Mocs Drop Gardner-Webb 40-6
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team posted a 40-6 win at Gardner-Webb tonight.  The Mocs had four pins and won nine matches in tonight's victory, improving to 6-6 overall and 2-0 in the Southern Conference. 

The Bulldogs are an affiliate member of the SoCon in wrestling only.  GWU dropped to 4-8 on the year and 2-4 in the SoCon with the loss. 

Freshman Nick Soto (Spring Hill, Fla.) opened with a 12-0 major decision over Cortez Starkes at 125.  Ranked No. 18 in the nation coming into the match, Soto improved to 19-6 overall. 

Freshman Marvin Lopez (Cleveland, Tenn.) followed with a decision at 133 before senior Dean Pavlou (Cleveland, Tenn.) had the first of four Mocs pins at 141. 

Junior Alex Hudson (Marietta, Ga.) won his third straight match with a 4-0 decision over Ryan Medved at 149, giving UTC a 16-0 lead through four matches.  Alex Medved got Gardner-Webb on the board with his pin over sophomore Trey Stavrum (Chattanooga, Tenn.) at 157.  Those were the only points for GWU in tonight's match. 

Senior Josh Condon (Powder Springs, Ga.) took away any momentum GWU may have built with Medved's pin, by posting a fall of his own at 165.  Condon put Justin Guthrie on his back in the first period to give the Mocs a 22-6 lead.  Senior Robert Prigmore (Southlake, Texas) clinched the win with his 2-1 win over Gray Jones in overtime. 

Senior Niko Brown (Kissimmee, Fla.) continued his strong season with his team-leading eighth pin of the year at 197.  Brown, ranked No. 19 in the nation, is a team-best 22-3 overall and 10-0 in dual matches this season.  Sophomore Kevin Malone (Carrollton, Ohio) closed out the match with a 3-0 decision over Travis Porter. 

The Mocs continue their weekend road trip at Appalachian State on Sunday.  UTC faces the Mountaineers at 2:00 p.m. (E.S.T.).  ASU is currently second in the SoCon at 3-1 and is 6-4 overall.
