  1. Hello everyone! I have known many of you for years already and those of you whom I have not met, I look forward to meeting you! My name is Andrew Nicola. I have recently moved back home to Ft. Wayne, Indiana after being gone for the last 10 years. During that 10 years I have been on the Team Indiana Fargo and Junior Duals staff. Also during that 10 years I have been coaching at the collegiate level, most recently as the head coach at Concordia University in Nebraska. I wanted to let everyone that I will be here throughout the summer at least and I am available for camps and clinics. I will be happy to focus on folkstyle, freestyle and/or Greco. Over the last two years I have competed in freestyle and Greco at Master's Nationals in Las Vegas. I have been on the Team Indiana coaching staff for summer trips for the past 15 years. Please feel free to shoot me a call, text, or email with any questions. I will travel anywhere in the state to help out! Thanks and I look forward to hearing from some of you.

  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. I think Army, Air Force, North Idaho College, Indiana, and Rutgers will all have at least one Indiana native registered.
  5. Sure wish this was full-time in some capacity!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Wrestling starts at 10am. #4 Campbellsville #5 Great Falls #8 Cumberland (TN) #11 Indiana Tech #19 Oklahoma City University # Missouri Baptist
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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!
