Trio of Vikings Compete at Findlay Open

Trio of Vikings Compete at Findlay Open

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A trio of student-athletes from the Cleveland State University wrestling team competed at the Findlay Open Saturday inside the Kohler Fitness and Recreation Center.

Redshirt sophomore Andrew Coghill, redshirt junior John Martin and freshman Chris Morrow wrestled for CSU Saturday, and each picked up at least one win.

After suffering a setback via decision in his first match of the day, Morrow rallied in the consolation bracket by winning each of his next two bouts. Morrow picked a win by fall in under a minute in his first consolation match before advancing to the consolation third round due to the disqualification of his opponent. Morrow bowed out of the consolation bracket after a 4-2 setback.

Coghill began his day with a major decision victory in the first round but then suffered a setback in sudden-victory in his second match of the day. Coghill's day ended with another close defeat, an 8-6 loss.

Martin began his day similarly to the way Coghill's ended, as he suffered a 6-5 defeat in his first match of the day. He came back in a huge way, as he posted an 18-3 technical fall victory in his first consolation bout, before he lost by decision in his final match of the day.

The Vikings will be back in action this Tuesday, Nov. 22, in a tri-dual featuring host Kent State and nationally ranked Ohio State.
