Wrestlers Goeres, Lister bow out at NCAA Championship
March 23, 2011Tweet
Binghamton wrestling ended a short stay at the NCAA Championship with its final two wrestlers suffering consolation defeats March 18 at the Wells Fargo Center. Despite sending a record-tying six individuals to the championship, Binghamton struggled to duplicate last year’s successful run as the half-dozen wrestlers won just two of 14 matches.
On a bad ankle, junior 165-pound Justin Lister (23-8) was no match for 11th-seeded Aaron Janssen of Iowa, losing 23-8 in his final match. Lister injured his ankle in a March 17 loss to top-seeded Jordan Burrows of Nebraska and was barely able to put weight on the leg. He went 1-2 at the championship, unable to repeat last year’s remarkable fourth-place, All-America showing.
Senior 141-pound Anwar Goeres (25-10) lost 6-4 to unseeded Michael Mangrum of Oregon State in a match he seemed to have control of. After a scoreless first period, Goeres rode Mangrum for the entire second period and then on bottom to start the third, reversed Mangrum to go ahead, 2-0 with riding. But with less than a minute to go in the bout, Mangrum put Goeres on his back and recorded three back points and Goeres ran out of time. Goeres went 1-2 at the NCAA Championship.
