Scott VanDeLoo (Sr., 184 lbs.) will attempt to keep his unbeaten streak going after a very successful tournament last week at the Luther College Open. VanDeLoo won by fall in three of his four matches, highlighted by victories over the #4 rated wrestler in the NJCAA and the #9 rated wrestler in Division III.

MSU-Mankato MavericksAlphonso Vruno (Sr., 141 lbs.) and Darick Vancura (Jr., 197 lbs.) return for the Augsburg Open, where a season ago they both placed second in their weight classes. Vruno is the only returning Maverick that competed in the NCAA Championships the previous year.
