CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The No. 14 Virginia wrestling team opened the 2013-14 season Saturday with a trio of dual wins in a quad meet at Memorial Gymnasium. The Cavaliers scored wins over Anderson (46-3), Gardner-Webb (43-0) and West Virginia (41-6), winning 28 of the 30 individual matches in the process.
"I'm really pleased with how our guys wrestled today," Virginia head coach Steve Garland said. "They were amazing. We only lost one match all day, outside of the injury default. Our kids put on an amazing display and made a great statement. If you watched our team today, I don't think you want to wrestle us. They showed what the Virginia wrestling style is - we get on top of you and then dominate. I'm really proud of them for that."
Ranked 13th nationally in the preseason at 174 pounds by InterMat, Stephen Doty (R-Sr., St. Louis, Mo.) picked up three wins, including two pins, to highlight the day for the Cavaliers. Gus Sako (R-Jr., Cleveland, Ohio) recorded falls in both of his two matches in his first bouts since redshirting the 2012-13 season.
Nineteen Virginia wrestlers saw action Saturday, with 18 picking up wins. Nineteen of the Cavaliers' 28 wins resulted in bonus points (11 falls, one forfeit, three tech falls, four major decisions).
Virginia won nine of 10 bouts against both Anderson and West Virginia. The Cavaliers swept all 10 matches against Gardner-Webb while racking up bonus points in six. UVa racked up five falls against Anderson and picked up three more against Gardner-Webb and WVU.
UVa heads to Salem, Va., next Sunday (Nov. 10) for the Hokie Duals, where the Cavaliers will face VMI (9 a.m.), No. 20 Wisconsin (11 a.m.) and Kent State (1 p.m.). UVa's next home bout is Sunday, Nov. 24, when the Cavaliers battle No. 8 Virginia Tech at 1 p.m. at John Paul Jones Arena.
