IOWA STATE's READER TO NCAA QUARTERFINALS
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Top seeded Iowa Stater Jon Reader won his second-round match and three other Cyclone wrestlers remain alive in the consolation bracket of the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Wells Fargo Arena Thursday. Iowa State is in 31st place with nine points. Penn State leads the team competition with 30.5 points. The quarterfinal round begins Friday at 9:30 a.m. CDT.
Reader quickly took down Purdue’s Luke Manuel and earned three back points in the first period to jump out to a 5-0 lead. The Cyclone then continued his dominance throughout the balance of the match, racking up over four minutes of riding time on the way to a 13-0 major decision victory. Reader will wrestle No. 8 seed Mike Letts of Maryland in the quarterfinals Friday morning. Reader defeated Letts 6-1 at the Midlands Championships earlier this season.
