Stars go 2-0 in Women's wrestling duals


OKLAHOMA CITY ? Oklahoma City University swept its Women?s wrestling duals, defeating the U.S. Olympic Education Center 30-13 in the featured dual Saturday at Abe Lemons Arena.

The Stars, last year?s national runner-up, also beat Lindenwood (Mo.) 44-2 to improve to 2-0 on the year.

?We beat some of the best the United States has to offer,? OCU coach Archie Randall said. ?We?ll be even better the next time we meet as we get more of our wrestlers in the lineup.?

The U.S. Olympic Education Center forfeited at 44 kilograms, 59 and 72. OCU?s LeAnn Barney picked up a pin in her first action since suffering an injury that ended her season early in 2007-08. Barney finished Patricia Hill off in 50 seconds.

?Having LeAnn Barney back in the lineup is significant,? Randall said. ?She got a fall in her first match back against one of the top teams in the nation. She did a really good job.

?We had good matches throughout. Michaela Hutchison is the real deal. I?m pleased with our first time out.?

The Stars? Carrie Clark earned a fall over Lindsey Brooks in a matchup of national finalists from a year ago. Clark is the defending national champion at 82 kilos, while Brooks was runner-up at 72.

Against Lindenwood, Firen Gassman, Sara Hilliard, Hutchison and Waters stuck pins for OCU. OCU also benefited from three forfeits.

OCU competes Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Black-Blue Ranking Matches in Frisco, Texas.
