LARAMIE, Wyoming - Utah Valley State wrestler Rodney Sager
rolled through the competition on Sunday, winning the 20 &
Under division of the Cowboy Open at 133 lbs. Sager, who
is redshirting this year, wrestled unattached and went 5-0
on the day, beating Nick Mammeliz of Western Wyoming 7-5
in the final.
The win by Sager shows the depth the Wolverines have at
133 lbs. after Senior Erkin Tadzhimetov won the Cyclone
Open in Fort Dodge, Iowa on Saturday.
Three other Wolverines also competed unattached in the
event. Sophomore Devin Siddoway went 2-2 in the open
division while freshmen Kyle Burnett and Nick Swenson went
1-2 and 0-1, respectively. Both Burnett and Swenson
wrestled in the 20 & under division.
Utah Valley State will travel to Greeley, Colorado for the
Old Chicago/Northern Colorado Open this Saturday. Their
first home dual of the season will be December 10th
against Western State.
