New Mexico Highlands 125-pounder Seth Wright upset the No. 1-ranked wrestler in NCAA Division II in a competitive but ultimately unsuccessful dual meet Friday at Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo.
The Grizzlies, rated No. 10 in the nation, won the dual 29-15.
Wright’s effort in a 9-4 decision over national finals regular Arsenia Barksdale was one highlight for the Cowboys and coach Doug Moses, who returned to the mats after the holiday break. Wright is now 5-1 overall.
