SAN FRANCISCO ' One night after extending its consecutive winning season streak to 36, the Southern Oregon University wrestling team notched its fifth straight dual triumph by clobbering San Francisco State University, 29-7, Friday.

Sixth-ranked Story improved to 23-5 with the win, while top-rated Jimmy Grochowsky upped his team-leading season mark to 27-5 with a 4-2 decision over Will Simmons in the 165-pound tilt.

Eighth-ranked freshman Trevor Lofstedt earned his 20th collegiate win with a 7-0 blanking of Brian Watanabe at 125, and sophomore Taylor Wilkerson (15-14) earned his sixth win over the past seven outings in the heavyweight clash.
