    Ryan Henrickson went 3-2 in the 160-pound class to lead the Marksmen. Two of his victories came via pins.

    The Bulldogs used 1-2-1-1 and 2-2-1 full-court presses in the first half as they built a 30-13 lead.
    Sarah Powers led the Bulldogs with 30 points. She hit 10 field goals, including three three-pointers, and 7 of 10 free throws.
