Select members of the Case Western Reserve University wrestling team competed at the JCU Open on Sunday in the Tony DeCarlo Varsity Center on the John Carroll University campus.

Freshmen 184-pounder Cade Lueker headlined the Spartans performances by recording a fourth-place finish in his weight class.

Lueker began the open with pin over Gannon's Luigi Yates in 48 seconds. He then won a 13-8 decision over Baldwin Wallace 's Dominic Shelly to advance to the third place match of the draw. However, Lueker dropped a 16-0 technical fall to Yates to finish fourth in the 184-pound bracket.

In addition, freshman 165-pounder Kyle Roberts went 1-2 in the 165 Blue bracket.
