The King’s College wrestling team had two place-winners at the season-opening Ned McGinley Invitational Tournament Saturday in Scandlon Gymnasium.
Tunkhannock grad and sophomore Dakota Quick placed third at 125-pounds to lead the Monarchs, who entered only 10 wrestlers because of injuries and finished 11th out of 12 as a team.
After a first-round bye, Quick registered a pair of pins over Anthony Fischetti of Oneonta and Spencer Reed of Wilkes.
In the semifinals, he lost by technical fall to top-seeded eventual champion Nick Barbaria of Roger Williams.
Quick battled back in the consolation bracket, pinning Kyle Trout of Wilkes before posting a 6-0 decision over Colby Bronzburg of Keystone in the third-place match.
New York University took home first place in the tournament with 158 points, followed by York (Pa.) in second with 146.5 points and SUNY-Cortland in third with 131.
The Monarchs return to the mat Saturday with the New York City/Pennsylvania Duals at Wilkes University.
