    The Army wrestling team came away with a 21-10 victory over Navy to end the Midshipmen’s winning streak in the series in front of 1,004 fans on Sunday evening at Christl Arena.

    Army’s win is the first over Navy since the 1996-97 season and snaps the Midshipmen’s 14-year winning streak and 17-year unbeaten streak in the series, as the teams tied during the 1999-00 campaign.

    The match opened at 157 pounds, with No. 18 Russell Parsons winning a 7-1 decision over Navy’s Drew Daniels to give Army (3-6, 3-4 Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association) an early 3-0 advantage. Navy (3-5, 1-3) answered with a 5-3 victory at 165, as 16th-ranked Peyton Walsh defeated Chandler Smith.

    The sides continued to trade matches, as the Black Knights earned a 3-1 decision at 174 before the Midshipmen took a 4-3 decision at 184. Read More
