DSU handles University of Regina
REGINA, Saskatchewan — The Dickinson State wrestling team competed in its first dual since its 30-12 loss to University of Minnesota-Moorhead on Nov. 21 and performed far better.
The Blue Hawks dominated the University of Regina 37-8 on Wednesday.
In the 133 and 197 weight classes, senior Mack Chambers and junior Tyler Brown recorded the team’s only pins on the night but early on in their respective matches. There was a changeup at heavyweight for the Blue Hawks with senior Brian Klevis out after injuring his knee Saturday at the University of Jamestown Open. Head coach Thad O’Donnell said it was a sprained MCL and is questionable for next week. Instead, junior Meyer Bohn stepped in his place and won 8-0 over Cole Veit but lost 5-4 to Issac Luciale in his exhibition match.O’Donnell said he was quite impressed with junior Garrett Traylor’s performance Wednesday. Traylor wrestled in the 149 weight class and beat Regina’s Dana Beauchart by a tech fall.“We wrestled wells end with all the distractions of going across the border,” O’Donnell said. “It was a first for most of our team. I was impressed with Garrett Traylor and his attack on his feet and actually the whole team was very aggressive … Great job (Wednesday) with a win in the dual.”The Blue Hawks come back to the mat Dec. 6 for the Battle of the Rockies Duals in Great Falls, Mont., followed by the University of Great Falls Open on Dec. 7.
