Dragons Prep For Thursday Dual with Mavericks

MOORHEAD, Minn. — MSU Moorhead wrestling will return to their home mat this week for a Thursday night dual with Minnesota State. Action begins at 7 p.m. from Nemzek Fieldhouse.

MSUM is coming off a harsh stretch of duals as the Dragons fell to 17th-ranked Augustana, 12th-ranked Upper Iowa, and 24th-ranked Southwest Minnesota State this past weekend. The Dragons were led by 157-pounder Cody Wienen in the dual against the Vikings as he would earn a pinfall victory at 6:12. MSUM’s remaining team points in the dual were scored by Airin Spell, who earned an injury default victory. Against Upper Iowa later in the day, Thomas Carrillo would collect a 2-1 decision win before Jacob Reinardy grabbed a decision win of his own at 165 pounds.

In the dual against the Mustangs, MSUM was once again led by Carrillo, who earned a first-period tech fall at 2:59. Hunter Hayes won his 141-pound matchup, narrowly missing a major decision with an 8-1 score. Isaiah Huus continues to lead the Dragons with 18 wins on the season so far, including eight pinfall victories. Five other Dragons have double-digit wins in 2023-24 in Wienen (14-11), Reinardy (13-10), Hunter Heim (10-11), Will Price (14-11), and Anthony Sykora (13-9). The 125-pounder Heim leads MSUM with three tech fall victories this season.


Kris Nelson is in his 15th season as MSUM’s head coach.
