NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mount Union's wrestling team went 1-4 Saturday at the Gator Boots Duals at McGavock High School in Nashville, Tenn.

The Purple Raiders win came in a 21-19 victory over Elmhurst (Ill.) but Mount Union suffered a pair of close losses to nationally ranked No. 23 Ferrum (Va.), 22-19 and No. 19 Delaware Valley (Pa.), 27-16.

Two Mount Union wrestlers, Alec Cotton (Hartville/Lake) at 141 pounds and Jesse Gross (Norwalk/Norwalk St. Paul) at 157 pounds each grabbed four wins on the day.

Cotton, ranked eighth in the nation at his weight class, also had a pair of pins.

Mount Union will next compete at the NWCA National Duals January 5-6 in Ft. Wayne, Ind.
