RECAP: Wrestling finishes 3-0 at Millersville Duals

Raiders pick up wins over American International, Thaddeus Stevens and Camden County


Despite having to forfeit bouts at two separate weight classes, the Shippensburg University wrestling team went a perfect 3-0 in dual meets, and at times dominated the opposition during a successful Saturday at the Millersville Duals.

Shippensburg (9-6, 1-3 PSAC) defeated American International College, 22-21, Thaddeus Stevens, 43-6, and Camden County Community College, 37-18.

The Raiders spotted all three of their opponents a 12-0 advantage thanks to forfeits at 125 and 133 pounds, but the team’s healthy wrestlers came through in a big way, earning bonus points in 17 of their 20 wins.

In a close opening dual meet against American International, graduate Avery Shay (New Fairfield, Ct./New Fairfield (Clarion)) and freshman Owen Koch (Phoenixville, Pa./Phoenixville) earned major decisions at 157 and 184 pounds, and freshman Kyler Everly (Lewistown, Pa./Mifflin County) earned a tech fall victory at 165 to open the door for an SU comeback.

The Raiders still trailed 21-19 heading into the final matchup at 285 pounds, where redshirt-junior Danny Scheib (Hegins, Pa./Tri Valley) had no trouble with the Yellow Jackets’ Andrew Bumpus, recording four takedowns enroute to a match-clinching 8-4 victory.

The other two matchups were all Raiders.

Pins from Shay, Everly, Koch and freshman 197-pounder Trey Shoemaker (Lewistown, Pa./Mifflin County), as well as tech falls from freshman Mike Trainor (Cochranville, Pa./Octorara) and redshirt-sophomore Nyiem Flucas (Hershey, Pa./Hershey) contributed to what was a lopsided victory over Thaddeus Stevens College.

Sophomore Connor Livingston (Westminster, Md./Manchester Valley) picked up his first victory of the season at heavyweight, recording a 3-2 decision over Thaddeus Stevens wrestler Brett Fick.

In the finale, graduate Al Miscovich (Mount Pleasant, Pa./Mount Pleasant Area (UPJ)) helped to erase an early deficit with an 18-1 tech fall win at 141 pounds. Shay later picked up his third win of the day with a 44-second fall against Camden County’s David Barber, Shoemaker earned a pin at 197, and Scheib wrapped up a perfect outing for himself and the team with a tech fall win at 285.

Everly, Miscovich and Koch joined Shay with three wins Saturday.

The Raiders return to action Wednesday, February 1for a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) dual meet against the East Stroudsburg Warriors. Wrestling from Heiges Field House is slated to begin at 7 p.m.
