    Reader and Varner Victorious at All-Star Classic

    FULLERTON, Calif. – Iowa State’s representatives wrestled and won twice Sunday at the NWCA All-Star Classic, presented by the William and Mary Wrestling Alumni Group, held on the campus of Cal State-Fullerton. Three-time NCAA finalist Jake Varner and two-time All-America honoree Jon Reader won their respective matches at the 44th edition of the annual event.

    “We’re going to continue getting better,” head coach Kevin Jackson said. “We’ll continue to grow from this experience out here at this event. We need to make the necessary connections in practice and then we’ll be able to dominate the way we’re training to dominate. The team’s goal is to be the best in March.”

    Reader hit the mat first for the Cyclones and scored a bonus-point victory over Bucknell’s Andy Rendos, 11-2 at 165 pounds. Reader, a native of Davison, Mich., notched four takedowns in the match. The ISU junior decisioned Rendos at both the 2008 and 2009 NCAA Championships.

    Top-ranked Varner wrestled to his third career victory at the All-Star event in a rematch of the 2009 NCAA Championships final round. The ISU senior 197-pounder controlled Nebraska’s Craig Brester by decision, 5-3. The Cyclone senior, hailing from Bakersfield, Calif., recorded a takedown, reversal and had the riding time advantage in the match. Brester’s three points came on escapes.

    Re: Reader and Varner Victorious at All-Star Classic

    Great Job.

    5-3 doesn't sound like Domination, but for Varner to get the Takedown, Reversal, and Riding Time, w/ Brester only getting (3) escapes. That is Domination, big win for Varner.

    Also, Great to see Reader major his guy. WOW.

    I have feeling KJ and the boyz are gonna RUN OVER the Hawks on Dec 6th, Should be a Great Meet. I would strongly encourage everyone to make it Ames for this Event. $15/ ticket or $50 for a Season ticket.

    Highly doubt that. Win? Maybe. They still have the #1 rated team. Hopefully we can pull it out at home.

    Re: Reader and Varner Victorious at All-Star Classic

    Love the positive thinking but I see it like this:

    125 - toss up
    133 - toss up
    141 - ISU dec.
    149 - UI tfall
    157 - toss up
    165 - toss up
    174 - UI dec.
    184 - UI dec.
    197 - ISU dec.
    285 - ISU dec.

    A lot of unknowns right now for both teams. How is Fanthorpe? Where is Morningstar's conditioning at right now? More than likely it will be a very close meet, but if things fall right I could see either team winning comfortably.
