Baker vs OKC Wrestling Dual

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University wrestling team nearly pulled off its second biggest upset of the season Wednesday evening, but it wasn’t meant to be as Oklahoma City pulled away in the mid-matches to take an 18-15 victory.

AJ Gassman put the Wildcats on the board first in the 133-pound match with a 8-3 decision over Alvie Killingsworth. Phil Henes added a 6-0 victory in the 141-pound match and third-ranked Jarell Price rolled to a 6-0 victory in the 149-pound match.

184-pound Robert Shadrach claimed an 8-3 victory over Teagan Franco and No. 12 Brandon Gebhardt won a thrilling double overtime match at heavyweight with a 4-1 victory.

“Coming off an emotional victory in the Kansas Cup, I was very proud of the way the kids performed tonight,” said head Baker wrestling coach Jimmy May.

Baker returns to action this weekend at the Missouri Valley College Invitational.
