San Luis Obispo, Calif. – The No. 22 Oregon State wrestling team topped Cal Poly 22-12 Thursday afternoon in its first outdoor meet.
With rain throughout the morning in San Luis Obispo, it was unsure if the match could actually be held outdoors. The California sunshine came through in the end, though, and the meet took place in the plaza of the University Union.
The meet started at 165 lbs. and Oregon State’s Toney Chay defeated Travis Berridge by a 12-9 decision, giving the Beavers an early 3-0 lead.
Moving to 174, Cal Poly’s Dominic Kastl claimed the next three points of the match with a 6-4 decision over Joe Latham, bringing the score to 3-3. Austin Morehead (184) got things back on track for the Beavs with a 17-12 decision over Sean Dougherty.
Oregon State’s Taylor Meeks followed that performance with a pin in just 1:54 over Cal Poly’s Nicolas Johnson, bringing the score to 12-3. The Mustangs got back on the board at heavyweight as Spencer Empey topped Mick Dougharity by an 8-3 decision.
Cal Poly claimed the next two bouts as Britain Longmire topped Pat Rollins 4-2, while Devon Lotito defeated Drew Van Anrooy by a 5-0 decision. Heading into the final three bouts, the score was tied at 12.
The Beavers ended the meet on a high note by taking the final three bouts. At 141, Oregon State’s Joey Delgado tallied a 17-4 major decision over Victor Trujillo, earning four more points for the Beavs.
Oregon State’s Scott Sakaguchi (149) collected three points for the Beavs with a 3-2 decision over Kyle Chene, followed by Jordan Henrickson (157), who defeated Cal Poly’s Luke McDonald by a 7-3 decision. The Beavers claimed a 22-12 victory, moving them to 9-5 on the season, and 3-0 in Pac-12 competition.
The Beavers next travel to Boise State to take on the Broncos in their fourth Pac-12 match of the season.Results:
