Wrestling Captures Team Title at Host Invite
The Army West Point Wrestling team continued its strong start to the season Sunday, as the Black Knights won three individual titles, as well as the top overall team crown at its host invite.
"I thought the guys competed really hard," said head coach Kevin Ward. "We talked about before the tournament, that as long as you go out there and fight and you can walk off the mat saying I gave everything I had, we can improve from that."
Army finished with an impressive 140 point team total, tops among the eight teams in attendance. Penn State was second overall with 127.5 points, and Central Michigan rounded out the top three with 107.5.
The Black Knights also sent six wrestlers to respective finals, with the three individual champions coming at 165, 184, and 197 pounds.
Firstie Cael McCormick went 3-0, with three decision wins on the day. He won a 9-7 affair in the final against Richard Stamm of Hofstra. Read more.
