The Shippensburg University wrestling team dropped matches to two quality Division I programs Saturday with losses to Lock Haven and Purdue in a tri-match held at Thomas Fieldhouse in Lock Haven.

SU (1-3) fell to Purdue, 35-4, before dropping the second match of the day to Lock Haven, 39-3.

The standout of the day for Shippensburg was sophomore Evan Ramos, who won both of his matches in the 197-pound weight class.

Ramos picked up a major decision victory in his first match of the day, outscoring Purdue's Drake Stein 15-7. Ramos then beat Lock Haven's Matt Moore in a tough 9-7 decision. Ramos has won all four of his matches this season.

Freshman Dustin Steffenino and sophomore Colin Ochs both wrestled tough for the Raiders. Steffenino fell by decisions of 9-4 and 7-6 in his two matches Saturday.

Similar to Steffenino, both of Ochs' losses came by decisions – 6-0 and 5-2.

Shippensburg returns to action after the Thanksgiving holiday on December 5 when it travels to Mercyhurst for the 2015 PSAC Wrestling Championships. SU's next dual meet is December 11 at Messiah.
