Chris Brown Williamsport, Pa. - January 9, 2009 - The Springfield College wrestling team dropped its first match of the 2009 Budd Whitehill Duals to host Lycoming College, 18-13, on Friday morning before downing Case Western, 36-12, in the afternoon. In the Pride's final match of the day, Springfield cruised to a 33-10 win over Hunter.

Lycoming was seeded sixth in the tournament and is currently ranked 25th in the country. For the Pride, Chris Perry picked up a great win as he defeated Chris Dahlheimer, 8-5. Dahlheimer was currently ranked fifth in the country in the 165 pound weight class.

In the win over Case Western, the Pride recorded three pins as it picked up the 24-point win. Bill Schady needed little time to pick up the win at 197 as he pinned his opponent in just 59 seconds.

As the Pride picked up a 33-10 win over Hunter, there were several different faces in the lineup for head coach Daryl Arroyo. However, a familiar face in the lineup, senior Chris Brown, picked up his third win of the day as he pinned Arkadiy Levitin in 3:14.
