Muskie Wrestling falls in home opener


The Muskingum University Wrestling Team fell in their home opener against Waynesburg 39-9 Thursday night.

The lone Muskie wins came from Jon Raugh at the 149 pound weight class, and Colton Richard at the 197 pound class.

Raugh’s win came by way of a 6-3 decision over Waynesburg’s DJ Grindle, while Richard recorded a third period fall over Joshua Sneeringer.

Raugh got his first win of the season after returning from missing all of last year due to a concussion.

The Muskies only surrendered one forfeit on the night, as the 157 pound weight class was left open due to an injury to Jonathan Muntz last weekend.

The loss puts the Muskies at 0-1 on the season. The team will return to action Dec. 5 when they travel to the Ohio Northern Tournament in Ada.
