YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Michigan State wrestling team opened the 2015-16 season on Saturday at the Eastern Michigan Duals. 

The Spartans began the day with a 30-6 loss to Utah Valley before falling to Ohio, 34-3. In the finale, MSU battled Clarion but lost to the Golden Eagles, 19-12.

In his first career action, red-shirt freshman Shwan Shadaia went 2-1 in MSU’s three duals at 184 pounds. Although he dropped a 3-0 decision to Ohio’s Will Sumner in his debut, he came back to defeat Ohio’s Dakota Sizemore, 6-0, and Clarion’s Dominic Rigous, 3-2.

Senior Joe Johnson also picked up two wins on the day at 157 pounds, topping Utah Valley’s Raider Lofthouse, 4-2, and Clarion’s Brodie Zacherl, 8-2.
