Two seniors capped off their illustrious careers for the Bulldog wrestling team this winter in Ryan Maus and Colton Schmitz. Both finished in the top 10 in career victories with Maus winning 97 matches and placing third at the 2013 NCAA national championships and Schmitz finishing with 95 victories and a team-high 25 wins as a senior.
The Bulldogs were invited to compete in the National Wrestling Coaches Association Division II National Duals in January in Des Moines, Iowa, and finished the season with a 6-10 dual record.
Schmitz was a first-team all-academic selection and led a contingent consisting of Nick Shea, Will Evans, Luke Knocke, Alex Rentschler and Chase Wrisinger to the NWCA All-Academic team list. The Bulldogs posted the fifth-highest GPA in Division II marking the 11th top-five finish by the Bulldogs over the past 15 years.
