Raleigh, N.C. – The Old Dominion University wrestling team had 11 wrestlers place at this year’s Wolfpack Open Sunday afternoon at the Carmichael Gymnasium.

“Our guys overall wrestled very hard and created a lot of scoring opportunites,” ODU head coach Steve Martin said. “I thought the five guys in the finals wrestled well throughout the tournament and made their own breaks. We had a couple of matches where we had returning All-Americans on the ropes in the closing seconds but could not close the deal. This team has a lot of talent and we like the progression that we are making each day. We are excited to have the opportunity next week to wrestle at home against National Powers Iowa State and Virginia Tech.”

Old Dominion had a total of 19 wrestlers compete in the Open, while five wrestlers competed unattached. Kevin Beazley (197) placed first in his respective weight class, while Chris Mecate (141), Tristan Warner (157), Jack Dechow (184) and Jacob Henderson (197) placed second in the Wolfpack Open.

ODU’s Buddy Scarborough (125) placed sixth, Michael Hayes (133) placed sixth, Alexander Richardson (149) placed fourth, Devin Geoghegan (157) placed sixth, Austin Coburn (174) placed fifth and Matt Tourdot (285) placed third.

A total of 14 teams had wrestlers compete in the Open including: North Carolina, North Carolina State, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Campbell, Davidson, George Mason, ODU and more. More than 250 wrestlers competed in the 10 weight classifications.
