NJCAA Championships field set after districts

After the completion of six NJCAA district wrestling championships, the field of competitors has been determined for the national tournament to be held in Des Moines, Iowa, on Feb. 22-23. A total of six schools will be bringing the maximum number of wrestlers, which is 10, one per weight class, in quest to claim the NJCAA title. It is interesting to note that the six teams that are bringing all ten wrestlers are also the same six teams who were crowned district champions. Those schools with full teams are North Idaho College (Idaho) ranked first, Labette Community College (Kansas) ranked second, Nassau Community College (New York) ranked fifth, Ellsworth Community College (Iowa) ranked sixth, Niagara County C.C. (New York) ranked eight, and Lincoln College (Illinois) who are currently unranked, but were ranked 19th in the previous NJCAA coaches poll. Continue reading at www.intermatwrestle.com
