SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. – The Shippensburg University wrestling team won three bouts Wednesday afternoon as it opened the home portion of its schedule, but the Raiders dropped a 25-14 dual meet to LIU Post in Super Region 1 competition from Heiges Field House.

Shippensburg (1-1) started out with a bang, as upstart freshman Dustin Steffenino scored a victory by fall in just 1:33 at 125 pounds. Steffenino got a takedown just 17 seconds into his match with Tyler Walsh and got four back points at the 1:08 mark. His pin came 20 seconds later.

LIU Post (1-0) won the next six bouts (four decisions, one major decision, one pin) to lead 22-6 entering the final three bouts. Among the victors was Joe Calderone, the No. 1-ranked wrestler in Super Region 1 at 133 pounds.

At 184 pounds, sophomore Hunter Fenk scored a 6-0 shutout. Fenk notched a takedown with 11 seconds left in the opening period and rode his opponent for the duration of the second frame. In the third period, Fenk got another takedown with one minute to go and finished with more than three minutes of riding-time advantage.

Sophomore Evan Ramos was dominant in scoring a technical fall at 197 pounds, winning 21-4 and securing the five-point decision with just five seconds remaining in the match. Ramos raced out to a 10-1 lead after the first period, with two takedowns and six back points during the frame. Leading 12-2 after two periods, Ramos scored three more takedowns and added two back points on his last shot for the technical fall.

Shippensburg returns to action on Saturday, Nov. 21 at Lock Haven. SU will take on the host Bald Eagles and also face Purdue.
