Congratulations to Lance, Shultz, Thompson, Robb and Emerson and former husker TJ Dudley!
"After making it to the consolation semifinals, Schultz won by injury default in the fifth-place match against No. 1 seed Kyle Snyder. In the consolation quarterfinals, the senior earned a 9-7 decision victory over Northwestern's No. 11 seed Lucas Davison to advance to the bracket semifinals, but fell to No. 2 Hayden Zillmer by technical fall. Schultz finished seven places higher than his seed for the event and went 4-2 overall.

Lance earned a 6-4 decision victory over No. 4 seed David Tate Orndorff in the seventh-place match, keeping Orndorff scoreless in the second period to come back for the win. In the consolation quarterfinals, Lance fell in a 6-6 decision by criteria to No. 8 Daniel Chaid. The senior finished 3-2 overall at the event."

"Friday's Greco-Roman division featured three wrestlers earning top eight finishes. Sophomore Alex Thomsen secured the 65 kg title and Peyton Robb (77 kg) and Austin Emerson (130 kg) finished fourth and eighth, respectively."
