Virginia Tech came into the Lehigh Valley this afternoon and dominated a Mountain Hawk team that has been on a roll lately but looked mostly flat today. VT opened up the dual winning the first 4 bouts by pushing the pace before true freshman Josh Humphreys put a stop to the slide at 157. The upper weights featured many ranked match ups. In the battle of childhood friends Jordan Kutler bounced back from a loss to Zahid Valencia and knocked off David McFadden. ZZ took out Ryan Preisch with a feet to back 4 point move in the 3rd period. Tom Sleigh took out an undersized Chris Weiler who is back on the move to 197 for the rest of the season, unless a seeming injury to Preisch shuffles things up even further. Jordan Wood won a tactical match with former Edinboro big man Billy Miller.
At intermission there was a girl’s freestyle match between a PA and NJ stud.
