Purple Raider Open recap: Patrick, Holcomb take Silver, 7 Bulls Place

While much attention has been paid recently to the main lineup of UB Wrestling, there are guys that are taking a redshirt season that are still gaining valuable experience in open competitions throughout the season. Today, eleven Bulls took part in the Purple Raider Open with 7 placing highlighted by runner-up finishes from Justin Patrick and Derek Holcomb.

Patrick stormed through the competition at 125 pounds, earning 3 decision victories and a major decision victory before bowing out of the tournament before the 1st place match due to medical reasons. With his 4 win performance Patrick improved to 25-6 in his redshirt season.

Derek Holcomb won by major decision over Michigan State's Logan Ritchie in the semifinals at 165 pounds to advance to the gold medal match where he was defeated by Kent State's Jaroid James.

In addition to Patrick and Holcomb, Nate Rose, Nolan Terrance, and Ryan Kromer all reached the semifinals in their respective brackets. Rose withdrew due to medical reasons after his semifinal match and finished in 6th place, Terrance placed 6th and Kromer 3rd.
