Carolina Grapplers Sweep Through Lone Star Duals

Jan. 6, 2007

SOUTH GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS - Senior All-America Evan Sola, junior Drew Forshey and sophomore Vincent Ramirez each went unbeaten Saturday to lead North Carolina to three victories at the Lone Star Duals at the South Grand Prairie High School Coliseum. The Tar Heels defeated Utah Valley State (36-9), Boise State (25-15) and Northern Colorado (26-13) to even their dual record at 3-3 on the season.

Sola was dominant at 133 pounds with a pin, a technical fall and a major decision to improve to 7-1 on the season. He now has 109 career wins and moved past head coach C.D. Mock into sixth place on Carolina¹s all-time list Saturday.

Ramirez sandwiched a pair of tight victories around a pin against Boise State at 149 to move to 9-4 on the year. Forshey picked up a win via forfeit in the opener and followed with two more wins to move to 10-6 this season.

Carolina was also unbeaten at 165, where Keegan Mueller and Ben Fiacco combined for three wins, and at 197, where Dennis Drury and David Dashiell, who made his first appearance of the season, posted three victories.

The Tar Heels opened the day with wins in six of the seven contested bouts against Utah Valley State and added a pair of forfeits in the convincing 36-9 victory. Carolina picked up big points with a pin from Sola of the Wolverines¹ Alex Smith in just 1:04, and Mueller (165), and redshirt freshmen Robert McCarthy (184) and Drury (197) each tacked on major decisions in the win over Utah Valley State.


Carolina followed with the 25-15 victory over Boise State in which the Tar Heels opened up a big lead with one pin, one technical fall and one major decision over the first four bouts. After a major decision by junior Drew Forshey (125) and a technical fall by Sola, Ramirez followed two bouts later with a pin of BSU¹s Tommy Owen in 5:38 to extend the Carolina lead to 18-0. Drury added his second major decision on the afternoon later in the bout.

Against Northern Colorado, Forshey, Sola and Ramirez again got the Tar Heels off to a quick start. Sola had the big result with a 15-1 major decision against Kyle Kaiser. Dashiell added a 13-2 major decision over Calen Nicholl at 197 in his first bout of the season, and heavyweight Spencer Nadolsky added his second forfeit win of the day to cap the victory.

Carolina is back in action next Saturday, Jan. 13 at Maryland against the Terrapins and Illinois in dual action.
