SDSU wrestlers to compete in Ohio

About a dozen South Dakota State University wrestlers are scheduled to compete at the 2023 U23 Nationals and U20 World Team Trials this weekend in Geneva, Ohio.

Competition begins Friday and runs through Sunday at Spire Institute. Coverage of the event will be available through FloWrestling.org.

The majority of Jackrabbit wrestlers will be competing in the freestyle division of the U23 Nationals, with Spencer Trenary entered in both freestyle and Greco-Roman competition.

Two SDSU wrestlers, Bennett Berge, and Kail Wynia, are slated to compete in the U20 freestyle division. Berge has already qualified for the 86-kilogram finals based on previously winning the 2023 U.S. Open in late April. The World Team Trials finals will consist of a best-of-three series with weight-class winners earning the right to compete at the U20 World Championships in Warsaw, Poland, in August.

Berge has previous international competition experience as he wrestled his way to a silver medal in the 86-kilogram weight class at the 2022 U20 World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.
