PLYMOUTH, NH – Plymouth State College’s wrestling team won two of three matches Saturday in Hartford, Conn., defeating the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (38-12) and Southern Maine (22-0) but losing to host Trinity College (25-13).

The two wins improve PSC’s record to 10-7-1 overall under third-year coach Dave Carlson. The Panthers have one dual match remaining — next Thursday (Feb. 12) at UMass Lowell (7:00 p.m.) – before the New England Division III Championships on Feb. 21-22 at Bristol, RI.

Junior Todd Oljey (Byfield, MA) and senior Dave Lucia (Billerica, MA) were standouts for PSC, winning all three matches Saturday. Oljey won three times at 142 pounds, improving his individual record to 10-5, while Lucia went 3-0 in the heavyweight division to raise his record to 19-3.

Sophomores Mike DeRoehn (Warren, NH) and Shawn Kain (Lakeville, MA) each went 2-0 for the Panthers. DeRoehn, now 11-16, won twice at 134 pounds, including a pin in the Kings Point match. Kain won his bouts at 150 pounds to raise his mark to 12-13.

Junior Russ Pamulak (Indianola, IA) posted a 2-1 record Saturday at 177 pounds, improving his record to 24-9. Three other Panther wrestlers were 1-1 on the day – Nick Volpe (Holmdel, NJ) at 126, Ben Baker (Gardiner, ME) at 167, and Scot Padelford (Troy, ME) at 190.
