Match Notes

Cross-town rivals meet as Case Western Reserve hosts Baldwin Wallace in an early-season dual. The Spartans have wrestled only one dual match, while the Yellow Jackets have competed strictly in tournaments. Key matches figure to be at 125 and 157. Spartan 125-pounder Josh Hall is 4-4 with a pair of pins this season, but he has missed time recently with an injury. Hall's projected opponent, Jesse Gunter, is 12-1 with two Ohio Athletic Conference Wrestler of the Week awards. At 157, Spartan freshman Eric Sullivan made his collegiate debut last weekend at the RIT Invitational and posted a 4-2 record with a pin, while BW's Garrett Chase is 17-6 overall.
