LEBANON, Tenn. -- Shorter University won five matches by fall en route to a dominating 46-9 victory over Mid-South Conference rival Cumberland University (Tenn.) in a conference dual Wednesday afternoon in Lebanon, Tenn.

Nate Galloway (133), Robbie Collum (149), Dalton Lane (157), Raleigh Abbott (174) and Bret Haley (285) each pinned their opponent for the 17th-ranked Hawks, who improved to 4-2 in dual meets this season and bounced back nicely after a close defeat at the hands of sixth-ranked Lindsey Wilson on Sunday.

Galloway, who upset the No. 8-ranked wrestler at 133 pounds just days ago, pinned Cumberland's Ethyn Holbrook in 3:50. Collum, the defending Mid-South Conference champion at 149, pinned Michael Gonzalez in 2:13.

Lane won his match by fall at 6:25 over Cumberland's Jacob Shirley. Abbott, ranked No. 5 at 174, made quick work of Scott Stewart, pinning him in 3:54 and Haley pinned Joseph Hill in 5:43 to wrap up Shorter's impressive victory.

Freshman Wally Figaro, ranked No. 6 at 165 pounds, won a major decision (11-2) over Zeke Hunt to continue his fast start to his first collegiate campaign.

Shorter will take several weeks off for the Christmas holiday before returning to the mat on Jan. 10 when it travels to Spartanburg Methodist for a 12 pm non-league dual. The Hawks then travel to Millersville, Penn., for the Shorty Hitchcock Open on Jan. 15.
