Bronco Wrestlers Grab Two Pac-10 Wins

Boise State's wrestling team served notice that it will be a force in the upcoming Pac-10 Championships. Tonight, the Broncos came through with two Pac-10 wins against Cal-Davis and Stanford in Taco Bell Arena.

The Boise State wrestling team collected two key Pac-10 victories tonight, edging UC-Davis 20-15 and downing Stanford 22-15.  Coach Greg Randall's team is now 10-3 on the season and 6-2 in the Pac-10.  The loss by Davis was its first Pac-10 defeat after reeling off six consecutive wins.


Jeff Newby, Andy Patrick and Cam Jones each won two matches to pace the Bronco attack.  With Boise State clinging to a one-point lead over Davis (16-15), Patrick came through with a 14-5 major decision over Broc Maffia.  When Patrick stepped on the mat against Stanford, the Broncos led 19-15, and he promptly posted a 2-1 win over Phillip Doerner.  Patrick is now 31-7 this season and is the seventh-ranked heavyweight in the nation by Intermat.    Newby defeated Davis' Shawn Brendle 3-1 and toppled Stanford's Matt Kim by a 6-1 count.  Jones pined Shawn Hartani of Davis and followed that up with a 12-10 win over Tyler Parker of Stanford.


Boise State will now prepare for the Pac-10 Championships, set for February 24-25 in Bakersfield, California.
