Swiderski and Davis shine at NCAA Championships

Penn State wrestlers Braeden Davis and Casey Swiderski both had impressive performances at the NCAA Wrestling Championships over the weekend. Swiderski, an Iowa State graduate, achieved All-American status by placing seventh in the 149-pound weight class, while Davis helped Penn State secure the national championship title.

Penn State dominated the tournament with a score of 155.5 points, well ahead of runner-up Michigan with 71 points. Iowa State also had a strong showing, finishing fifth with 64.5 points. Swiderski won his first two matches narrowly before being defeated by the top seed in the quarterfinals. He then bounced back to secure a seventh-place finish with a convincing victory. Davis, at 125 pounds, just missed out on becoming an All-American after being eliminated in the blood round.

In addition to their standout performances, Dundee graduates Stoney Buell and Ellie Sieler also represented Purdue and Michigan respectively at the national finals but came up short against tough competition.

In college softball action, Sieler had a strong performance at the plate while VanBrandt contributed to Indiana’s offense in a three-game series sweep of Whiteford graduate Ally VanBrandt and Michigan team swept by Monroe graduate Ellie Sieler and her Michigan team.

On the high school soccer front, Flat Rock secured a 1-0 victory over Wyandotte Roosevelt with Isabella Thomas scoring the lone goal off an assist from Megan Woelkers and goalkeeper Keola Botts recording a shutout. In freshman baseball action, Bedford staged a comeback to defeat Toledo St John 12-4 in their season opener with Jason Bryant and Brady Boisselle having two hits each while pitchers Landon Sparks and Evan Bullard delivered solid performances on the mound.
