What You May Have Missed This Weekend

There was an overload of wrestling action in the past 5 days. It all started with Titan Mercury giving us fireworks winning the World Clubs Cup Championship before one of the busiest college wrestling weekend of the year. There was the Cliff Keen Las Vegas that had plenty of stars but there were also plenty of duals and opens around the country to touch on as well. Here's a few things that maybe slipped past us. 

Brett Pfarr went beast mode through the Cliff Keen Las Vegas. While other names have gotten more attention, Pfarr dominating is very worth noting. He finished off his tournament with a 15-7 win over Moore (Ohio State), and a 14-1 destruction of Haught (Virginia Tech). Pfarr moved up to 197 last year and took 3rd at the NCAA's, perhaps quitely. This year he appears separated from the field to challenge Cox (Missouri).

Our friends at Gardner-Webb nearly pulled off the upset against Virginia. They split the matches 5-5, but ended up on the wrong side of the bonus points battle. Austin Trott did his job though with an impressive 67 second pin of Bethea. 

Virginia 22, Gardner-Webb 18
125: Jack Mueller (Virginia) over Landon LoAlbo (Gardner-Webb) (TF 16-1 3:00)

The Cowboys have crushed Minnesota and Oklahoma so far this season. While they were expected to win, winning 18 of the 20 matches is quite insane. At 285, Austin Schafer is knocking off ranked opponents and making a name for himself. He was stuck behind 2x All-American Marsden and now is able to show his abilities.

While it's not big news that Princeton beat Michigan State. Kolodzik beating Gasca 16-0 is. That's a beating after Gasca has looked very solid this year so far.

Penn State got over 15,000 fans in the BJC to watch them beat Lehigh. The Mountain Hawks put up a fight though making for an entertaining dual.

Indiana, ND State, and SIUE had a tri with some interesting results including some Rodriguez on Rodriguez action at 125 while both are (or should be) ranked. After making the NCAA semis at 174 last year, Nathan Jackson is up at 184. Indiana really wanted to get RS freshman Skatzka in the lineup, but perhaps Jackson is better off up. He has won all his matches with bonus points so far this year.
