Cyclones Finish 11th at NCAA Championships

The following is a press release courtesy of Iowa State athletics communications. 

DES MOINES, Iowa – The young Iowa State wrestling team made drastic improvements in 2012-13, finishing in 11th place with 41.5 team points at the 2013 NCAA Championships, which ended Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena.

A bulk of Iowa State’s team points came from three All-Americans in sophomore Michael Moreno (sixth at 165), sophomore Kyven Gadson (sixth at 197) and Matt Gibson (eighth at 285).  The three went a combined 16-9 in the tournament en route to the All-America podium.

ISU started the year 1-3 in duals. But a patient head coach Kevin Jackson rallied his troops and the Cyclones won 10 of their last 12 duals, finishing second at the Big 12 Championships behind No. 2 Oklahoma State.

Iowa State heads into the offseason with much promise, as the Cyclones return eight starters from this year’s squad, including two All-Americans and five NCAA-qualifiers.

Final Team Standings:

1. Penn State – 123.5 (points)

2. Oklahoma State – 119.5

3. Minnesota – 103.0

4. Iowa – 73.0

5. Cornell – 65.0

6. Ohio State – 59.5

7. Missouri – 56.5

8. Oregon State – 48.5

9. Illinois – 45.5

10. Virginia Tech – 43.5

11. Iowa State – 41.5

12. Oklahoma – 38.5

13. Nebraska – 38.0

14. Edinboro – 37.5

15. Northern Iowa – 34.0
