 lead on the Mocs after Matt Oliver defeated Paul Garza, 8-4 at 125. Chattanooga rolled off six straight victories for an insurmountable 24-3 lead after the 174 match.

Posting wins for the Mocs were senior Steve Hromada at 133, junior Cody Cleveland at 141, Felix, Knox, senior Seth Garvin at 165 and McCroskey.

Newberry won the last three matches against Chattanooga for the final margin.

The Mocs will compete at the Boilermaker Duals next Saturday in West Lafayette, Ind.
