J&W Quad Meet
Oneonta State went 2-1 during the Johnson & Wales Quad Meet on Saturday.
Greg DuVall’s pin of Joe Pizzuto at 184 pounds started a string of five straight victories that led O-State to a 22-19 defeat of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Ben Mikac capped the spurt with a 6-3 decision over Brian Jennings at 133 pounds to give the Red Dragons a 22-6 advantage with four matches to go.
O-State also downed Williams, 24-13, with the help of a six-win run that started with DuVall’s 10-8 decision over Anthony Brooks at 184. Mikac also ended that spurt with a 15-6 major decision over Kaison Tanabe at 133 that made the score 20-3 with four matches left.
Alex Pugh (125), Mikac (133) and Joseph Gates (141) won three straight in a 26-16 loss to Johnson & Wales that turned a 16-0 deficit into a 16-13 match. J&W secured the victory by taking two of the last three matches.
The Red Dragons will compete Sunday in the Gulf Coast Duals in Fort Myers, Fla.
