CHICAGO – The University of Chicago wrestling team was back in action as hosts of the Chi-Town Invite on Sunday afternoon at Henry Crown Field House.

The four-mat invite saw Triton College and University of Dubuque come out for the round-robin format, with a total of 56 wrestlers in action. The Maroons ultimately came away with six weight class champions on the day, including senior Steve Bonsall (157 pounds), junior Will Britain (165 pounds), senior Kyle Peisker (174 pounds), sophomore Ben Sarasin (184 pounds), senior Nick Carola (197 pounds) and first-year Cole Fibranz (285 pounds).

“This was kind of a unique event where three teams brought their entire squads with the idea that each get a few matches to shake the rust off after the holidays,” said Head Coach Leo Kocher. “Although we established weight class winners, the limited number of matches in each weight class prevented us from establishing other placers.”
