Beavers Battle In Annual Intrasquad
Nov. 10, 2001
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Casey Horn recorded a pair of pins at 141 pounds as Oregon State's wrestlers held their annual Intrasquad Meet on Saturday morning in Gill Coliseum. Horn was one of nine Beavers to sweep best-of-three series during the meet.
OSU opens the regular season next Saturday at the Southern Oregon Open. The Beavers begin their home schedule Nov. 23 with the Oregon State Duals, meeting Portland State, Cal State-Fullerton and Embry Riddle starting at noon.
Along with Horn, others winning their best-of-three matches were 125-pounder Ale DeLaPena, 133-pounder Nathan Navarro, 157-pounder Ryan LaDouceur, 165-pounder Scotty Nelson, 174-pounder Nathan Coy, 184-pounder Isaac Weber, 197-pounder Jason Lovell and heavyweight Jason Cooley.
'The first matches, the guys were a little tentative,' OSU head coach Joe Wells said. 'In the second go-round, they opened up a little bit and got after it better.'
OSU 165-pounder Jed Pennell sat out the meet completing rehabilitaiton from a minor injury but will return to action at the Southern Oregon Open. Saturday's matches did not set the Beavers' lineup, as Oregon State can enter a number of wrestlers at each weight next weekend, OSU is also likely to vary its lineup in the OSU Duals before going to Arizona State on Nov. 29 and the Las Vegas Collegiate on Nov. 30-Dec. 1.
