The Oswego State wrestling team had a stellar first day at the Budd Whitehill Division III Duals, held at Lycoming College on Friday.

Oswego opened the day by knocking off No. 18 Wesleyan University 21-17, slipped up 28-13 in its second matchup against The College of New Jersey before capping the day with a 28-14 triumph over Ohio Northern University. With the 2-1 afternoon, the Lakers are now 4-3 in duals on the year.

On Saturday, the Whitehill Duals will continue with Oswego facing familiar foe Cortland at 10:30 a.m. in the 5th place through 8th place bracket. On the other side of the bracket are Springfield College and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, one of which Oswego will compete against to conclude the weekend.
