Valley Sports Report
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Athens grad Brian Courtney, a redshirt sophomore on the University of Virginia wrestling team, went 2-0 Saturday to help nationally-ranked UVA to a pair of wins in its season-opening Cavalier Duals.
Wrestling at 141 pounds, Courtney decked Aldair Moran in 29 seconds to help Virginia to a 50-3 win over Southern Virginia.
Later in the day, Courtney earned a hard-fought, 2-0, decision over Maryland’s Hunter Baxter, with a second-period reversal. The Cavaliers topped the Terps, 34-6.
Courtney, who was 8-3 at 133 pounds last season, was granted a medical redshirt after a season-ending knee injury last year. He was 21-9 during his redshirt season in 2017-18.
The Cavaliers are back in action today at the Southeast Open.
