ADA, Ohio--The Adrian College men's wrestling team scored 103-1/2 points to finish in fifth place at Saturday's 13-team Ohio Northern Invitational hosted by the Polar Bears in the ONU Sports Center. The Bulldogs had 10 individuals that placed this afternoon, and the team vastly improved five spots from its 10th-place showing at last year's event.

Sophomore Devon Pingel led the Bulldogs with a third-place finish at 184 pounds, followed by senior Dominic Paterra who took fourth at 141, freshman Elijah Sanchez was fifth at 133 and sophomore Noah Nieman went sixth at 149.

"Not too bad. We scored 100 points as a team," said Adrian third-year head coach Bill Schindel after the event. "It was another exciting showing. I thought we showed a lot of improvement and continued to work hard."

In addition, freshmen Mateo Diaz (125 pounds), Jordan Scofield (133), Robert Nowik (141) and sophomore Ethan Garcia (157) all placed seventh for Adrian, which also saw freshmen Collin Lewis (285) end up seventh and Derick Duvall (165), eighth.

"The team wrestled really tough," Shindel said. "Ethan (Garcia) looked great.

"We have a lot of freshmen and sophomores who are doing really well," he said. "It shows a lot of promise for the continued growth of the program."

The Bulldogs were 24-1/2 points behind first-place Washington & Lee with 128. Heidelberg University finished second (119), while ONU (115-1/2) and Tiffin (111) were third and fourth, respectively.

Adrian is off until next Saturday when it travels to a tournament at North Central College in Naperville, Ill.
