SDSU 24, West Virginia 9
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Senior 174-pounder David Kocer won his 100th career match and the South Dakota State University wrestling team set a school record with its 13th consecutive dual victory, defeating West Virginia, 24-9, Sunday afternoon at WVU Coliseum.
The 12th-ranked Jackrabbits improved to 13-2 overall and remained unbeaten in Big 12 Conference duals with a 7-0 mark. West Virginia fell to 5-6 overall and 4-4 against Big 12 opponents.
A Wagner native, Kocer started a streak of four consecutive Jackrabbit victories to close out the match. Leading 11-9 on the team scoreboard, Kocer recorded the last of three major decisions on the afternoon by SDSU as he defeated the Mountaineers’ Parker VonEgidy, 10-2.
Kocer is the 14th Jackrabbit to reach 100 career wins, and only the second in the Division I era.
The Jackrabbits close out the dual portion of their schedule Friday (Feb. 16) by hosting North Dakota State. The annual Battle for the Border Bell is slated to start at 7 p.m. at Frost Arena.
