Feb. 26, 2017
PALO ALTO, Calif. - Redshirt senior Austin Dewey led the Boise State wrestling team with a runner-up finish at the 2017 Pac-12 Championships, Sunday at Maples Pavilion.
Dewey's runner-up finish at 174 pounds earns him a berth in the 2017 NCAA Championships, Mar. 16-18 in St. Louis, Mo. The Boise native made it to the finals with an upset victory over No. 18 ranked Peter Galli of Stanford in the semifinals.
In the finals, Dewey was pinned (2:30) by Arizona State's Zahid Valencia. Valencia is the nation's No. 1 ranked wrestler at 174 pounds.
In his first appearance at the Pac-12 Championships, junior Will Bardezbain rallied from an opening round lost to upset his next two opponents.
Bardezbain won a decision over No. 2 seed Keegan Calkins of Oregon State (18-12) to advance to the third place match. In the third place match he upset No. 15 nationally ranked and No. 1 seed Gabriel Townsell of Stanford to take third place.
Redshirt freshman Demetrius Romero finished fourth at 165 pounds after losing an 8-6 decision to Keaton Subjeck of Stanford. Romero and Subjeck were tied at 6-6 at the end of regulation, but Subjeck prevailed with a takedown in the first sudden victory overtime.
Kadyn Del Toro and Gabriel Gonzalez finished fifth at 184 pounds and heavyweight, respectively.
The Broncos finished fifth as a team with 79 points.
