INDIANAPOLIS — South Dakota State University’s Henry Pohlmeyer will face 11th-seeded Joshua Heil of Campbell in the opening round of next week’s NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
A junior from Johnston, Iowa, Pohlmeyer is seeded 22nd in the 149-pound weight class and enters the double-elimination tournament with a 20-13 overall record after earning an automatic bid with a fifth-place finish at last weekend’s Big 12 Conference Wrestling Championship. Heil is seeded 11th with a 23-6 record. Pohlmeyer is making his second consecutive trip to nationals; he posted a 1-2 record as an at-large qualifier at 141 pounds in 2018.
Pohlmeyer was the lone Jackrabbit to qualify for the national meet.
The NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships will be held March 21-23 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
