Black and Gold grapplers gain dual win

CHICAGO, ILL. – Fueled by four bonus-point wins, Manchester University upended Lakeland College of Wisconsin 30-18 Saturday, Jan. 2, to highlight their afternoon at the University of Chicago Duals.

Sophomore 141-pounder Chase Wilson (Peru, Ind.) and junior 174-pounder Dylan Lauffer (Fairfield, Ohio) each gathered pins, and sophomore heavyweight Nick Joyner (Bedford, Ind.) added six more team points with a forfeit victory as did senior 133-pounder Kalib Jackson (Angola, Ind.). The underclassman duo of sophomore 125-pounder Alan Mock (Denver, Ind.) and sophomore 157-pounder Alex Arney (Fort Wayne, Ind.) also added decision wins to help sew up the outing.

MU (1-9) nearly made it two wins in three duals. Harper Community College rallied with a fall and decision in the final two weights to overcome the Spartans 26-23. Arney, Jackson, Lauffer, freshman 141-pounder Luis Cervantes (Warsaw, Ind.) and sophomore 184-pounder Alex Roberts (Winslow, Ind.) each took individual victories with Cervantes and Roberts getting bonus points added due to a fall and technical fall.

The day opened with a 45-6 loss to Iowa Conference member University of Dubuque. Lauffer, as part of a 3-0 day, gained a decision as did Roberts.

Manchester University breaks from competition until Saturday, Jan. 16. They join the field at Elmhurst College’s Al Hanke Invitational.
