It was one of the final opportunities to prepare for the postseason tournaments. The Cobber athletes got to face off against top competition across all NCAA divisions and five Cobbers managed to grind their way to Top 6 finishes.

The Cobber lightweights were well-represented on the medal stand as 125-pounders Michael Miller and Jake Nohre found spots on the podium. Joining those two in receiving honors for his performance was freshman 141-pounder Bret Wilson, who tied for the team lead in wins on the day.

Miller earned two workmanlike, technically sound, victories to earn sixth place at 125 pounds. His fellow 125-pounder, Nohre, received a bye to the quarterfinals before stamping his ticket to the semis with a dominant 9-0 win. That hot start was good enough for Nohre to claim fourth place.
