Statesmen Succumb to Vikings

Marshall, Mo.–The William Penn men’s wrestling team was unable to claim victory in a Heart of America Athletic Conference dual meet Wednesday, falling 48-3 to #14 Missouri Valley.

WPU (1-10, 1-5 Heart) was triumphant in just one of the eight contested matches, while forfeiting the two other weight classes.

133-pounder Darquell Pierre (Sr., St. Petersburg, Fla., Sociology) earned the lone Statesmen win in a bout that featured two individuals ranked in the top six in the Heart. Pierre, who is ranked #6 in the Heart, knocked off the Heart’s #5 seed, Dequarius Millett, by a 7-5 decision.

Joe Eads (So., Morrison, Ill., Biology) also went the full seven minutes at 149 pounds, but failed to upset the fourth-ranked grappler in the NAIA, falling to Richard Pocock 6-1.
