Jan. 30, 2017

AFTON, Wyo. – The Boise State wrestling team picked up a pair of victories at 174 and 184 pounds, but would ultimately lose to Wyoming (5-5, 2-1 Big 12), 32-6, Monday night.

In the team’s final away dual before the Pac-12 Championships, Boise State (1-7, 0-2 Pac-12) tied the score at 6-6 after the first three matches. Austin Dewey used a takedown in the final 20 seconds to pull out a 3-2 decision over Kyle Pope, and Kadyn Del Toro led from start to finish to win a 7-2 decision over Lucas Lovvorn.

The win was Dewey’s 21st of the season, a career high for wins in a season for the redshirt senior. Del Toro’s win improved him to 5-3 in dual matches.

The Broncos almost picked up another win at 197 pounds when Harley DiLulo nearly got a takedown in the waning seconds of his match against Nate Shaw. DiLulo ultimately fell, 6-5 after picking up a point for riding time. The Broncos would go onto to lose the next six matches – three by bonus point victories.

The dual, held at Star Valley High School in Afton, Wyo., was Boise State’s final nonconference dual of the season.  The Broncos will return to action, Friday at Taco Bell Arena as part of the Beauty and the Beast meet alongside the women’s gymnastics team.

Boise State will face Pac-12 opponent Oregon State in the Border War, while women’s gymnastics will face Southern Utah. Both events will start at 7 p.m. (MT).
