NO OVERTHROW FOR WRESTLING

John Sternlicht Facing the red-hot Monarchs of King’s in its first home match of the season, the Muhlenberg wrestling team could not summon a coup d’état.

The Mules fell, 42-3, to a King’s team that entered the match fresh off defeating two nationally ranked foes over the weekend and winners of eight of its last nine.

Sophomore John Sternlicht (right) recorded the Mules’ lone win with a 6-2 victory at 184. After a scoreless first period, Sternlicht chose the down position to start the second and immediately escaped, taking a 1-0 lead. In the final thirty seconds of the period he recorded a takedown and a three-point near fall to widen his lead.

Junior Keith Swanson nearly pulled off a major upset at 157. Facing an opponent that had beaten the No.2-ranked wrestler over the weekend en route to being named d3wrestle.com’s Division III wrestler of the week, Swanson scored a takedown and an escape in the first period to go up 3-2. Down 6-3 in the third, he managed an escape to pull within two, but could not come up with an equalizing takedown.
