With six entries with NCAA experience, 141 is a weight with talent at the top. Rumph was the top seed at 133 last year, while McAuliffe is a 3x qualifier who got on the podium in 2018. Slendorn was a regional champ in his first year at Stevens, while Wright won a tough weight at the Lower Midwest last season. Regional foes Vasquez and Woody both last qualified in 2019 with Vasquez placing 8th.

Lundeen is the only other 2020 regional placewinner (who is not an NCAA qualifier) in the weight. Schropp has a win over Wright in their ARC dual. Gross is undefeated so far.

    This weight class is loaded going to be a heck of a battle. I like that Slendorn kid tough as nails.
