BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University wrestling team kept its spot at No. 14 in this week's NAIA Wrestling Coaches' Top 20 Poll, after its first month of wrestling.

The Wildcats went 2-1 last week at the HAAC Quad in Marshall, Mo., as they picked up wins over Graceland and Benedictine, but fell to No. 3 Missouri Valley.

Baker has also garnered two HAAC Wrestler of the Week honors since the beginning of the season, as 174-pound wrestler Bryant Guillen received the first award of the season and 165-pound Wildcat Jakob Price earned last week's HAAC honor.

Baker will next take on the Iowa City Duals at the University of Iowa this Friday. They will go up against Iowa on Friday at 10 a.m., then will face Cornell at 12 p.m. and then end the duals at 2 p.m. against Iowa Central Community College.
