Loesch, Mills in Petrofes Semis

Sophomore Matt Loesch and junior Dale Mills of the Muhlenberg wrestling team advanced to the semifinals of their respective weight classes on the first day of the Petrofes Invitational, hosted by Messiah.

Loesch, the top seed at 197, won an 11-2 major decision and a 4-3 decision. His scheduled opponent in Saturday’s semifinal is an Oneonta State wrestler from whom he took a 3-2 decision earlier this season.

Mills, seeded second at 149, survived a close 5-4 bout in the first round, then won by default in the quarterfinals. He is slated to face a competitor from Heidelberg in the semis.

The only other Mule to make it to the second day was freshman 141-pounder Joseph DeCampo, who is in the consolation quarterfinals. DeCampo upset the eighth seed from Johns Hopkins in his first bout before falling to the top seed, a Springfield wrestler who is ranked fifth in Division III.

Freshman Chris Swensen, making his debut with Muhlenberg, won two consolation bouts at heavyweight, both on pins, but finished one win short of earning a place.
