Wrestling Opens Season With Strong Victory Over Waynesburg, 26-15
SU gets pins from Ochs, Garber and Ramos, along with tech fall from Dustin Steffenino

The Shippensburg University wrestling team got three pins and a technical fall on Wednesday night as it opened its season with an impressive 26-15 victory over Waynesburg in a road dual meet inside Rudy Marisa Fieldhouse.

Shippensburg (1-0) opened with immediate momentum, as freshman Dustin Steffenino scored a technical fall at 125 pounds. His 19-3 victory in two periods gave the Raiders an early 5-0 lead.

Waynesburg (0-1) rebounded with decisions at 133 and 141 pounds to take a 6-5 lead, but then sophomore Colin Ochs scored a second-period pin in 4:17 – his first career victory by fall – to give SU a lead it would not relinquish.

Freshman Adam Martz, a three-time state champion from Maryland, debuted with a hard-fought 5-3 decision at 157 pounds. Martz scored two takedowns and also got a riding-time point en route to the victory.

Sophomore Gray Garber made his first collegiate victory a resounding one – as he pinned Matt Claxton in 1:44. After two more Waynesburg decisions, sophomore Evan Ramos cemented the victory with a pin in his first bout back after a medical-redshirt season. Ramos scored the victory by fall in 2:02.

The SU victory avenged a loss to Waynesburg last season, 25-11, in a match at York (Pa.) College.

Shippensburg will host LIU Post and York (Pa.) College in a tri-meet on Wednesday that begins at 4 p.m.
