    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The #25 Indiana University wrestling team (5-0) shined on Day One of the 2013 Hoosier Duals, going 3-0 and outscoring the competition by a combined scored of 87-18. All 10 Hoosier starters got in on the success, each winning at least two of three bouts and half (5) the lineup going a perfect 3-0. In total, Indiana won 25 of 30 bouts on the day.

    No opponent reached double-digit point against the Cream and Crimson on Saturday as IU topped Northern Colorado (2-4), Drexel (3-9) and VMI (1-7) by final margins of 32-9, 29-9 and 46-0, respectively. The blanking of VMI marks Indiana's first Division-I shutout since besting Clarion 49-0 on Jan. 18, 2009.

    Redshirt junior Taylor Walsh continued his 2013-14 pinning clinic, sticking all three foes to improve to 18-0 with 15 falls just over a month into the season. The 6th-ranked 157-pounder in the country now owns a share of fifth place all-time at IU for pins in a season; and his 36 career falls are slotted sixth in school history. The all-time record for season pins is 19 by Rod Chamberlin in 1981 and Viktor Sveda (1998-2002)'s 47 falls are the career high note.
    *Walsh's 15 pins are tied with Bill Paxton (1986), Rod Chamberlin (1980) and Gene Denisar (1968)

    Heavyweight Adam Chalfant, ranked eighth nationally, provided the maximum 18 team points as well. He pinned both of his adversaries that took the mat, including #27 Henry Chirino (Northern Colorado) while also accepting a forfeit by Drexel to deliver his 18 points. The redshirt senior improved to 12-1 on the year.

    Following Walsh's triumphs at 157 pounds, Indiana did not suffer a defeat in the next three weight classes for the entirety of Day One. Ryan LeBlanc (165 lbs), Nate Jackson (174 lbs) and Luke Sheridan (184 lbs) matched Walsh by also going 3-0. The trio contributed bonus points to the Hoosier effort as well. LeBlanc and Sheridan notched tech falls while Jackson carded a pin and major decision.

    Sheridan's action was full of suspense, twice seizing victory in extra time. His first win came in sudden victory, followed by a tiebreaker win in bout number two.

    A quintet of Hoosiers took two out of three, a group including: Joe Duca (125 lbs), Chris Caton (133 lbs), Ethan Raley (141 lbs), Alex Gregory (149 lbs) and Garret Goldman (197 lbs). Bonus points came from Duca (tech fall), Caton (two major decisions) and Raley (tech fall).

    West Virginia (6-2) was victorious in each of its three duals Saturday as well, setting up a likely Hoosier Duals title match against the Hoosiers on Sunday at 11 a.m. Indiana will also face SIUE at approximately 1 p.m. to wrap up the round-robin affair.
