GG03: Steve Costanzo looking to lead St. Cloud State to back-to-back Division II titles

Episode 3 of the Guillotine Grapevine heads up to Halenbeck Hall in St. Cloud as we visit with St. Cloud State head wrestling coach Steve Costanzo.

Costanzo guided the Huskies to the school’s first national championship last season at the NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships. Prior to coming to St. Cloud State, Costanzo guided Dana College to the NAIA championship.

Costanzo finds familiar faces in the way as he looks to earn back-to-back titles. They include his college coach, Mike Denney at Maryville and Nebraska-Kearney head coach Marc Bauer, also a Nebraska-Omaha alum.

With numerous All-Americans returning, depth isn’t an issue, firepower doesn’t seem to be an issue either. There’s a wrestling revolution in Division II coming from St. Cloud.
