Bradley defeated No. 17 ranked Oregon State’s Clayton Jack 2-1 in the Tigers’ 19-13 loss to the Beavers in the last match of a four-team quad Sunday in Columbia. Jack was the No. 10-ranked heavyweight in the nation going into the match.

Bradley won a 6-1 decision over Steven Butler in the Tigers’ 41-0 win over Lindenwood. The shutout was the first for Missouri wrestling since 2004-2005 and came Sunday in the first of three duals.

In the second dual, a 19-15 Missouri win over Hofstra, Bradley beat Paul Snyder 8-2. Bradley now sits at 8-0 on the season and is 4-0 in duals.

Neely, competing at 184 pounds in the elite bracket, won his first two matches Saturday and went on to finish sixth. He started things off with a 7-5 win over Iowa’s Tomas Lira and then beat his next opponent 5-2.

Another Blue Springs graduate, Luke Greco, finished 0-2 in Omaha wrestling at 149 pounds of the elite bracket.
