The Shippensburg University wrestling team defeated host Waynesburg on Saturday to cap off three dual meets at the Rudy Marisa Fieldhouse.

The Raiders fell to Lycoming, 35-20, and to Averett, 40-12, before besting the Yellowjackets, 44-12. SU was shorthanded in most of its duals and had several grapplers wrestle up in the finale against Waynesburg.

Andrew Wert (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin (Army/Virginia Tech)) continued his excellent start to the season with a pin against Averett a pair of first-period technical falls.

Owen Koch (Phoenixville, Pa./Phoenixville) also went 3-0 on the day, pinning Lycoming’s James Ellis in 4:11, pinning Averett’s Nolan Gerwitz, and winning by 10-3 decision against Waynesburg’s Jessie Orbin.

Trey Shoemaker (Lewistown, Pa./Mifflin County) went 2-0, pinning Lycoming’s Gable Crebs in 4:13 and Waynesburg’s Ayden Bishoff in 1:21. Fellow Mifflin County native Kyler Everly (Lewistown, Pa./Mifflin County) won two of his three bouts at 165 pounds, including an 8-6 decision against Lycoming’s Chase Chapman and a pin of Waynesburg’s Nash Bloom in 1:36.

Other highlights against Waynesburg included pins for Anthony Lavish (Fairless Hills, Pa./Conwell Egan) at 157 pounds, Liam Bostrom (Boonton, N.J./Boonton) at 174 pounds and Connor Livingston (Westminster, Md./Manchester Valley) at heavyweight.

Shippensburg’s next competition is after Thanksgiving, as the Raiders will host Kutztown on Wednesday, Dec. 6 for a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) dual meet at Heiges Field House.
