WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — The 17th-ranked Purdue wrestling team put together a historic victory in Holloway Gymnasium, dominating Indiana 38-3 as they won nine of the 10 matches in the dual. The win is the 11th straight for the Boilermakers in the series, marking the longest streak for either side since 1928, and is the largest margin of victory between the two sides since 1920.

The Boilermakers won six of the 10 bouts with bonus points, including a pair of falls, and score the programs’ highest Big Ten dual point total since a 41-point effort at Wisconsin in 2012. Senior Griffin Parriott and freshman Gerrit Nijenhuis came up with Purdue’s two falls on the night, putting up six team points at 149 and 165 pounds, respectively.

Senior Devin Schroder got the dual started with a 9-1 major decision over Indiana’s Jacob Moran at 125 pounds. Schroder scored a takedown in all three periods and added a reversal in the third to notch his fourth bonus-point win of the season.

Freshman Jacob Rundell added his second straight Big Ten dual win at 133 pounds, scoring nine points in the first period on his way to an 11-5 decision over Kyle Luigs. Rundell went big at the end of the first, taking the Hoosier to his back and nearly sticking him, but settling for six points. He added another takedown in the third, improving to 3-4 on the season.

The momentum continued at 141 pounds as junior Parker Filius put together a 12-2 major decision over Cayden Rooks. After leading just 2-1 after the first period Filius got things going in the second, posting seven points on an escape, a takedown and four nearfall points and stretching his lead out. The bonus-point win is the second straight for Filius as he improved to 3-5 on the year.

Parriott nearly took the roof off Holloway, avenging a 2020 loss to No. 15 Graham Rooks with a 24-second fall. Parriott hit a cement mixer in the first 10 seconds and then settled in for the fall, his first of the year and seventh of his career.

Sophomore Kendall Coleman finished his dual schedule at 8-1 on the year, rolling out six takedowns on his way to a 14-5 major decision over Jonathan Kervin. Nijenhuis followed up with a signature win for his rookie year, taking out No. 20 Nick South with a second-period fall. After neither wrestler scored in the first, the Purdue freshman chose bottom in the second and used his team-best sixth reversal of the year and put South on his back for his second fall of the season.

IU’s lone win of the night came at 174 pounds as No. 6 Donnell Washington edged Emil Soehnlen 5-1. After giving up an early takedown Soehnlen battled back, pushing the tempo, nearly getting a turn in the second and trying to run down Washington down the stretch. Washington got another takedown at the buzzer as Soehnlen kept trying to score until the end.

Senior Max Lyon put together a dominant 17-2 technical fall over Santos Cantu at 184 pounds, using all seven minutes to put together his 33rd bonus-point win of his career. Sophomore Thomas Penola added a 4-2 decision at 197 and junior Jared Florell put the cap on the evening with a 6-2 decision at heavyweight, his first win of the season and first at 285 pounds.

The Boilermakers finish the dual season at 4-5 in the Big Ten, while Indiana fell to 2-6 on the year. Both sides head into the post season on March 6, heading to Penn State for the 2021 Big Ten Championships. The Big Ten Network will air the championships in their entirety for the first time in history.
