Iowa State, Wisconsin down IU wrestling team in National Duals

The IU wrestling team struggled in Cedar Falls, Iowa, this weekend, losing to both the No. 2 Iowa State Cyclones and the No. 9 Wisconsin Badgers
IU was dominated by Iowa State 35-0 in their first match at the IWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals Meet. The Hoosiers bounced back somewhat against Wisconsin, winning four matches, but coming up just one match-win shy of upsetting the Badgers, falling 19-15.  

IU’s Angel Escobedo, the defending 125-pound national champion, came into the event undefeated at 9-0.

Escobedo lost his first matchup 3-1 of the year to Iowa State’s Tyler Clark. Escobedo would wrestle another match with an outcome of 3-1 – except this time the score went in his, and the Hoosiers’ favor. Escobedo defeated Wisconsin’s Tyler Hammen, breaking into double digits in wins this year.

Other Hoosier winners against Wisconsin were Matt Ortega in the 133-pound weight class, Matt Coughlin at 157 and Eric Cameron at 184.
