WRESTLING DROPS CC OPENER

The Western Maryland wrestling team, ranked 21st in Division III, won seven of 10 bouts to defeat Muhlenberg, 32-13, in the Centennial Conference opener for both teams.

Last year, the Green Terror was ranked 22nd when the two teams met, and the Mules scored a 27-23 upset win en route to the CC dual-meet championship.

Sophomore Josh Carter earned a decision at heavyweight in the second bout of the match, and junior Nate Yeasted picked up his team-leading 13th win of the season, a major decision, at 141. Senior Andrew Faust, wrestling for the first time in 21 months, won by injury default at 165 to close Muhlenberg (2-3) to within 22-13, but Western Maryland (4-0) captured the final two bouts.

Sophomore Susan Marchiano scored 16 points in only 12 minutes of action, and classmate Lindsay Tis, one of four players to make her first career start in the game, had a career-high 12 rebounds to go along with nine points and career highs of four assists and five steals.

Also recording career highs in points were junior Meg Malatack and freshman Pamela Coakley, with seven apiece. Junior Randi Baran played only five minutes but had 12 points and four steals.
