NC State Defeats UNCG 19-14
Heavyweight Eloheim Palma defeated Peter Sturgeon 8-2 in the final bout of the night to lift NC State to a 19-14 Wednesday night at Reynolds Coliseum.

The victory lifted the Wolfpack to 6-11 on the season and snapped a four-match losing streak. NC State won five of the nine bouts, with one match being a double forfeit. The loss dropped the Spartans to 5-7.

Neither team had a wrestler available at 125 pounds, so the match started at 133, and freshman Dale Shull got the Wolfpack off to a fast startby pinning Casey Boyle. Shull worked Boyle for a takedown 18 seconds into the match and methodically worked him to his back, getting the pin at the 0:47 mark.
