MARQUETTE, Mich. —Team USA faced Sweden in a dual Greco-Roman wrestling meet tonight at the Northern Michigan University Superior Dome. Team USA, which came out on top 14-5, was comprised of NMU Olympic Training Site athletes and athletes visiting NMU for the Superior International Wrestling Camp.
A highlight of the meet came from NMU-OTS wrestler Reese Dalton, who competed against Oscar Holmén in two separate matches during the competition at 71 kg. Dalton was the only member of Team USA to wrestle twice. He lost to Holmen during the first match 4-7, but he recovered during the second match, winning 4-0 by pin.
“He didn’t score in the first match because he wasn’t controlling any position,” said NMU-OTS assistant coach Andy Bisek. “He had time to adjust between the two matches. The second match was a fresh start. He had a beautiful head lock.”
The Superior International Wrestling Camp wraps up Saturday.
“The camp brings about 80 prospective students to campus. There’s a lot of guys here that I like and I’m excited to see them progress during the next few days,” Bisek added.
