The Buena Vista wrestling team sent individuals to two different locations on Saturday, but the Beavers still came away with a solid day overall with two at Luther College and four more out at the W & J Invite in Pennsylvania.
Freshman 165-pounder Nick Richards came up with a runner-up finish at Luther, falling in the championship match by fall against Kaleb Young from the University of Iowa. Riley Altenburg took sixth at 133 pounds, losing by a 10-7 margin in his consolation final bout.
Senior Ernesto Garcia was the team’s top finisher out east with a third place effort. Shane Vaughan took sixth at 149 pounds with Dylan Huntoon taking fifth and Kevin Pape placing sixth at 174 pounds.
The Beavers will look to carry their early season success into next week’s Augsburg Adidas Open which is slated to begin at 9:00am.
