BOONE, North Carolina - The first weekend of Sun Devil Wrestling's season is in the books and it was one to remember. ASU went to Appalachian State's Mountaineer Invitational/Open in Boone, North Carolina and left with eight weight-class titles. Weekend highlights included eight Devils going undefeated, 11 major wins, seven pins, No. 4 HWT Cohlton Schultz' three-straight pins, Julian Chlebove beating No. 16 Jared Van Vleet (Air Force), and No. 4 Kyle Parco's #ParcoBomb of Jonathan Millner in the 149 final.
