Charleston, S.C.-
The Citadel wrestling team completed action over the weekend when they hosted their annual season-opening tournament in The Citadel Open on Saturday at McAlister Field House.

The Bulldogs captured a pair of second-place finishes as freshman Kyle Casaletto and sophomore Kenneth Radford each placed as unattached wrestlers in the freshman-sophomore tournament. Casaletto went 4-1 on the afternoon at 134 pounds, falling to Appalachian State's Joe Morrison 3-2 in the final, while Radford went 3-1, dropping a 7-4 decision to Chattanooga's John Lampe in the 165-pound finals.

Also finding success at The Citadel Open was freshman Weston Beck at 134 pounds. Beck captured a third-place finish, going 5-1 and defeating Central Florida's Ashton Griffin 10-8 in the third-place match. Freshman Vincent Bellaran notched a fourth-place finish on the afternoon, going 5-2 and dropping a 6-4 decision to Limestone's Kyle Freiberg in the third-place bout.
 
Below are the results for all of The Citadel's wrestlers, both attached and unattached. Unattached wrestlers' results do not count toward official season results, but do toward NCAA qualification and matches against non-college competitors (NRVWC for example) do not count for official season results nor toward NCAA qualification. Matches against non-Division I wrestlers do not count toward NCAA qualification, either, but do count toward official season results.
