SIOUX CITY, IOWA — The University of Jamestown went to the GPAC Duals and faced off against Hastings College and Midland University on Tuesday, Nov. 22, at the Long Lines Family Recreation Center.

The Jimmies started the day against Hastings and got a 40-14 win, as they overcame a 8-6 deficit to get the win.

After the Broncos took that early lead, the Jimmies turned to Tommy Beringer to get a major decision win over the Broncos’ Andy Rojas in the 149-pound weight class. Next up was the Jimmies’ Kaena De Santos who continued his incendiary start to the season with a fall win over Jake Paterson to put the Jimmies up 16-8.

After the Broncos’ Cole Maschmann got the better of the Jimmies’ Trappier Botz, the Jimmies put the dual away with a four-match winning streak.

After the win over the Broncos, the Jimmies looked to continue the winning streak and did just that by getting a 30-9 win over the Warriors.


The Jimmies stayed hot opening the dual on a three-match winning streak, with two falls making an impact. After a loss from Beringer, the Jimmies turned to De Santos to try to stop the bleeding but the newcomer’s dreams of a perfect season were dashed thanks to a 5-3 decision loss to the Warriors’ Raymond Aranda III. The Jimmies would respond though with Botz getting a win in the 165-pound weight class. After the Jimmies put the dual away with back-to-back decision wins, the Warriors got a win to cut the deficit to 24-6. However, the Jimmies finished the match with a win from Ian Howell in the 285-pound weight class over the Broncos’ Matthew Johnston.

The Jimmies are back in action at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29, when they face the University of Mary.
