This & That
Five Wildcat wrestlers secured a spot in the NAIA National Championships in March by qualifying in their respective weight classes at the Dan Harris Wildcat Open. Jordan McGuire and Alan Callahan qualified at 125 pounds. Pace and Clarence Jordan qualified at 174 pounds and Jacob Nowak at 184.
The Wildcats were highlighted last weekend by two place-winners. Billy Benz, from Gardner, Kan., finished seventh in the 125-pound weight class and became the sixth Baker wrestler to qualify for the national championships this season. Freshman Nathan Sommer, from Parker, Kan., joined Benz as a national qualifier by making it to the 7th-8th-place match before defaulting to eighth place in the 157-pound weight class because of injury.
With the two placers last weekend, Baker University has qualified seven wrestlers for the NAIA national championships in their first two weeks of competition. The NAIA allows each team to bring 12 wrestlers to the national championships.
