Marauders Huber and Springsteen Stamp Tickets to Nationals

The University of Mary is sending two wrestlers to the NCAA tournament in RS Freshman Braydon Huber an RS Junior Phil Springsteen.  Huber, a Post Fall, ID native, won two matches via decision before falling to #2 ranked (nationally) Jake Barzowski of St. Cloud State in the in the Super Region V final.  Barzowski scored the lone takedown of the match with short time in the first period, and Huber was never able to score the equalizer down 4-2 early in the third period.

Mary’s Phil Springsteen also fell to a St. Cloud foe in the finals and finished second, but not before an absolute battle in the semifinals over Upper Iowa’s Myron Crawford.  Crawford held Springsteen to a single escape point until late in the third period, when the Mary All American locked up a nearside cradle and scored a fall in 6:56.  St. Could’s Kolton Eischens dominated the final to the tune of a major decision.

Marauder Senior Austin Eichmann came up one match shot of a national championship berth for the second consecutive year. Eichmann scored the first takedown in his third place bout with Upper Iowa’s Dalton Hahn, but Hahn ground out a 4-2 victory.
