PSC Open Results

January 25th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Nine Plymouth State College wrestlers finished among the top four in their respective weight classes Saturday at the annual P.S.C Open Wrestling Tournament at Foley Gymnasium.
Wrestlers from 10 schools and several unattached wrestlers competed in the one-day tourney. No official team scores were kept, as schools were allowed multiple wrestlers in each weight class.

Senior Brian Borkowski (Sabattus, ME) led the way for Plymouth State. He won the title at 158 pounds and was selected the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler. He won all three of his matches in decisive fashion, improving to an impressive 20-0 this season.

Senior heavyweight Dave Lucia (Billerica, MA) was PSC’s next best finisher. He advanced to the finals before losing and raised his season record to 16-3. Three Panthers finished third in their divisions – junior Todd Oljey (Byfield, MA) at 142 pounds, sophomore Ben Baker (Gardiner, ME) at 167, and junior Russ Pamulak (Indianola, IA) at 177. Oljey’s record is now 6-4, Baker improves to 14-6, and Pamulak is 21-5.

The four PSC wrestlers who finished fourth include sophomore Shawn Kain (Lakeville, MA) at 150 pounds, senior Pete Marinilli (Stoughton, MA) at 167, junior Scot Padelford (Troy, ME) at 190, and junior Ryan Carr (Salem, NH) at heavyweight.

PSC, which was ranked fifth in New England before last Wednesday’s victory over second-ranked Norwich, hosts W.P.I. Wednesday (Jan. 28) in the final home wrestling match of the season at Foley Gymnasium (7:00 p.m.)
