Burroughs, Green Qualify for World Championships; 2-10 Oct 2021​

"At 70 kg in the men's freestyle, Green defeated Jordan Oliver in the semifinal match 6-4 to place himself in the final best two out of three championship series against Ryan Deakin. Green beat Deakin in two-straight matches as he forced a step out with five seconds left in the second to win 4-2. The upcoming trip to Norway will mark Green's sixth Senior World Championships.

Burroughs' story was similar as he defeated Jason Nolf 5-3 in the semifinals of the 79 kg freestyle division to qualify for the championship series against Alex Dieringer. Using three double legs, Burroughs took the first match 10-5. In the second, Burroughs won 4-3 to qualify for his 10th Olympic or World Team Championships combined. He has won eight previous medals, with five gold and three bronze. "

Former NU Lineman Farmer and All-American Berger Qualify for World Team Trials​

Tanner Farmer wins Bill Farrell Open at 130 kg in Greco-Roman, while Tyler Berger wins in freestyle at 70 kg

"Three-time NCAA All-American Tyler Berger (CA RTC) took down 2019 NCAA champion and 2020 Pan-Am gold medalist Anthony Ashnault (NYAC) in the 70 kg final. The first period ended tied at 2-2.

Collin Purinton came in unseeded and really did some good things. After a bye in the Round of 64, Purinton won 10-0 via tech over Nektoe Demison in just 48 seconds. In the Round of 16, Purinton fell to Pennsylvania’s Andrew Cerniglia 14-4 via tech in the second period, dropping him to the consolation bracket. Purinton rattled off wins on the back side, downing John Van Schenk Brill 10-0 via tech before beating 5-seed Cam Amine 5-2. Amine is fresh off an NCAA final appearance for Michigan. Purinton then rattled off four straight 10-0 tech wins to finish in third place. Purinton exacted his revenge over Cerniglia as he beat him 10-0 in 2:30 in the consolation semis. Then in the third-place match, Purinton teched Peter Pappas of George Mason in the first period. With his 7-1 record and third-place finish, Purinton earned a spot at the World Team Trials and looks to be a rapidly improving guy on the senior level.

At 65 kg, we saw a rematch from the 138-pound 16U Fargo finals where Joel Adams from Nebraska (Millard South) bested Tyler Kasak from Pennsylvania, 7-6, in a match that came down to the last seven seconds. Adams made the freestyle finals after winning Outstanding Wrestler in the Greco-Roman division. In another close match, Adams won bout one, 4-3. Match two also went the full six minutes, but this time Kasak did not let Adams put any points on the board, as Kasak won the second bout 7-0. In the deciding third match, Kasak scored a tight 6-4 decision to make the World Team.

Five Huskers earn World Team Trials berths: Lance, Purinton, Berger, Brown Ton, Haas. "USA Wrestling is pleased to announce that it has awarded the 2022 World Team Trials Challenge Tournament to Coralville, Iowa. The event will be hosted at Xtream Arena, May 21-22.

The World Team Trials Challenge Tournament features top Olympic hopefuls in the three Olympic disciplines: men’s freestyle, women’s freestyle and Greco-Roman. Winners and some of the runners-up will advance to Final X in June.
Final X is the last step in the Senior World Team Trials process which will determine the 2022 U.S. Senior World Team that will compete in Belgrade, Serbia, Sept. 12-18. USA Wrestling will announce the sites for 2022 Final X events in the near future."

Burroughs wrestles Marsteller for best of 3 on June 8.


In the 79 kg men's freestyle finals, the reigning world champion defeated Chance Marstellar, 4-0, in the first round of the series. In the second round, Marstellar forced a third deciding match after his 2-2 victory. In Round 3, Burroughs grabbed an early 3-0 lead and sealed the 5-0 win in the second period with a takedown.

This win qualified Burroughs for his 11th World or Olympic team and gives him a chance to break the freestyle title record that he and John Smith currently share.

Jordan Burroughs secured a spot on the U.S. team and will compete at the 2022 Senior World Championships on Sept. 10-18 in Belgrade, Serbia after his Final X series victory.
