#NextLevel: Dec 15 Results

PEMBROKE, NC — After what had to feel like an eternity since last competition, NCAA Division II teams slowly began to make their way back toward it this week.

One such DII match with local implications was at UNC-Pembroke Wednesday night, as the host Braves took down Belmont Abbey, 26-16.

Nate Golmon

The Braves led the dual halfway through, 11-7, thanks in part to Nate Golmon (Pace ’19). Competing at 157, Golmon took a 5-3 decision over Belmont Abbey’s Matthew Sloan.

Wednesday night was UNCP’s first and last dual in the 2020 portion of the Braves’ calendar; they’ll be back at home on Jan. 7 to host Emmanuel in a single dual (should be noted that we have UNC-Pembroke at St Thomas in a New Year’s Day dual per initial schedules posted by the colleges).

Winter Clash Duals: At Marshall MO, Cumberland-TN (10th ranked by InterMat in NAIA) went 2-2 in duals, shutting out Missouri Baptist (58-0) and turning back Texas Wesleyan (27-15).

The Phoenix fell to #1 Grand View (31-15) and #11 and host Missouri Valley (19-18).

Kaz Maia

Kaz Maia (Flagler Palm Coast ’16, 6th at 149) had a hand in two outcomes, winning by forfeit in the Missouri Baptist dual and contributing one of two Phoenix pins over Grand View, where he pinned Trevor Anderson in 3:33.
