Tyson Meyer wins 184-pound division as six Huskies earn placements in Eau Claire
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – No. 5 St. Cloud State Wrestling placed six wrestlers and saw Tyson Meyer earn a title at the highly-competitive Don Parker Open hosted by UW-Eau Claire. Most Huskies competed unattached at the Open as redshirting wrestlers enjoyed an opportunity to compete while key reserves stayed fresh with matches ahead of the final stretch of March.
Tyson Meyer enjoyed a strong performance at 184 pounds, going 4-0 to win the title with a fall of Logan Hennen in the quarterfinal. Robby Horsman gave SCSU a second top-three finish at 133, going 3-1 with a fall of North Dakota State’s Julian Perez in the quarterfinal on his way to third place.
Isaac Grams placed sixth at 197, going 2-2 with a fall and a major decision. Nolan Throne took sixth at 149 with a 3-2 performance. Luke Studer went 3-2 at 149 to take seventh with one major decision, while Wyatt Abele added a 3-2 day at 157 to place seventh with a fall and a major decision.
Phillip Kue had a stellar day in a loaded 133-pound class, going 4-1 with two tech falls to win a Consi first-place match. Nate Rocheleau and Kaleb Horn competed at 141, while Cameron Riggs, Aoci Bernard and Augustus Donovan joined Throne and Studer at 149. Riggs won his Consi first place bout after winning four of five matches with two falls.
Cody Minor competed at 157 while Sebastian Zamorano went at 174 and Jadon Mims wrestled three matches at heavyweight.
Quotables – St. Cloud State head coach Steve Costanzo
“I think it is important for these young men to get opportunities and learn from their successes and failures. The Don Parker Open gave us a good opportunity to provide that environment.”
The Huskies return to NSIC dual action with a trip to No. 14 Mary and (RV) Minot State next weekend.
