By: By Bill Morgal, Sports Information Director

The Shippensburg University wrestling team won seven of the nine contested bouts on Wednesday night, scoring bonus points in six, to dispatch NCAA Division III opponent Waynesburg, 35-12, in a dual meet from Heiges Field House.
Sophomore used three four-point near falls and a couple of takedowns at 133 pounds to achieve a 17-2 technical fall in the second period. It was one of two technical falls on the night for the Raiders, as redshirt-sophomore achieved a 17-0 result at 197 pounds on the strength of three four-point near falls, a two-point near fall, a takedown and an escape.
SU also got three first-period pins on the night. Sophomore won in 1:27 at 141, redshirt-junior worked a headlock in 1:02 and sophomore notched his third pin of the young season at 174 in 1:25.
Redshirt-junior posted a 10-1 major decision at 157 pounds, using four takedowns, an escape and a riding-time advantage to accrue double-digit points. Senior recorded a 6-0 shutout at heavyweight.
The Raiders yielded a forfeit at 125 pounds and lost decisions at 165 pounds and 184 pounds, but otherwise made mostly quick work of Waynesburg. Wednesday's dual meet lasted 58 minutes.
Shippensburg will take a break for more than a month over the holidays, returning to action January 8 against Seton Hill from Heiges Field House.
