YORK, Pa. (Dec. 3, 2016) – The USMMA wrestling team competed at the New Standard Corp. Invitational on Saturday, hosted by York College in Pennsylvania. The Mariners had two wrestlers register winning records on the day, led by sophomore Victor Raigoza (Orland, Calif.), who placed fourth overall in the 285-pound heavyweight bracket.
 
Raigoza wrestled to a 6-2 record, as he won his first bout of the day before falling in the championship Round of 16. In the wrestlebacks, the sophomore rattled off five straight wins to earn a spot in the third place match.
 
Freshman Joshua Glantzman (Allenwood, N.J.) came out of the day with a 4-2 record in the 174-pound bracket. Like Raigoza, Glantzman split his first to bouts. He then won three straight in the consolation bracket before ending his day in the first Round of Four in the wrestlbacks.
