February 9, 2016
MONTGOMERY, West Virginia — In front of a large crowd on Senior Night, the Golden Bears were able to secure a 25-18 victory over NCAA DII foe Alderson Broaddus University in the Baisi Athletic Center. The Golden Bears celebrated senior Conrad Lacey who holds an impressive 49-11 career record so far as Tech heads to the United States Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (USCAA) National Tournament Sunday.
Tech jumped out to a quick lead, winning the first two bouts of the evening. In those matches, sophomore Tristan Bean earned a 10-9 decision at 125 while the team also earned points from forfeit (133) to get on top 9-0.
At 149, sophomore Jephte Jeanpaul defeated AB's Zach Gwin by decision, 12-7. The Golden Bears fell in the next two match-ups (157 lbs. and 165 lbs.) before junior Colton Rowe (174) cruised to a 12-4 major decision over Davis Solak.
Junior Terry Nance II trapped his opponent, Nathan Cunningham, on his back in less than one minute (0:58) to score a fall for the Gold and Blue at 197 lbs. Fellow classmate Jon Boarman closed the evening out with another Golden Bear victory by posting a 3-2 decision over Nick Nester.
Tech finishes the regular season with a dual record of 5-12 as they head to the USCAA National Tournament February 14 where they will defend their title as national champions. The tournament will be held in State College, Pennsylvania and is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
