The #5 ranked St. Cloud State Huskies wrestling team will travel to Des Moines, Iowa this weekend and attempt to defend their NWCA National Duals title for the third straight year.
Head Coach Steve Costanzo and his crew will start the tourney out Saturday at 9:00 a.m. against the Colorado State Pueblo Thunderwolves. The Huskies are coming off a winning weekend after capturing the Mid Atlantic Duals title at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio.
En route to their title, the Huskies defeated the #20 Gannon University Golden Knights 33-6, the #9 University of Indianapolis Greyhounds 27-15 and defeated the home team #16 Ashland University Eagles 36-6 in the finals.
Of note from the semifinals dual against the Greyhounds, the Huskies were down 15-9 going into the 174 pound match until Redshirt Freshmen Clayton Jennissen tied the dual back up 15-15 with a second period pin. The Huskies would win the remainder of the matches and win 27-15.
