Blagg leads Jayhawks to Ben McMullen Open title

They Jayhawks continued their opening weekend of home competition by hosting the Ben McMullen Open. The Jayhawks were coming off of two dual meet wins the night before and continued to wrestle well. Sophomore Tyler Blagg (West Branch, MI/Ogemaw Hts. HS) is a returning national qualifier for the Jayhawks and he finished 1st on Saturday. Tyler had in impressive win in the 174lbs finals, winning 16-1 over Joseph Vondrasek of Alma College.

Several other Jayhawks wrestled well at the Ben McMullen Open. 125 lb Freshman Dakota Greer (Morley, MI/Tri County HS) finished 3rd. “Dakota had a good tournament,” Head Coach James Tietema said. “He had a tough start Friday in the duals, but came back today and wrestled a lot better.” Other Jayhawks doing well were: 133 lb Sophomore Dylan Wilkins (Sparta HS) finished 6th, 149 lb Sophomore Jaycob Bechtol (Holt HS) finished 5th, 157 lb freshman Zack Young (Hesperia HS) finished 4th, 165 lb Sophomore Blake Ross (Reeths-Puffer HS) finished 3rd and 165 lbs Freshman Corbin Chommanivong (Holland HS)finished 6th.

“We have a lot of things to cover this week in practice,” said Coach Tietema. “We had a good start, but the freshman have just started to learn what college wrestling is about. There are a lot of adjustments to make.”

The Jayhawks will travel to Angola, Ind. next Saturday Nov. 10th to compete in the Trine Invitational.
