America’s Team was back on the mat yesterday, and the results were worth the wait.
My favorite part of the newsletter is talking about our guys and their results. It is that time of year. I won’t get to everyone, but will do my best to highlight some of the better performances from Sunday.
We had a great day!
Ethan Berginc announced his presence with authority, going 3-0 and knocking off a returning All American in the process. This is the first of many big wins for Ethan- be sure you tell all your wrestling friends to watch his ascent through the rankings,
Charlie Farmer also had two dominant victories to start his career.
Rich Treanor had a big pin over a ranked opponent to highlight a nice performance.
Julian Sanchez looked solid in his debut with a couple of Ws and a tight, slightly controversial OT loss.
Logan Brown, Matt Williams and Thomas Deck all had similar results in the scramble format. This weight looks pretty wide open right now.
Nate Lukez went 3-0, attacking with his signature relentless pressure.
Dalton Harkins had a nice OT win over a nationally ranked wrestler.
Ben Pasiuk was unbeaten and untested in his season debut.
Sahm lost a close bout to a top 10 opponent and rebounded with a solid win.
Kyle Swartz, Danny Lawrence, Wolfgang Frable, Eli Pack and Tom Godbee went a combined 10-1 for the day.
Kade Carlson went unbeaten, including an OT win.
Odds and Ends
-We went 6-1 in overtime bouts
- We beat Oregon State starters (from their dual with Lehigh) at 125, 133, 149, 165, 174 and lost in OT at 141.
- 31 different Black Knights won matches

I’ll wrap up by sharing with you a message I try to deliver to every prospective Black Knight that comes to campus.
A lot of schools talk about exclusivity. They talk about alumni network. They talk about being a part of something bigger than yourself. But remember this.
There are 14 Big Ten schools. Math seems to be an issue for them.
There are 8 Ivy League schools.
But there is only one West Point.
Thanks for being a part of it.
