Northwestern wrestler helps Iowa win 22nd title

The NCAA News

Iowa wrestling fans did their part to help the Hawkeyes win their 22nd Division I Wrestling Championship by throwing their support behind Northwestern’s Jake Herbert in the 184-pound final match.

Herbert then did his part by winning a 6-3 decision over Ohio State’s Mike Pucillo, which secured a 96.5-92 margin for Iowa over Ohio State in the final team standings Saturday night in St. Louis.

The Hawkeyes won their second straight NCAA title – this one without the benefit of having an individual champion. But their adoptive son, Herbert, did the Hawkeyes a big favor.

On February 21, Herbert, a senior, wrestled his final home match in Evanston, Illinois, and the opponent happened to be Iowa. He was surprised to hear the Iowa fans cheer for him that night out of appreciation for his career.

On Saturday, they roared with approval so he could help their beloved Hawkeyes.

“Iowa wrestling is great,” Herbert told the assembled media afterward. “(Northwestern head coach) Tim Cysewski comes from it. I couldn’t imagine if I went to a university that had a following like that. We have a great fan base at Northwestern, but it’s nothing like the Hawkeyes; they bleed black and gold. Just knowing that I had them on my side gave me three-fourths of the arena really rooting for me.”

Iowa coach Tom Brands didn’t witness Herbert’s match, because he was spending time with his 149-pound wrestler, Brent Metcalf, who lost a chance at a second straight individual national title after being upset, 11-6, by North Carolina State’s Darrion Caldwell.

“Herbert is a competitor,” Brands said. ‘Those things are out of our control, but of course you want to win the team championship.”

Metcalf saw his 69-match win streak come to an end with the defeat. The junior is 72-2 in his career and plans to use the match as a learning experience during his final season of competition.

It is the first time Iowa has won an NCAA crown without an individual champion since 1978, the first of Dan Gable’s 15 titles.

“No individual got what he wanted,” Brands said. “Metcalf's match is sour, but he’s a competitor and he’ll get up. He's already going forward in his head and that’s a tribute to him. A lot of positive things happened on the back-side of the bracket to win this championship.”

Daniel Dennis (133), Ryan Morningstar (165), Phil Keddy (184) and Dan Erekson (heavyweight) all did well in the wrestle-backs to post important points for the Hawkeyes.

Morningstar recorded a third-place finish, Keddy and Erekson had fourth-place performances and Dennis captured seventh place.
