SAEGERTOWN, PA — Big moves translated into bigger team points, and those carried the day for Bolles alum Chris Bono‘s Wisconsin team Friday night.
Facing off against Edinboro at Saegertown High School’s gym, the Badgers bagged three falls and a major in turning back the Fighting Scots, 28-15, improving their duals record to 5-0 after two weeks of wrestling.
“Our guys did a great job tonight in a very tough environment. I am excited for the rest of the season,” Bono said. “I liked the way the team went out and got a bunch of bonus points for us. In the matches we did lose, we showed a lot of fight.”
Seth Gross (133), Tristan Moran (141) and Evan Wick (165) all won by pin for the Badgers, with Cole Martin (149) taking a 16-3 major.
Tyler Dow (5-2 at 184) and Trent Hillger (4-0 at 285) both had decisions for Wisconsin. Dow’s victory came against a Saegertown HS alum. The Badgers gave up no uncontested bonus points in the dual.
Wisconsin is now off until November 23, when the Badgers will take a flight to Orem, Utah, and face Utah Valley.
