Stanford wrestlers earn medals at tournament


Nick Amuchastegui won four matches on Thursday to finish third and Ryan Mango earned a fourth-place medal at the Midlands Championships in Evanston, IL on Thursday night.

After opening the season with 14 consecutive wins, Amuchastegui dropped into the wrestleback after suffering his first loss. He made ups for that with four decisions, three by one point and one by two points. He beat Leigh's Austin Meys, 3-2, in the final match and is now 18-1 on the year.

Mango lost, 10-1, to Iowa's Matt McDonough in the semifinals of the 125-pound division, but rebounded with a 5-1 win over Oklahoma's Jarrod Patterson to reach the third-place match, where he lost to Missouri's Alan Waters, 3-2.

Freshman Dan Scherer dropped his first consolation bout, 7-4, to Leigh's Kadeem Samuels and was eliminated from the medal round in the 184-pound division.

Stanford travels down the El Camino Real to take on host Menlo College in a nonconference match a week from Saturday.
