Appalachian State University wrestling closed the opening day of the two-day 2013 Southern Scuffle in 22nd place of the strong 24-team field, hosted by Chattanooga at McKenzie Arena on Tuesday.

Redshirt freshman Zack Strickland (165 pounds) is the lone Mountaineer that remains from the opening rounds and will compete for a podium position on Wednesday, as the Apps compiled a day one total of 11.5 points.
After dropping his opening match of the day against fourth-seeded Nick Sulzer of Virginia, Strickland earned three straight victories to remain in the wrestle-back bracket. Strickland nabbed a sudden victory win over Chattanooga’s John Lampe, followed by a 9-1 majority decision over Lampe’s teammate, seventh-seeded, Josh Condon. Strickland paved his way into Wednesday’s final rounds with a 12-0 majority decision over Arizona State’s Parker Madl.
In his path is ninth-seeded NC State’s Nijel Jones, who fell to top-seeded Kyle Dake of Cornell is his quarterfinal bout.
Redshirt sophomore Dominic Parisi (125 pounds), senior Brett Boston (133 pounds) and freshman Dylan Cottrell (157 pounds) tried to fight back in their respective consolation brackets, but both were eliminated in Round 5, falling just short of securing podium spots.
Action continues at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, with live results and stream at
