WRESTLING: David Carr named Big 12 Wrestler of the Week


AMES, Iowa – After an outstanding performance in the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Dual, David Carr has been named the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week with his 6-1 victory over No. 2 Kaleb Young.

The 157-pound bout in the Iowa State-Iowa Dual featured a Junior World Champion and a NCAA All-American.  In what was the most anticipated match of the day, the two 157-pounders were tied at 0-0 after one period of action. Carr began the second period with an escape to take a 1-0 lead. Young was dinged for stalling also in the second period.

Young began the third stanza with an escape to tie the match at 1-1. With just over 30 seconds remaining in the match, Carr pieced together a leg attack that led to Young’s second stall warning, a Carr takedown and Carr cradling Young. Carr turned Young for two back-points and secured a 6-1 decision over the All-American.

Next Up
Carr and the No. 11 Cyclones will have a brief break before returning to the mat at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational on Dec. 6-7. That tournament will be streamed live on FloWrestling.
