The No. 13 Sacred Heart women’s wrestling team went 2-2 at the Adrian (Michigan) Open with a big win over No. 4 McKendree University (Lebanon, Illinois) on Saturday in Adrian, Michigan.

The Pioneers beat Indiana Tech, 22-19 and stopped McKendree, 24-19. Sacred Heart fell to No. 14 Adrian College, 31-15 and finished the day with a 41-6 loss to No. 1 North Central College (Naperville, Illinois).

Sacred Heart used a late surge to defeat the No. 4 Bearcats. After rookie Ahsia Torres pinned seventh-ranked Pauline Granados at 109 pounds and Nohea Moniz won at 116 pounds, MU won the next three matches. A forfeit at 143 pounds and Madison Sandquist pin at 155 pounds put SHU ahead 19-16. The Bearcats won at 170 pounds but had to forfeit at 191 pounds, giving the Pioneers the win.

Sacred Heart found itself down 13-1 after four bouts in its opening match against Indiana Tech. Alexandra Fitzgerald started the comeback with a pin at 130 pounds. The Pioneers won the last four matches to cap the comeback, including a pin by Sandquist at 155 pounds and Cara Broadus (Plymouth) came through with a tech fall in the last match at 191 pounds to get the victory.

SHU couldn’t hold onto an early lead against the host Adrian. Aaliyah Payne-Parris picked up a tech fall over Miley Perkins at 101 pounds. Torres followed at 109 pounds with a pin of Angel Winters in 41 seconds. The Bulldogs would win the next six matches to build an insurmountable lead. Sixth-ranked Jacklyn Smith did come through with an 18-second pin at 170 pounds.

In the final contest of the day, the top-ranked Cardinal were too much for the Pioneers. The match started out well with Aaliyah Payne-Parris getting a pin over Karina Torres.
