ALFRED, N.Y. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford wrestling team put together a strong showing at the Alfred State Pioneer Open Saturday.

"I was extremely happy with the way that we performed today," Head Coach Colin Johnston said. "To have two guys win the tournament and six guys place in the tournament, that makes a really good day."
 
Derek Ridgeway captured the 165 weight class win while Mitch Dowd won the 197 weight class.
 
Colton Davis (133), Quentin Ellis (184) and Daniel Sibel (197) finished second in their weight classes.
 
Sibel and Dowd were the lone competitors in the 197 class, and Down defeated him, 9-1.
 
Neiko Kuntz (141), Victor Elias (157) and Nathan Powley (174) each placed third in their weight classes.
 
Up next, Pitt-Bradford will compete in the Lycoming Duals Monday, Dec. 17.
 
Due to technical difficulties, full results won't be available until Sunday.
