ATHERTON, Calif. - Menlo College picked up a pair of impressive victories over ranked opponents before falling to a third to finish 2-1 on the day at its own Menlo Duals on Saturday inside Haynes-Prim Pavilion.
 

The victories came at just the right time for an unproven Oaks squad that suffered humbling losses to top foes in its last two duels over a month ago. Menlo opened Saturday's event with a 24-16 victory against No. 8 Oklahoma City prior to knocking off No. 15 Embry Riddle (Az.) 23-19. In its final duel of the day, the Oaks fell to No. 20 Simon Fraser 27-12.

 

Freshman 125-pounder Kiyoshi Kawano impressively led Menlo with a 3-0 record, winning his first match by a 14-7 decision before recording pins in his ensuing matches. At 141 pounds, sophomore Christian Martinez went 2-1, Cody Gibson was 2-1 at 149, Josh Emmett was 2-1 at 157, and Mike Cavanaugh finished 2-1 at 174.

 

Hanna Malak went 1-2 on the day, but his lone win proved to be essential. Menlo led Embry Riddle 20-19 heading into the final match of the duel with the outcome of the heavyweight contest set to decide the final team result. Malak stepped up to the occasion, scoring all his points in the opening period to defeat Jonny Perez 6-3 and earn the duel victory for the Oaks.

 

Adrian Gonzales (165), Sean Weeks (184), and Travis Olson (197) each won one match for Menlo.

 

No. 5 Southern Oregon was the only team to end the day without a loss, defeating No. 12 Cumberland 28-6 and Oklahoma City 28-12. Simon Fraser, along with Menlo, finished 1-2 with a 34-18 victory over NCWA No.2 Central Florida and a 24-16 loss to Cumberland. In other matches, Embry Riddle defeated Pacific (Ore.) 41-6 while Central Florida knocked off Pacific 31-13.

 

Menlo's weekend of wrestling continues on Sunday with the Menlo Invite, beginning at 9 a.m. on the Menlo College campus inside Haynes-Prim Pavilion.
