Two Stanford wrestlers advance in tournament

Stanford redshirt senior Ryan Mango and sophomore Evan Silver have advanced to the quarterfinals of the third annual Southern Scuffle at McKenzie Arena in Chattanooga, Tenn. As a team, Stanford has posted 25 team points and sits in 15th place.


Mango, ranked fifth nationally at 133 pounds, had a bye to start the tournament. He reached the quarterfinals with an 8-2 decision over Shayden Terukina of Iowa State and an 18-7 major decision against Air Force's Gregory Rinker. Mango moves to 16-1 on the season and will face Penn State's James Gulibon in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

Silver went 3-0 at 125 pounds to earn a matchup with Penn State's Nicholas Megaludis in the quarterfinals. Ranked 12th nationally, Silver registered major decisions over Kevon Powell of Ohio (9-1) and Hunter Wood of Army (12-2) before edging Old Dominion's Brandon Jeske, 8-7.

Five other Cardinal wrestlers are still alive in the tournament and will compete in the consolation bracket on Thursday. Senior 174-pounder Kyle Meyer went 3-1, while senior 157-pounder Bret Baumbach, redshirt freshman 184-pounder Zach Nevills and true freshman 125-pounder Tommy Pawelski all went 2-1 on the day. Redshirt freshman Jim Wilson, ranked No. 18 at 165 pounds, finished 1-1.

Stanford's Edwin Park finished fourth in the men's 10,000 meters on the final day of the U.S. Olympic Trials in Kearns, Utah. Park finished in 13:58.93. Only the winner advanced to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
