NEVADA - Nevada got strong performances out of Cam Vincent and Luis Lopez at the Nevada quadrangular dual wrestling meet Jan. 28.
Vincent scored two pins and received a forfeit at 285 pounds and Lopez earned a technical fall and a win by major decision in duals against Roland-Story, Ogden and Iowa Falls-Alden. The Cubs were shorthanded due to quarantine and injuries, only picking up three more victories on the evening in falling to Roland-Story by a 70-10 score, Ogden by a 60-18 margin and Iowa Falls-Alden by a 48-17 decision to drop to 6-17 on the season.
“We’ve basically been going without four varsity wrestlers,” Nevada assistant coach Seth Meyne said. “It gives some of the JV wrestlers a chance to step up and be part of that varsity lineup and what it takes to be a Nevada Cub.”
Vincent pinned Roland-Story's Colin Hansen in one minute, 14 seconds and Iowa Falls-Alden's Kaiden Barkey in 35 seconds. He picked up his forfeit win against Ogden, improving to 19-4 at the conclusion of the meet.
“I told him you need to get that two-on-one - that Russian tie - and work for that leg attack,” Meyne said. “He did. He got that leg attack and I think that’s going to build that confidence going into sectionals and districts that he needs to have.”
Lopez defeated Iowa Falls-Alden's Jackson Kobe by technical fall, winning 18-1 in 5:15. He also topped Roland-Story's Colin Streit by a 9-0 major decision.
The lone loss for Lopez came in a tough 4-2 battle with Ogden’s Dominic Degeneffe.
Sam Steele and Payton Mosinski earned wins by fall against Ogden for Nevada. Steele pinned the Bulldogs’ Avery McCloud in 3:48 at 145 and Mosinski stuck Jon Seeger in 5:38 at 152.
Dominick Garcia gave Nevada a win at 126 against Iowa Falls-Alden. He pinned the Cadets’ Jacob Michaelson in 4:39.
