Collegiate wrestling is in its second week of the season. Week two saw three area wrestlers in action. Sheldon Seymour (Lehigh), Gavin Bradley (Castleton), and Ayden Sprague (Penn College).
Wrestling at the Journeymen Collegiate Classic was Sheldon Seymour. This is not a traditional tournament, wrestlers are placed into 5 ranked A-E pools, those pools are then split again to wrestle each other in a round-robin and then have one cross-over match. In Sheldon’s first match he faced Diego Sotelo (Harvard) ranked 19th. Seymour lost the match by a decision 5-4.
In the second-round match Seymour faced Ryan Miller (University of Penn) ranked 20th. Miller took the match with a major decision11-1. The third round of pool matches yielded a bye for Seymour. In the cross-over match Seymour squared off with Troy Hohman (N.C. State). It was here where Seymour was able to end his day on a high note by scoring the win by decision 5-4 and taking 5th place for the overall tournament.
Gavin Bradley was in action at the Roger Williams Invitational. Starting in the championship round of 16, Bradley faced off with Christopher Montes (Bridgewater) where he scored a fall in:40. In the quarterfinals Bradley faced Christian Lievano (Cortland) where again he was able to score a fall in 3:52. Headed into the semi-finals Bradley needed 2:47 to record his third fall of the tournament over Ryan O’Rourke of Johnson and Wales. In the finals, Bradley finished off his day with a 18-5 major decision over teammate Caleb Massari (Castleton). Another good tournament for Gavin.
Another local wrestler in action was Ayden Sprague representing Penn College. Penn College taking part in a quad meet at SUNY Brockport. Sprague wrested in an extra match when the team wrestled Niagara Community College where he fell by fall to Renso Montalvo. Penn College would be victorious in all three of the meets, Beating Niagara Community College 46-11, Oswego State 30-19 and Brockport 39-12.
