Spartan wrestling sees midseason struggles

Andrew Ford, Staff Reporter

In their recent matches, the Case Western Reserve University wrestling team has not seen the results they have desired.

On Thursday, Jan. 17 the Spartans lost to Adrian College in a dual match, 25-12.

Third-year wrestlers Andrew Hoover, Alec Hoover and Isaac Collier won their matches in their respective weight classes, as well as fourth-year grappler Gavin Dersh-Fisher.

CWRU was supposed to compete that weekend, Jan. 19, at home in the Dr. Si Ostrach Meet, but it was cancelled due to weather.

The next weekend the team traveled to Wheaton College in Illinois for the Pete Willson Invitational, where they finished 31st out of 38 teams. Alec Hoover and Dersh-Fisher were the only Spartans to advance to the second day of competition.

They’ll return to action on Feb. 2 for Senior Day.
