OSHKOSH - The UW-Eau Claire wrestling team improved its Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) dual meet record to 4-0 tonight with a 25-12 victory over UW-Oshkosh at the Kolf Sports Center.
The meet was originally supposed to take place Luxemburg-Casco High School, but was moved back to Oshkosh. The Blugolds are the only undefeated team in the WIAC and have an overall dual meet record of 11-4 and an overall record of 16-12. The Titans fall to a conference record of 1-4 and an overall dual meet record of 4-7.
The Blugolds won seven of the nine matches that they competed in. Andy Miller (So.-Appleton, WI/North) at 133 pounds pinned Chris Stratton in 5:42. Dave Vanevenhoven (Sr.-Appleton, WI/Kaukauna) at 149 pounds won by major decision over Morgan Sickinger by a score of 12-2.

Holforty has won his last eight matches.
Andy Johnston (Fr.-St. Cloud, MN/Tech) at 141 pounds narrowly defeated Derek Koenig by a score of 8-7. Johnson got pinned by Koenig earlier this season at the Cornell Matman Invitational.
