    Cal State Bakersfield's wrestling team has suffered a devastating blow with a season-ending injury to standout 174-pound Bryce Hammond.

    Hammond, a junior, suffered a torn pectoral muscle on Jan. 31 at the California Collegiate Open Tournament in San Francisco and underwent season-ending surgery on Monday.

    He is expected to be fully recovered for next season. But the injury KO's CSUB's returning All-American at 174 pounds, where he placed eighth last March to become the Roadrunners' first All-American since 2010.

    Hammond, a two-time state champion at Bakersfield High School, was ranked No. 12 by The Open Mat, 16th by InterMat and 20th by Wrestling Report. He finishes 14-7 this season.
