Osage picks up sweep over Nevada and Bolivar
School of the Osage has yet to taste defeat in duals this season.
The Indians were in Nevada Thursday night for a tri-meet with the host Tigers and Bolivar and picked up two more wins to remain unbeaten on the season at 8-0. Osage cruised past Nevada 60-18 and took down Bolivar 39-36.
Up first was Nevada and after trailing 12-0 early, Osage's Ryan Schepers put the Indians on the board with a pin in the 120-pound match. Mason Dulle (132), Corey Hubkey (138), Chase Cordia (145), Aaron Cuddy (152), Jack Creasy (160), Rudy Escobar (170) and Shane Thomas (220) also picked up pins while Jesse Schillinger (182) captured a 5-3 decision, Connor Arrowood (195) won a 7-3 decision and Kody Dowell (126) went uncontested.
The showdown with the Liberators was not an easy one, but Osage prevailed and it began with Schepers once again who earned another fall in the 120-pound match. Dowell (126), Dulle (132), Cordia (145), and Creasy all earned pins for the Indians and Schillinger (182) picked up a 5-2 decision, Arrowood (195) took a hard-fought 2-0 decision and Thomas (220) finished his night with a 13-8 decision.
