Carr advances to the finals, Coleman becomes two-time All American


March 17, 2023

TULSA, Okla. – David Carr punched his ticket to the 165-pound national finals with a 6-5 victory over Princeton’s Quincy Monday Friday night inside the BOK Center. Marcus Coleman became a two-time All-American with a 2-0 record during the session.

Iowa State sits in eighth place as a team after day two with 44.0 points.

Just over 40 years after their fathers, Nate Carr and Kenny Monday, wrestled for a national title in Oklahoma City, their sons, David and Quincy, wrote the next chapter of the family rivalry in Tulsa.

Carr fell into an early 4-0 deficit Friday evening after Monday got a takedown and a quick tilt for two near fall points. The Cyclone responded with a reversal and eventually ended the first period trailing 5-2.

The Canton, Ohio native went down to begin the second and, after a quick escape, secured a match-tying takedown with 1:08 remaining in the second period. Carr put on a ride for the ages, riding out Monday for the final 3:08 of the match to earn the riding time point and a 6-5 victory.

Coleman secured his second consecutive All-America honor with a narrow 4-3 win over Michigan’s Matt Finesilver in the blood round. The Ames native then, after falling into a 6-0 deficit, pinned Clarion’s Will Feldkamp in 2:43 to advance to the consolation semifinals.

Zach ReddingCasey Swiderski and Sam Schuyler all fell one win shy of the podium.

Redding never managed to get to his offense as he fell, 12-0, to Minnesota’s Aaron Nagao. Swiderski and Purdue’s Parker Filius were knotted 2-2 in the third period when Swiderski was whipped to his back and pinned.

Schuyler suffered a heartbreaker in sudden victory, 3-1, after giving up a takedown on the edge of the mat to Wisconsin’s Trent Hillger.
