Final Bracket

LAS VEGAS - Rollie Peterkin finished third at 125 pounds, while Lior Zamir matched his pre-tournament seed by placing eighth at 184 pounds to close out Penn's participation at the Cliff Keen Invitational, run this weekend at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Peterkin gained third place by defeating Hofstra's Dave Tomasette, 4-3. It was Peterkin's second win over Tomasette this weekend -- even though Tomasette began the weekend as the third seed and Peterkin was the sixth seed.

Zamir, meanwhile, was the eighth seed entering the weekend, and that is where he finished after losing to fifth-seeded Trevor Brandvold of Wisconsin, 4-3, in the seventh-place match.

As a team, Penn tied for 14th place with N.C. State, as both the Quakers and the Wolfpack scored 52 points. Michigan won the team title, scoring 127.5 points to edge past Missouri, (125) and Ohio State (121).
