Beavers Take 2nd at Reno TOC

Reno, Nev. – Oregon State junior 133-pounder Joey Palmer won the lone individual title and the Beavers tied Stanford for second place behind Wyoming on Sunday at the Reno Tournament of Champions.

Palmer went 5-0 for the 17th-ranked Beavers to take home the top prize in his weight class. He defeated Jade Rauser of Utah Valley State 6-4 in sudden victory in the title bout.

Seniors Alex Elder (157) and Taylor Meeks (184) and redshirt freshman Cody Crawford (197) went 4-1 and placed second. Redshirt freshman Jordan Henrickson (149) placed third and junior Seth Thomas (165) and redshirt freshman Jack Hathaway (133) took fifth.

Freshman Ronnie Bresser (125) placed sixth after an injury kept him out of the consolation rounds following a loss in the semifinals.

The Beavers finished just behind Wyoming; final team scores were not available.  The teams meet again in Laramie on Feb. 13, 2015.

OSU (3-0, 2-0 Pac-12) will compete at the Aloha Open in Honolulu on Dec. 30 before taking a short break. It resumes Pac-12 action on Jan. 10 with a home dual against Stanford.
