Unseeded Joel Olivas (Henderson, Nev.) was the biggest surprise of the afternoon as he advanced all the way to the finals of the 141 pounders, before falling to CJ Napier of Fort Hays State.
“Today was a total team effort,” said head coach Jimmy May. “This was a huge step forward for our program and I couldn’t be more proud of our kids.”
No. 10 Baker won’t have time to celebrate for long as the Wildcats prepare to host No. 5 Oklahoma City University on Feb. 1 at 6 p.m.
