Redshirt freshman 174-pounder Keaton Subjeck also won twice on Sunday. He added to the Stanford lead with a 7-5 sudden victory decision over Cal Poly's Dominic Kastl. Trailing 4-2 heading into the third period, Subjeck scored an escape and a takedown to take a 5-3 lead, but Kastl escaped before time expired to force overtime.
