Wiese Leads Bulldogs, but CU Loses the Battle of the Cumberlands
Thursday, January 31, 2008
Cumberland University lost to the University of the Cumberlands, 25-17. The Bulldogs gave up a forfeit at 125 and also had dual meet starters out at 133, 141, 149, 157 and 174.

The match started at 174 by virtue of the coaches' choice to draw a weight class. The Bulldogs were led by freshman David Wiese. Wiese defeated two-time All-American Dustin Center by major decision, 15-6. Others picking up wins were freshman Matt Craig at 133 by major decision, junior Eddie Sanchez at 149 by decision and freshman B.J. Stewart changed the momentum of the dual with a pin at 285 at the half-way point and brought the team score to 12-6. Sanchez avenged an earlier season loss to Steele, who is ranked fifth in the east region rankings.
