CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – It was a dominant day on the mat for the Cavaliers as Virginia (4-2) went on the road and picked up a 34-11 win over No. 24 Chattanooga (2-2) at Maclellan Gym on Sunday (Dec. 4).
Virginia picked up bonus points in five of the first six matches, recording three pins and two tech falls to lock up the victory with four weight classes remaining in the match.
“I’m proud of this team right now,” said Virginia head coach Steve Garland. “They wrestled fantastically today. We were stingy defensively, won all the close ones, and scored bonus points early and often. We have been preaching to our team that when they get a guy near his back, they have to nail it down. They did that today.
“I can’t say enough good things. Winning a certain way matters, and we found ways to come back and win when needed and rack up points for the bonus when needed. This group is listening and trusting us, and that showed today.”
Freshman Jack Mueller (Dallas, Texas) again set the tone with his tech fall to start the match at 125 pounds before Will Mason (Virginia Beach, Va.) and George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Ohio) would both pin their opponents at 133 pounds and 141 pounds, respectively, to build the 17-0 lead for the Cavaliers.
Mueller improved to 10-0 on the season and has now recorded six tech falls and two pins in his 10 victories this season. DiCamillo is also undefeated at 7-0 on the year with three major decisions and two pins in his seven victories. Muller posted tech falls in both dual matches this weekend, while DiCamillo pinned both of his opponents.
Sam Krivus (Greensburg, Pa.) then picked up a decision at 149 pounds before Andrew Atkinson (Lynchburg, Va.) would add a tech fall at 157 pounds. Cam Harrell (Arnold, Md.) then pinned his opponent at 165 pounds to lock up the dual victory for Virginia.
Ray Bethea (Trenton, N.J.) capped the scoring for Virginia with a decision at 174 pounds. Chattanooga closed things out winning the last three weight classes for the final score of 34-11.
Virginia returns to action on Wednesday, Dec. 21, when the Cavaliers will face George Mason in a neutral site match in the Rumble on the River hosted at the St. Christopher’s school in Richmond, Va.
