UV Wrestling Six Wolverines Place at Northern Colorado Open
by Brent Johnson

GREELEY, Colo. In its top tournament in program history, six Utah Valley wrestlers placed at the Old Chicago Northern Colorado Open. Impressively, the team had a strong tournament wrestling in tournaments on back-to-back days.

"We feel very good about how the tournament went," UV assistant head coach KC Rock said. "Our wrestling with each tournament and with each match. This was the best a UV wrestling team has done a tournament in the program's history."

Ben Kjar (125), Flint Ray (133), Sam Allen (149), Gehrhart Vuksinick (165), Marc Fenwick (174) and Casen Eldredge (184) all placed in their respective weight
classes.

After going 4-0 at the Jack Hancock Duals on Saturday, Kjar finished second in his weight division, going 3-1 at the Northern Colorado Open. Kjar recorded one fall on his way to his second place finish.

Ray went 7-1 at Sunday's open upping his record to 10-2 on the weekend. After Ray lost his opening round match by a slim 12-11 margin, he rebounded with seven consecutive victories. In the third-place match Ray beat the wrestler who edged him in the opening round.

Allen finished sixth in the 149-pound weight division after pulling out with an injury. Before suffering the injury, Allen posted a 5-1 record on the day and a 9-1
record for the weekend after a perfect 4-0 showing at the Jack Hancock Duals.

Vuksinick made it to the semi finals and finished in sixth place. He posted a 3-3 record at the tournament. Fenwick finished third with a 4-1 record and his loss
was to the eventual champion in the 174-pound weight division. Eldredge finished second with a 3-1 day, pushing his two-day record to 6-2 wrestling at both
the 184 and 197-pound weight classes.

Heavyweight Billy Green also won both matches he wrestled in before withdrawing from the tournament because of illness.

The Wolverines will have a week off before returning to action at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
