Story Links WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Purdue wrestling team got its first mating action of the 2022-23 season in their annual in-squad scrimmage Friday night at Wrestle-Offs at Holloway Gymnasium. The event saw 18 matches between 22 different wrestlers, five of which ended in bonus points wins and two that went into extra periods.
“Overall, I’ve seen a lot of good things from a lot of the guys,” said head coach Tony Ersland. “We need to see more consistency, aggression and authority in our matches in the future. Wrestling with your teammates can be difficult because they know what you want to do, but we need to see guys come in and perform more effectively in bigger bursts.”
Returning NCAA qualifiers Matt Ramos, Parker Filius and Kendall Coleman went undefeated that night, winning all four of their games with bonus points. The trio defeated their opponents 59-32. Sophomore Ramos took a 14-4 big decision win and red shirts senior Coleman won a 14-5 big decision in their only games of the evening. Filius struggled twice and made some big decisions of 18-7 and 15-7 after a team-high 12 takedowns.
Junior Trey Kruse took the only other bonus points win with his 13-1 major from Jaden Reynolds, using this first four-point near-fall period to build his lead in the second game of the event. Kruse would add another 3-2 tiebreaker later in the evening.
