ANNAPOLIS, Md.. -- The Wisconsin Badgers wrestling team was powered by three first-place finishes, two second-place finishes and two third-place finishes at Wesley Brown Field House in the Navy Classic on Saturday. The Badgers scored 164 team points in the 13-team field, well ahead of second-place Navy’s 106.5.

Redshirt freshman Ryan Taylor has surprised many so far in the young 2013-14 season, and the Fayette County, Ohio, native was at his best Saturday. He took the 125 lbs., title by recording two major decisions, a fall and two decision wins. He beat Princeton’s Garrett Frey by decision in the championship, 9-4.

Veterans No. 2 Tyler Graff (133 lbs.) and No. 6 Connor Medbery (Hwt.) were also at their best on the day. Graff had no trouble flying through the 133 lbs., individual bracket and won every match by at least eight points. He recorded three technical falls in his first three matches and won his final two matches by major decision. He defeated West Virginia’s No. 17 Nathan Pennesi 16-4 in the championship. The senior now sits at 13-0 on the year.

Medbery found similar success in the heavyweight bracket. He also started out with two technical fall victories before winning by decision in his final three matches. He beat Ohio’s No. 9 Jeremy Johnson by decision, 8-2, to wrap up the title and also improve to 13-0 on the season.

No. 6 Isaac Jordan (157 lbs.) and No. 11 Jackson Hein (184 lbs.) gave UW its two second-place finishes. Jordan ran out to a quick start by pinning Princeton’s Joshua Ellis and winning by technical fall over West Virginia’s Roman Perryman in the second round. He lost to Kent State’s No. 12 Ian Miller by decision, 10-7, in the championship.

Hein won his first three matches by decision before falling to Brown’s Ophir Bernstein by decision, 3-2. 

Scott Liegel (174 lbs.) and Timmy McCall (197 lbs.) were the two third-place finishers for UW.

The Badgers will get back into action Saturday, Nov. 30, at Northern Iowa. The dual is set to begin at 7 p.m. (CT).
