NCWA Nationals Results for Akron

This past weekend the University of Akron placed 17th overall in the NCWA National Tournament and 2nd in Division 2 (one individual tournament with 2 team scores). Leading the way was Shane Brown who became Akron's first ever National Finalist but dropped a heartbreaking 3-1 decision on the raised mat. Akron was 2 points shy of the Division 2 title. Individual results for Akron:

133 - Ryan Matthews: 1-2, top 24
149 - Dakota Smith: 1-2, top 24
157 - Braxton Freeman: 2-2, top 16
157 - Cartale Clark: 0-2
165 - Paul Molke: 1-2, top 32
174 - Shane Brown: 5-1, 2nd Place (3x All-American)
184 - Garrett Carraway: 2-2, top 24
197 - Jesse Slocum: 2-2, top 16 (2x Academic All-American)
285 - Dominic Bell: 2-2, top 32

Note: Most of the brackets had about 40 wrestlers, so there was an extra round on the championship side, and an extra two rounds on the consolation side.

Congrats. Will Akron transition to a varsity sport at some point?

Thanks for posting. I followed up and looked at the results and saw that Univ. of Toledo team finished 13th overall and had 1 champ and 1 second place finisher. One of their higher ranked wrestlers - Taylor Workman from Amherst Steele lost in the quarters by a 4-2 score then lost in the consolation quarters by an 11-9 score and did not finish in top 8. Still a pretty good showing for the team that has tried to make strides toward getting it back to a varsity sport. I doubt it will happen. Just not enough interest in the area anymore. But when I think of all the guys that have opted to go to OSU from the area - and never saw the mat - you would think they could get a reasonably decent team to compete at the D-II level.

NCWA All-Americans with Ohio ties:

2nd at 133 - De'Ante Evans, UofToledo (Lakota East HS)
1st at 149 - Zach Blevins, UofToledo (Dundee HS, Dundee, MI)
2nd at 174 - Shane Brown, UofAkron (Akron Manchester HS)
5th at 235 - Seth Brennock, tOSU WC (Loveland HS)

Sadly, none of the out of state schools had an All-American who went to high school in Ohio. Usually there are a couple out there.
