A trio of wrestlers helped lead the Cavaliers on the day as redshirt senior George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Ohio), redshirt sophomores Garrett Peppelman (Harrisburg, Pa.) and Will Schany (Blair, Neb.) all went 3-0 in the three dual meets. Graduate student Ray Bethea (Trenton, N.J.) also went undefeated in multiple outings as he won both of his bouts
