Elyria’s Danny Mitcheff suffered his first two losses of his senior season, snapping a 17-match win streak at the Southern Shuffle on Dec. 30 and then losing in a 5-3 upset to Drexel’s Steve Mytych on Friday.

His loss to snap his 17-match win streak was to Minnesota’s Jayson Ness, in a 7-3 decision, giving him second place for Kent State, who finished in seventh among 31 teams at the Southern Scuffle.

This past weekend, Kent State (10-1) overcame an 18-4 deficit against Virginia Tech to cap off a perfect 3-0 day at the Virginia Duals Saturday in the Hampton Coliseum, defeating Ohio, 33-9, followed by a 27-9 bashing of Michigan and a 25-18 comeback victory over Virginia Tech.

Danny’s record is 21-2 on the season as he looks to return to the NCAA Championships.
