BROCKPORT, N.Y. - Junior Josh Asper won most outstanding wrestler and redshirt sophomore Christian Boley captured his first individual title of the season as the Maryland wrestling team finished second at the Brockport/Oklahoma Invitational on Saturday. Seven different Terrapin wrestlers placed in the top-3 of their respective weight classes.

"Today was a great day," said head coach Kerry McCoy. "We had some ups and downs, but overall I am happy with the team's performance. Christian and Josh did a great job, but everyone contributed. Spencer and Geoffrey fought back after tough losses, and we improved from last year's performance.  We will continue to build."

The Terps won two individual titles on the day. Asper, ranked third by InterMat, improved to 7-0 on the season and won the 165-pound championship over No. 6 Scott Winston of Rutgers. In the 197-pound title match, Boley defeated No. 19 Dan Rinaldi of Rutgers to improve to 6-0.

Senior Kyle John, ranked 15th, finished second at 157 pounds. John picked up two victories including one by fall over Rutgers' Joe McCauley 21 seconds into the match which is the fastest of his career and the 10th fastest fall in program history.

In addition to John, sophomore Shane Gentry and redshirt sophomore Jimmy Sheptock earned runner-up honors at 125 pounds and 174 pounds, respectively. Gentry won two matches, one by major decision and one by fall, before facing No. 3 Jarrod Patterson of Oklahoma in the final. Sheptock improved his record to 4-0 before losing a close final to No. 18 Greg Zannetti of Rutgers.

Sophomore Spencer Myers and freshman Geoffrey Alexander responded from early losses to finish third in their respective weight classes. Myers, ranked third at 285 pounds, was upset by Oklahoma's Kyle Colling in the quarterfinals. Myers rebounded by winning all four matches in the consolation draw including a victory over No. 16 Elijah Madison of Oklahoma.

Alexander gained a measure of revenge by knocking off Clarion's Joe Waltko in the third-place match after losing to Waltko in the quarterfinals of the main draw.

At the East Stroudsberg Open, freshman Shane Arechiga went 4-2 and finished fourth at 133 pounds. For complete results from the East Stroudsburg Open, clink the link at the top of the page.
