Wrestlers Split at Southern Virginia Tri-Meet

BUENA VISTA, VA-The Hampden-Sydney wrestling team competed in a tri-meet with Southern Virginia and Division II Ohio Valley on Saturday, December 3 at Southern Virginia. The Tigers fell 33-15 to Ohio Valley but bounced back with a 33-16 win over Southern Virginia.

Key victories in the win over Southern Virginia came from Corey Leonard (Chester, VA/Thomas Dale), Brian Swenson (Virginia Beach, VA/Princess Anne), and Jordan Beck (Rome, GA/Darlington).

The game-changer of the match came when Will Griffin (Little Rock, AR/Episcopal Collegiate) came from behind to register a first period pin, putting Hampden-Sydney in position to pull off a team victory.

The Tigers return to action December 17, as they will compete in a tri-meet against Greensboro and McDaniel at Greensboro College.
