Win Over Northern Part Showcase Sweep For SDSU

Jacks Beat Wolves 28-8 At Sanford Pentagon

The South Dakota State University wrestling team wrapped up a busy weekend of competition by sweeping three duals Sunday afternoon in the South Dakota Showcase at the Sanford Pentagon.

The Jackrabbits, who improved to 4-2 in duals this season, posted a 28-8 win over Northern State in the opener, followed by a 56-0 shutout of Dakota Wesleyan. SDSU closed the day against in-state competition with a 37-6 victory over Augustana.

Alex Kocer won two of his matches at 149 pounds by pin and another by technical fall, while younger brother David added two pins at 174 pounds as both went 3-0 on the afternoon. Ben Gillette also won all three of his bouts, including one by forfeit in the dual against Dakota Wesleyan. SDSU won four matches by forfeit and four by pin against an under-manned DWU squad.

SDSU tallied a total of eight pins on the day, including three in the final match against Augustana.

The Jackrabbits are off from competition until Dec. 29-30 at the Midlands Championships in Evanston, Illinois.
