Coach Ron Nellermoe's wrestling team completed a 9-6 season in dual matches and advanced three wrestlers to the NCAA Division III wrestling tournament in Cleveland. Mike Northcutt, a junior from Missoula, Mont., won two matches at the national meet, just one victory short of all-America honors, and was named to the academic all-America squad. He ended the season with a 33-15 record.
Joining Northcutt in national competition were sophomore Chip Halvorson, Glasgow, Mont., and freshman Steve Larsen, Rochester, Minn., who both lost their first matches.
'I was pleased to see three wrestlers get to the national tournament this year," said Nellermoe. "They wrestled well."
Of the eight Cobber wrestlers who competed in the MIAC meet, sophomore Kirk Leinwand, Forsyth, Mont., placed second; all the others placed third or fourth.
Nellermoe is already planning for next year. "We're only losing one
senior," he said. "If we can get some strength at the lower weights and
keep what we have, it should be a good season."
