WAYNESBURG, Pa.--The Adrian College men's wrestling team opened the 2020 portion of its schedule on Saturday at the Waynesburg College Invitational, where the Bulldogs had four placers led by sophomore Isaiah Espinoza who was the 285-pound champion. The Bulldogs collected 62.5 points to wind up eighth out of 16 schools.

Espinoza pinned three opponents on the way--including a 34-second victory to start his afternoon--on the way to beating Rocky McGeary of the hometown team in a 5-1 decision for the 285 title bout. He finished with a 5-0 record.

At 197, junior Donald Moses earned fifth place with a 3-2 mark. He finished his day with a 7-1 decision over Ohio Northern's Logan Painter.

Classmate Derick Duvall went 4-3 and ended up in sixth place. Duvall pinned Raheem Clemons of Washington & Jefferson College in 3 minutes and 54 seconds to reach the 165 quarterfinals, where he lost a tough 7-5 decision to Jordan Hardrick from Ohio Northern. Duvall's final two losses were due to medical forfeit.

Junior Noah Nieman also finished in sixth place at 149, winning his first three bouts before losing his next three via medical forfeit. His action started with a 4:30 fall against Brock Drahus (Alvernia) in the opener.

Ohio Northern won the team title with 137 points over NCAA Division II Lake Erie College (81.5). Adrian finished ahead of NCAA II Fairmont State, a couple of junior colleges and Division I Maryland-Baltimore County.

Adrian has its Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association opener on Tuesday (7 p.m.) at Olivet.
