Weber Extends Win Streak to Nine as NDSU Wrestling Wraps Up Regular Season
BROOKINGS, S.D. – North Dakota State senior 165-pounder Luke Weber won his eighth and ninth straight matches as the Bison wrestling team closed out its regular-season schedule Saturday, Feb. 20, with the Last Chance Challenge inside Frost Arena. There was no team scoring.
Competitors from NDSU and South Dakota State wrestled 41 matches in the round-robin event, which served as a final tune-up for the teams’ starting lineups two weeks ahead of the Big 12 Championships and provided extra matches for reserves who did not have the benefit of open tournaments due to COVID-19.
Weber, who hasn’t lost since Jan. 10, picked up a 4-1 victory by decision over SDSU’s Kenny O’Neil and won by fall over Dalton Lakmann in 2 minutes, 7 seconds. Weber improved his record to a team-best 10-2 overall with four pins.
