Brad Metzler Top Cardinal Finisher at Aggie Open
Jan. 7, 2001
Fullerton, Calif. --
Freshman Brad Metzler (Omaha, NE/Westside) finished second in the 133 pound division at the Aggie Open today on the campus of UC Davis. Metzler previously recorded a third place finish at the California Open on November 12. Freshman Kenji Arai aided the Cardinal's showing with a fourth place finish in the 141 pound weight class. Today's tournament was open, so no team scores were kept.
Metzler recorded three straight wins after a first round bye to advance him to the finals for the 133 pound weight class where he lost 3-1 to Urijah Faber. Metzler recorded a technical fall, a major decision and a decision on his path to the finals.
Arai had a first round bye and then recorded a technical fall before Dallen Phillips (una.) sent him to the consolation bracket. Arai then tallied a major decision, a decision and a forfeit before succumbing to Leo Perez (una.).
The Cardinal resume its home season when the hosts of the Aggie Open, UC Davis, come to The Farm for a dual on Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. in Burnham Pavilion.
