Gophers wrestlers don’t disappoint at Northern Quad

As expected, the University of Minnesota wrestling team dominated during all three of its duals Saturday during the second annual Northern Quad at UCR Regional Sports Center.

 

The Gophers defeated Portland State (54-0), Northern Colorado (42-4) and North Dakota State University (35-6).

 

Local wrestlers also went undefeated at the Northern Quad.

 

Wabasha-Kellogg graduate Zach Sanders earned three victories at 125 pounds. Sanders’ best win came against Northern Colorado, when he defeated Tony Mustari 5-4. Mustari is ranked No. 20 in the nation at 125. Sanders also had a pin and a major decision.

 

Pine Island graduate Chris McPhail, competing to start at 197 for the Gophers, earned three victories. McPhail had a pair of pins and a technical fall.

 

“It felt good to be back in the area and have the fans cheering for me,” McPhail said. “I feel like I took a step in the right direction. I have a lot of confidence this year.”

 

The Gophers (3-0) are at the Las Vegas Invitational next weekend.
