Day 1 Recap

Brance Simms (133) and Joe Brewster (165) both advanced, but took different paths to day two.

Simms opened the day with a first-round loss to Chasen Tolbert (Utah Valley) by 12-2 major decision. Simms rallied, however, winning three-straight matches by decision. Frist, he knocked off Charles Costanzo (Army) 6-2, the most points scored by either Simms or his opponent during the streak. Next, he edged Esteban Gomez-Rivera (American) 3-1. Simms completed his day by topping Western Wrestling Conference foe Kasey Garnhart (Wyoming) 4-1.

Simms faces Joshua Rodriguez (North Dakota State) in the consolation bracket.

Brewster advanced in conventional fashion, scoring two-straight decisions in the championship bracket. Brewster beat Alex Elder (Oregon State) by a single point, 4-3. In the second round, he needed an extra period to score a 3-1 win versus Isaiah Jimenez (San Francisco State).

Brewster faces Caleb Marsh (Kent State) in the consolation bracket.

Dustin Walraven (149) and Cody Pack (157) were both first-round winners, but dropped matches to ranked opponents in the second round.

"Overall, I am a bit disappointed with what went on today," head coach Chris Bono said. "We still have a lot of work to do. We have a chance to place two guys tomorrow, which is exciting, but we had a couple injuries and did not weigh in one guy. I am pleased with the effort and the fight, but it is time to start posting some results. Hopefully tomorrow we can get two guys to place and finish the tournament strong."

Complete brackets are available through Gimp Wrestling.
