Wrestling Hosts Chattanooga Friday, Looks For First Team Victory

The Princeton wrestling team will look to build on both the energy created inside Dillon Gym last weekend and the experiences of a youthful roster when it takes on a talented Chattanooga squad Friday night in the Tigers' final home dual match of the 2012 portion of the schedule.

Princeton is currently 0-6 on the season, though it has already taken on three Top 25 teams, as well as two against teams currently ranked just outside the Top 25 in Rutgers and Bloomsburg. The Tigers were threatening to pull off an upset over No. 18 Binghamton last weekend, but a comeback win at 184 and back-to-back technical falls sent the Bearcats to a victory.

Still, there was plenty to be excited about coming off the weekend, including a pair of wins for freshman Kevin Moylan at 141. Moylan topped 17th-ranked Trevor Melde of Rutgers Saturday night, giving the Tigers their best individual win of the dual season.

Princeton also got home victories from Andrew Hirai (133), Seth Hazleton (157) and Ryan Callahan (174) during last Friday's home opener, which featured the most enthusiastic crowd head coach Chris Ayres could remember. He is hoping for the same this Friday, when Princeton will also hope to "Pin Down Cancer" for the Adam Frey Foundation.

Chattanooga is 3-2 on the season, and both of its losses have come to Top 25 teams, including one loss to second-ranked Iowa. The Mocs are led by seventh-ranked Nick Soto, who has 10 victories at 125.

Following Friday's match, Princeton will be off until the 50th Midlands Championships, held Dec. 29-30 at Northwestern.
