d3wrestle.com Ranking #11 – March 5, 2013

Both finalists from 125 are now at 133 and look to be on a collision course to again meet in the finals. #1 Anderson has picked up right where he left off last season and remains undefeated this season. Also undefeated in DIII is #2 Fitzenreider. His only loss so far was up at 141 to a wrestler from Northwestern. He recently shut out the field at the Midwest Region. Both Fitzenreider and Anderson have wins this year over last year’s 3rd place finisher #3 Bullard. Four of Bullard’s five DIII losses are to the two guys ranked above him, and he has a pair of wins this year against #9 Sutter, the 3rd place finisher at 125 a year ago. #4 Gomez and #5 Jones are newcomers to the NCAA tournament. Gomez has a close 1-0 loss to Anderson and wins over several of the entrants here. Jones is an Iowa State transfer who spent some time in Ames as the 125 starter over the past two years, but he joined NYU at the semester and has yet to lose, winning twice so far over #6 O’Boyle. The only other wrestler in the weight with NCAA experience is Ohio Northern’s Jones, and his matches at last year’s tournament ended in a fall and 16-0 tech fall. This year, he slipped in as the final qualifier out of the Mideast. Central region qualifiers Sokol and Obert have both had nice seasons and will be worth watching.
