WVU Peyton Hall Finishes in Eighth Place at the NCAA Wrestling Championships



West Virginia sophomore Peyton Hall finished in eighth place at the NCAA Wrestling Championships at Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit Saturday afternoon.

Hall faced off against No. 7 redshirt sophomore Carson Kharchla in the Seventh Place match in the 165 weight class and got out to an early lead, 1-0, with an escape.

Kharchla took the lead himself, 2-1, with a reversal of Hall early in the third period.

Kharchla kept putting pressure on Hall throughout the rest of the period, building up riding time and not allowing Hall to make a move to get more points.

Hall did get a late escape, but Kharcla won the match, 3-2, with the extra point from the riding time.

Despite the loss, Hall finished the season strong, as he made it to his second straight NCAA Championships and placed for the first time in his career. He also becomes the 34th All-American in WVU program history.
