    We're underway on day two from the Bryce Jordan Center!

    Once again, here's what's going on, as it happens.

    They're meeting once again! Ildar Hafizov and Dalton Roberts at 60 kg in Greco-Roman. The two Army WCAP teammates have been frequent opponents and are in the first match of their best-of-three series. Dalton Roberts takes the first match 2-0.

    Speaking of ex-teammates, we've got another set in the 57 kg men's freestyle finals with Spencer Lee and Thomas Gilman - both Iowa grads. Gilman gets on the board first after a shot-clock violation. Late in the first period, Lee takes the lead after running Gilman out of bounds with an elevated single leg. Lee breaks the match open in the second with a takedown followed by an arm-bar tilt for exposure. He leads 5-1 in the final minute. Gilman gets to a single of his own, elevates Lee for a takedown - two points were given; however Gilman's corner has challenged. The call is confirmed. Lee gets a point and leads 6-3. Spencer Lee will take match one by that score!

Coleman was given an opportunity to work in par terre after a third passivity call in the second period; however, Sancho avoided getting turned and takes the win 1-1. 

    We've got a rematch of the 2020(1) Olympic Trials finals with Macey Kilty and Kayla Miracle in match one at 62 kg. Kilty leads after a fun first period that saw her score with a takedown, a set of exposure points, and a reversal. A late exposure after a Kilty attack gives Miracle an 8-5 win in match one.
