Three wrestlers still alive as they look to advance to the placement round tomorrow morning
LAS VEGAS – Minnesota closed out day one of the Cliff Keen Invitational in Las Vegas, Nev., as three Gophers are still alive on the consolation side as they look to place in tomorrow’s competition.
Minnesota kicked off the day with a solid performance in the opening session as they pushed three into the Friday evening quarterfinals, with Jake Gliva, Jake Bergeland, and Michael Blockhus all advancing.
After having a first-round bye, Jake Gliva’s first and only competition of the morning session was against No. 20 Job Greenwood of Wyoming. Gliva controlled the match early and often as he secured a takedown in each of the first two periods of the bout, before displaying some solid collar-tie defense in the third period to hold his ranked opponent scoreless in the 5-0 victory.
