EMORY, VA — Winning the first dual meet as a head coach will give St Andrews University head coach Robert Parland (University Christian ’13) a great feeling about his team’s trip to Emory & Henry College Wednesday night.
That’s because the Knights (1-4) were able to secure a 39-9 win over the hosts for Parland’s first victory in his new role as head coach.
St Andrews won the first eight matches, with pins from Jacob Arnold (141), Akazee Kum-Akab a sei (165) and Ty’quez Stuckey (174), a 20-7 major from Joshua Soliz at 157, and decisions from James Roberts (8-3 at 133) and Andrew Adams (7-2 at 141).
St Andrews is now off until December 12, when the Knights will compete in the University of Mount Olive Duals.
King 37, Allen 9: At Columbia SC, the Division II visitors came in and won eight matches against the hosts (1-5). One of those was at 141, where Allen’s Drevon Wallace (Palatka ’20, no headshot available from ) was matched up against the third-ranked 141 in Division II (per InterMat), the Tornado’s Christian Small, losing by technical fall, 18-0. Allen will next compete in Saturday’s Carolina Clash Duals.
