Final Brackets

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. –The Virginia wrestling team had four podium finishes, including a first-place finish from 149-pound sophomore Michael Murphy (Lookout Mountain, Tenn.), at the Franklin & Marshall Open on Saturday.
In addition to the first-place finish from Murphy, the Cavaliers also got third-place finishes from freshman Benyamin Kamali (Lansing, Mich.) at 125 pounds, sophomore Louie Hayes (Orland Park, Ill.) at 133 pounds and freshman Victor Marcelli (Massillon, Ohio) at 184 pounds.

Sophomore Sam Martino (Colonial Heights, Va.) and freshman Justin McCoy (New Paris, Pa.) both ended their day with wins at 149 pounds and 157 pounds, respectively, but did not place as NCAA rules did not allow them to continue through the bracket as they had both hit their limit of six matches wrestled in a single day of competition.

Other Cavaliers in competition included a 3-2 afternoon for sophomore Sam Book (Fairfax, Va.) that included three bonus-point wins and a 2-2 afternoon for freshman Patrick McCormick (Poquoson, Va.) that included a pinfall at 133 pounds.
At 141 pounds, freshman Gray Hart (Richmond, Va.) went 3-2 on the afternoon, while sophomore Scott Kiyono (Poway, Calif.) went 3-2 with a pair of pinfalls.
