RALEIGH, N.C. – The University of Virginia wrestling team dropped a 31-13 decision to the N.C. State Wolfpack this afternoon in an Atlantic Coast Conference dual match at Reynolds Coliseum. The Cavaliers pulled out to an early 6-0 lead but the Wolfpack would go on to win seven of the last nine bouts en route to an 18-point victory.

Virginia jumped out to an early 6-0 lead when Bob Seidel (Wall, N.J./Wall) pinned NCSU’s Ryan McCallum 4:10 into the match at 141. But N.C. State ran off 21 unanswered points to pull ahead 21-6 before UVa’s Jimi Massey (Williamsport, Md.Williamsport) recorded a 14-5 major decision victory over N.C. State’s Jon Godwin at 184 to make it a 21-10 contest. After the Wolfpack went ahead 24-10, the Cavaliers’ Ryan Painter (Rainelle, W.V./Rainelle) posted a 3-2 decision in the heavyweight class to pull Virginia within 24-13.
