Eye on SW ND Sports

Randy Burwick provided me the following info on his son Kyle: ‘Kyle wrestled in his first college wrestling tournament on Nov. 2nd in Stevens Point Wisconsin at the Pointer Open. He finished 2nd at 133, losing a tight 4-3 match in the finals. He won his first match 16-0 won his semifinal match 12-3. A Great effort for him in his first college tourney.”

For the Record

Matt Berlin (Oak Creek, Wis./Oak Creek) won the 133 bracket by going 4-0 on the day. He won his first match by tech fall and pinned Matt McEnroe from UW-Oshkosh in the second round. Berlin won an 8-1 decision to move to the finals where he got by Kyle Burwick of the University of Wisconsin in a 4-3 decision. Burwick was a five-time state champion in North Dakota and the No. 4 recruit in the nation.

The No. 5 Wisconsin wrestling team began its 2019-20 campaign at America’s Favorite City Dual, taking on Fresno State and Army. Wisconsin won both duals heading into the Battle on the Midway. Wisconsin defeated Fresno State with 31-8, but Army proved to be a tougher battle for the Badgers as UW edged the Black Knights in the final bout of the dual, 16-15. Up next was the Battle on the Midway at the USS Midway Museum in San Diego on Nov. 1. The Badger wrestling team improved to a perfect 3-0 after defeating the Naval Academy, 24-12, to earn the Dual for Valor trophy on the deck of the USS Midway.
