IU wrestling falls to Michigan State

IU wrestling lost 18-16 to Michigan State on Saturday during IU’s final regular season Big Ten match of the season before next month’s Big Ten Championship.

Freshman Trevor Moody opened the match against the Spartans with a 4-2 decision win against Michigan State’s Brian Gibbs at 141 pounds. The win was Gibbs’ second consecutive Big Ten victory.

Junior Taylor Walsh climbed one step closer to becoming IU’s all-time pins leader by pinning Michigan State’s Roger Wildmo. Walsh fell behind to his foe 2-0 early but managed to pin Wildmo at the one minute 40 seconds mark.

Walsh’s pin was his 45th during his career, putting up two behind Viktor Sveda’s all-time pins record of 47. The pin was Walsh’s 24th of the season, adding to his school-record for pins in a season.

In the heavyweight matchup between IU’s No. 4 Adam Chalfant and Michigan State’s No. 6 Mike McClure, Chalfant defeated McClure 5-1.

IU next travels on Saturday to Edwardsville, Ill., for its final matches of the regular season before the Big Ten Tournament.
