The University of Wyoming wrestling team had four competitors on the podium at the opening of the Cowboy Open in Laramie on Saturday.

Job Greenwood at £ 133, Tate Samuelson at 184 and Stephen Buchanan at 197 all won titles for the Cowboys, while Cooper Voorhees, who fought untied, took first place at 157.

“It was our first competition and we knocked off some rust and we saw that, but we still got the same good wins today.” UW head coach Mark Branch said in a press release: “It was good to see Job having such a good day and taking a signature win at the start of the season. He really fought an entire match and it was a hard-earned win. “

Greenwood defeated No. 8 Michael McGee 3-2 in the championship game. Samuelson won all three of his games in an impressive manner, outperforming his opponents 3-1. Buchanan, competing for the first time since his All America status last season, won from a pinfall, technical fall and an important decision. Voorhees went 4-0 that day.

The Cowboys also took second place from Jaron Jensen with 149, Cole Moody with 165, Hayden Hastings (Sheridan) with 174 and Brian Andrews with 285.

UW is back in action at the prestigious Cliff Keen Invitational in Las Vegas from Friday to Saturday.
