Stanford wrestlers earn a pair of home victories


The Stanford wrestling team doubled its fun Sunday, beating Menlo College, 31-12, and Brown, 27-9, in a pair of nonconference contests at Burnham Pavilion. Menlo also lost to Brown, 40-6.

Redshirt freshman Connor Schram and redshirt sophomore Jim Wilson each won twice on the day.

Schram, who dropped his first career match at Oregon State on Saturday, bounced back with a 3-1 decision over Menlo's Brian Ha and an 8-3 decision against Brown's Zeke Salvo at 133 pounds. He moves to 6-1 on the year.

Wilson, ranked 14th nationally, edged Menlo's Eric Lopez 3-2 at 165 to earn his 20th win of the year. He then secured his fastest fall of the season, in 2:17, over Brown's L.J. Remillard. He sits at 21-4 overall and 5-1 in duals.

Redshirt sophomore Peter Galli, junior Dylan Morris and redshirt sophomore Ryan Davies also earned wins against the Oaks.

Galli snapped a four-match skid with a 5-0 decision over Sam Duchene at 157 pounds. Morris recorded his second fall of the season, making quick work of Zach Grove at 174 pounds.

Davies turned in his fourth major decision of the year, posting a 14-4 victory over Nick Karis at 184 pounds.

Against Brown, redshirt junior Evan Silver, ranked No. 14 in the nation, earned his 10th win of the season with an 8-3 decision over Billy Watterson at 125 pounds. At 141 pounds, true freshman Isaiah Locsin registered a fall in 2:27, his third of the year, against Anthony Finocchiaro.

Redshirt senior Garrett Schaner was also victorious Sunday, grinding out a 5-3 decision against Brown's William McDonald.

He trailed 2-1 after the first period, but recorded an escape and a takedown in the second to gain the lead. He finished with 2:02 of advantage time to improve to 13-11 overall and 3-3 in duals.

Nevills earned his second win of the day (he earned a forfeit win against Menlo) with a 3-1 decision over Brown's Ophir Bernstein at 184 pounds.

With no score after two periods, Nevills scored a reversal in the third to take a 2-0 lead. Bernstein was then awarded a point for an illegal move, but Nevills had racked up 3:52 of riding time for the win.

Nathan Butler finished things off for the Cardinal with a 7-0 decision over Sebastien Levin, who was wrestling up a weight class for the Bears. Butler leads the team with 22 wins on the season.

Stanford (5-2) remains at home to host Pac-12 foe Cal Poly and Air Force on Sunday in Maples Pavilion, with both duals to be televised live on the Pac-12 Networks.
