Bellarmine had a total of 8 All-Americans - four of which were champs - but for the purposes of this thread I only listed the ones from Ohio. Bellarmine is currently transitioning to NCAA DI, and as such is not allowed to compete in the SoCon or NCAA tournament until they complete their transition, so they opted to compete in the NCWA post-season this season and next. Bellarmine won the NCWA team race, dethroning Liberty who had won the last three tournaments.

Toledo took 6th place, Ohio State Wrestling Club took 1st in Division 2 (one tournament, two teams scores) and 7th overall, and Akron took 34th.
