Two UB wrestlers eliminated in NCAAs


The University at Buffalo’s two remaining wrestlers in the NCAA Championships were eliminated from the competition on Friday.

Joe Ariola, wrestling at 184 pounds, lost a close decision to Jeff Koepke of Illinois in the consolation round. A late stalling call against Ariola cost him a point and gave Koepke a 2-1 decision.

Meanwhile, Colt Cotten of the Bulls dropped a 5-2 decision to Mitch Finesilver of Duke, who was ranked 14th in the 149-pound weight class.

The competition was held at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
