WRESTLING

Beavs drop a dual at Michigan

Wrestling in the Joe Wells Classic, honoring the late OSU coach and Michigan assistant, the Beavers couldn’t stay close with No. 13 Wolverines and lost the dual 27-9 at Ann Arbor, Mich.

Ronnie Bresser (125), Joey Palmer (133) and Seth Thomas (165) won weight classes for Oregon State, which fell to 3-4 in duals. But Jack Hathaway’s loss at 141 hurt, as the Wolverines followed with a majority decision win and a pin to extend their lead.

Michigan heavyweight Adam Coon, the 2015 NCAA runner-up, beat Amarveer Dhesi 5-1 in the marquee match. Dhesi has lost three matches in a row after starting the season with a 14-match winning streak.

The Beavers face No. 16 Central Michigan on Saturday. The next home dual is against Wyoming on Jan. 16.
