Huston Evans takes runner-up at N.C. State Wolfpack Open

RALEIGH, N.C. - Newberry College wrestlers picked up 26 individual victories, with Huston Evans taking 184-pound runner-up honors at the North Carolina State Wolfpack Open in Carmichael Gymnasium on Sunday.

Evans took a pair of decisions over Maryland's Jaron Smith and The Citadel's Sawyer Root to advance to the finals. He was hit with a second stalling call during the sudden victory period of the championship bout to drop that botu to Chattanooga's John Lampe 2-1.

In the large field of wrestlers - the vast majority of which were Division I wrestlers - no other Wolves finished in the top six, while many still picked up three wins.

Trung Duong had a 4-2 day, advancing to the consolation semifinals with a fall and a major decision. Jacob Hopper went 3-2 at 141 lbs., Lukas Gilmore went 3-2 at 165 lbs. with two first period pins, Cody Brundage went 3-2 at 197 lbs. and Mike Kennedy went 3-2 at 285 lbs.

Newberry is now off until Sunday, December 13, when the Wolves host the Ninth Annual Newberry Duals. Newberry will welcome Brewton-Parker, Coker, Cumberland (Tenn.), Limestone, Spartanburg Methodist, Truett-McConnell and UNC Pembroke for five sessions on three mats of action starting at 9 a.m. that day.
