HAMPTON, Va. – The Arizona State University wrestling team was eliminated from the competition at the 33rd Virginia Duals in Hampton, Va., on Saturday after a loss to Kent State, 26-12, in the second round of the consolation bracket.

The Sun Devils (7-6, 2-0 Pac-12) managed just wins in the dual against the Golden Flashes and dropped the first four matches of the competition to fall in a 14-0 hole early on. 

Codey Combs continued his impressive tournament as he got the Sun Devils on the board with a pin over Tommy Sasfy at 6:28 to bring ASU back within eight but it was too little, too late at that point. 

Blake Stauffer knocked of Sam Wheeler in the 174-pound match-up to remain undefeated in the tournament and improve to 20-2 and taking over the team’s best record in the process. 

Jake Meredith loss by fall to top-ranked Dustin Kilgore at 197 pounds effectively eliminated ASU from the competition.

ASU returns to competition this week in a pair of road duals, beginning with Utah Valley State on Friday at 7 p.m. MT in Orem, Utah.  The team will then look to improve upon its 2-0 record in conference play as it takes on Boise State on Sunday in Boise, Idaho, beginning at 2 p.m. MT.
