UNI

You want to talk about having yourself a day look no further than this UNI squad that put four wrestlers into today semifinal round, and two more are a win away from a podium finish on the consolation side of the bracket.

One of the big reasons for the Panther Trains strong performance comes at 125 pounds where sophomore Jay Schwarm is in the middle of a breakout run. After starting his tournament with a pair of falls, Schwarm added an 8-4 and 8-6 decision to reach the semifinals. The latter of those wins was posted against former All-American Ryan Millhof of Arizona State. He’ll face #3 seed Sean Russell of Edinboro in today’s semifinals.

Also having a breakout tournament at 141 pounds is junior Josh Alber, who also picked up an upset over an All-American. This one a 4-3 decision against Minnesota’s Tommy Thorn. He will take on #2 seed Chad Red of Nebraska in his semifinal.

Rounding out the Panther semifinalist are sophomores Max Thomsen and Taylor Lujan at 149 and 174 pounds respectively. The top seed at his weight, Thomsen will face North Carolina’s #5 seed Troy Heilmann while Lujan will see #1 seed Anthony Valencia of Arizona State.

Looking for consolation victories are Drew Foster and Jacob Holschlag at 184 and 197 pounds. Foster will have a rematch with Cornell’s Max Dean, who defeated him when their two teams met in a dual two weeks ago. Holschlag will face Wisconsin’s #9 seed Hunter Ritter.
