  1. Former Indiana University NQ, Joe Fagiano, placed 7th at HWT. He was one of two D2 wrestlers to place. He also pinned D1 #6 ranked Cabell in a lat drop in 36 seconds!
  2. We will be hosting Bakersfield in our Take It Outside II event on November 14 in Riverside, CA. We make this a free event for all with special guests in attendance. Last year we had an awesome crowd of over 2,600 fans to watch. Check out this cool preview video we put together to promote this year's event! https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1034437409920031
  3. I think Army, Air Force, North Idaho College, Indiana, and Rutgers will all have at least one Indiana native registered.
  4. Sure wish this was full-time in some capacity!
  5. Two weekends ago we participated at the NAIA National Championships. We finished a program best 6th in the country. Jake Williams won the title at 149# and Cody Linton was runner-up at 184#. Zeke Hunt (GA) earned his 2nd AA with a 6th place finish. Zeke is the only varsity member of our team graduating. We are going to be very strong next season, especially with some of the recruits we are brining in. Zeke along with Indiana native, Steven Sandefer, were both named NAIA Scholar-Athletes as well. They've both represented Cumberland with pride and we are very proud of them.
  6. Cumberland University will be headed down to Life University to compete in the NAIA East Region Qualifier. The top 4 from each weight class will qualify for nationals. Currently the teams ranked nationally at #2, #5, #8, and #9 are the top 10 ranked teams in our qualifier. Dalton Baysinger (Yorktown, '13) and Kirk Johnson (Perry Meridian, '12) will be competing for the Bulldogs.
  7. Kirk Johnson (Cumberland) won the title at 165#. Neal Molloy (Danville) earned 3rd place at 157#. Luke Blanton (Alexandria) earned a runner-up finish at 149#. He lost a thrilling OT match to Cumberland's 2x AA Jake Williams (20-0 on the season so far). There were some great scrambles and it was a high scoring match! Great to see Indiana kids excelling and bringing home hardware!
  8. We had an issue with Mike Evans last season when we dualed Iowa. Our true freshman (and Indiana native), Kirk Johnson, took him down twice in the first period. Evans was not happy about that especially cause he was ranked 4th in the country. Johnson chose bottom to start the 2nd period and KJ told us that Evans was chirping in his ear the entire period about how he was going to hurt him and rip his fu***** arm off. Well, he did just that. KJ didn't wrestle another match the entire season and had shoulder surgery about 2 weeks later. It is truly unfortunate that this is the mentality some wrestlers have.
  9. Wrestling starts at 10am. #4 Campbellsville #5 Great Falls #8 Cumberland (TN) #11 Indiana Tech #19 Oklahoma City University # Missouri Baptist
  10. We compete against regional opponent Life U tonight. All three Indiana wrestlers will be in the lineup. Updates will be posted following the dual. Live updates can be seen by following our Twitter (@WrestlingCU) and our team Facebook... https://www.facebook.com/CumberlandUniversityWrestling
  11. Indiana was well represented on behalf of Cumberland U! Kirk Johnson claimed the title at 165#. Steven Sandefer (157#) and Dalton Baysinger (141#) each earned 3rd place honors.
  12. We have three Indiana wrestlers on the squad this season: Steven Sandefer - Mishawaka Kirk Johnson - Perry Meridian Dalton Baysinger - Yorktown They are all doing great. We are expecting all three to start for us this year and likely Steven and Kirk will be ranked top 5-7 when the first rankings come out. We have our Alumni dual and wrestle-offs this Saturday. Here is a link to a small promo for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgHq2QfFZNQ Here is a link to last season's highlight video that Coach Allen made for the guys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1Bblh-h7dc Be sure to follow updates and results for the program on the following social networking sites as well: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CumberlandUniversityWrestling Instagram: WrestlingCU Twitter: @WrestlingCU We are ready for an outstanding season. We will be in Fort Wayne on December 14 to dual Indiana Tech. More information to come on that in the future. Be sure to support all Indiana wrestlers and wrestlers around the country! Coach Nicola
  13. Not sure if it had been posted yet, but Marian in Indy is starting up a NAIA program. Their coach emailed me and said they'll be club for the first two years then NAIA eligible. That's great news for Indiana wrestking!
  14. The Bulldogs had a great showing at the CU Open this past Saturday. There were representatives from NAIA, NCAA D1, D2, and Juco schools. Eight Bulldogs placed in the top 4 and we had 5 finalists (3 Champions). Among those Champs was Mishawaka native, Steven Sandefer, who won the tournament in dominating fashion. The wrestler ranked 3rd in the country (NAIA) placed 4th in this same weight class. South Bend native, Joe Gallegos, made the bump to heavyweight for the remainder of the season and placed 4th. In the process he defeated the 15th ranked (NAIA) wrestler from Lindsey Wilson. I'd also like to note that Evansville native Trevor Moody (Indiana University) won the 141 lb. weight class defeating a returning NAIA All-American in the finals. Great job, Trevor. We will be in action tomorrow against 11th ranked U of the Cumberlands and then again at the Central Baptist Open in Arkansas.
