Beavers Set Lineup In Intrasquad Meet

Nov. 14, 2004

CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State decided its starting wrestling lineup on Saturday afternoon as the Beavers held their annual Intrasquad Meet at Gill Coliseum.

Winning the best of three match ups to secure starting spots entering the new season were sophomore 125-pounder Eric Stevenson, sophomore 133-pounder Bobby Pfennigs, junior 141-pounder Emery McReynolds, junior 157-pounder Tony Hook, junior 165-pounder Anthony Weber, sophomore 174-pounder Jeremy Larson, junior 184-pounder Dan Pitsch, freshman 197-pounder Travis Gardener, and sophomore heavyweight Ty Watterson.

While the Beavers have no seniors in their starting lineup until 165-pounder Matt Ellis returns from an injury, they are going to be looking for some leadership from Stevenson, Hook, Pitsch, and Watterson who were all starters a year ago.

'We had a lot of close matches today,' said head coach Joe Wells 'I saw a lot of good things today, but I also saw some things we need to work on. We need to look for more pins.'

'We are just looking forward to wrestling someone besides ourselves.'

Oregon State will compete in the Southern Oregon Open in Medford, Ore., next Saturday. The Beavers will open their home season against Oregon on Dec. 10.
