INDIANAPOLIS – South Dakota State University’s Henry Pohlmeyer and Zach Carlson both appear in the first installment of the NCAA Division I Wrestling Coaches’ Panel Rankings, which were released Thursday.
A junior from Johnston, Iowa, Pohlmeyer is ranked 18th in the 149-pound weight class. He has posted a 16-8 overall record this season after earning a trip to nationals in the 141-pound division during the 2017-18 campaign.
Carlson, a junior 184-pounder from Kerkhoven, Minnesota, filled the 33rd and final spot in the 184-pound weight class. He is enjoying his best season as a Jackrabbit, posting a 15-6 overall record thus far.
The coaches’ panel rankings will be updated periodically throughout the season. Conference allocations to the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships will be determined in part based on the panel rankings, with additional spots available on an at-large basis to fill the 330-wrestler field – 33 wrestlers in each of the 10 weight classes. SDSU will compete at the Big 12 Conference Wrestling Championship March 9-10 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Next action for the Jackrabbits is a Jan. 31 home dual against Utah Valley. The Big 12 matchup is set for a 7 p.m. start at Frost Arena.
