Nic Bedelyon & Brendan Barlow, Wrestling
The classmates both joined Kent State wrestling's 100-career-victory club last Wednesday (Dec. 21) in DeKalb, Ill., as the Golden Flashes swept a pair of dual meets in dominant fashion Wednesday at Northern Illinois' Convocation Center. Kent State opened Mid-American Conference competition with a 29-6 victory over the host Huskies followed by a 43-6 thumping of Cleveland State. In all, Kent State won 17-of-20 matches on the day.
Bedelyon helped Kent State defeat the Huskies courtesy of a 13-5 major decision over No. 19 Nick Smith. Barlow put an exclamation point on Kent State's victory over Cleveland State with a first period pin of Rock Davis.
The Golden Flashes return to action Thursday (Dec. 29) at Lock Haven's Mat Town Invitational.
