Nov. 19, 2003

San Francisco, Calif - The Stanford Cardinal (2-1) defeated the San Francisco State Gators (0-1) by a score of 25-10 in SFSU's home opener. Coach Steve Buddie led the Cardinal over 17th-ranked SFSU (NCAA-II). Matt Gentry tallied a major decision for the Cardinal, Ian Bork recorded a pin, and five other Cardinal wrestlers notched decisions.

Junior Matt Gentry (157) continued his strong performance this season, defeating Cleveland Berto by a score of 10-1 for a major decision. Ian Bork (197) pinned Luis Robles in the fifth minute. Freshman Tanner Gardner (125) narrowly defeated Joey Bareng by a score of 5-4.

In other matches, Brad Metzler (141) won 2-0 over Pacifico Garcia, Brian Perry (165) defeated Buck Meredith 10-3, Imad Kharbush (174) beat Jaime Alvarez 6-1, and John Garfinkel (184) won by a score of 6-0 over Danny Dahl.

The Stanford Cardinal wrestling team next competes on Saturday, November 22 at the California Open in Fullerton, CA. They then travel to Illinois in late December and Arizona in early January for a series of matches. The Cardinal's next home meet is not until January, 11 when California State, Bakersfield visits Burnham Pavilion.
