PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—The Arizona State wrestling team posted a strong effort at Sunday’s Keystone Classic, with five Sun Devils recording podium finishes, including redshirt junior Kyle Colling’s championship in the heavyweight bracket.

As the No. 3 seed, Colling started the day with a tech fall victory over Harvard’s David Ng before he pinned No. 6 seed Denzel Dejournette of Appalachian St in 5:53. The Arcade, N.Y. native then pinned Pittsburgh’s Mike Gregory in 1:57 before he defeated the No. 1 seed and No. 9-ranked (AWN) Adam Chalfant of Indiana for the heavyweight title.

Colling is now 8-0 this season, and is the only undefeated Sun Devil in both duals and tournaments.

At 174, redshirt junior Kevin Radford, the No. 4 seed of the bracket, dropped only one match on the day for a third-place finish, defeating No. 5 seed Colin Hedash of Appalachian State in a 7-3 decision. Radford also defeated the No. 6 seed, Connor Brennan of Rider in a 3-1 decision before taking down the No. 3 seed, Mike Dessino of Bloomsburg in a 3-2 decision.

Radford’s win over Dessino comes two days after he dropped a 6-4, sudden victory decision in Friday’s dual at Bloomsburg.

The Sun Devils’ second third-place finish came at 184 as sophomore Blake Stauffer made his debut this season as the No. 5 seed. After falling to Harvard’s No. 4 seed Cameron Croy in the second round in a 4-1 decision, Stauffer defeated him in the third-place rematch in a 6-2 decision.

At 165, sophomore Ray Waters tallied four wins on the day for a fourth-place overall finish. Waters racked up two pins and a major decision on the day, defeating Matthew Rubin of Boston University in 6:12 and Harvard’s Colton Peppleman in 3:49. Waters’ major decision came in the third round of the consolation bracket as he defeated No. 5 seed Zac Strickland of Appalachian State, 12-4.

Sophomore Matt Kraus placed fifth in the 141 bracket as he recorded a 6-2 record on the day, the most wins for any Sun Devil, for a fifth place finish. Kraus picked up a 3-2 decision over American’s Tom Page before falling to the consolation bracket, where he picked up three decisions and one major decision over Indiana’s Trevor Moody (10-1) en route to the match for fifth overall.

As a team, the Sun Devils picked up 84 points for fifth. Bloomsburg came in first with 117 points on the day.

ASU is back in action on the first weekend of December, traveling to Las Vegas on Dec. 6-7 for the Las Vegas Invite.
