Mizzou/Eastern Michigan Dual Recap and Takeaways

Making weight in three out of four days and then on the last day wrestling a fresh team is tough. Wrestling pretty well today was a credit to the team’s mental toughness. It was nice to see Mizzou gut out three big wins on the road trip without J’Den Cox. Continue reading This is MOPro … Continue reading Mizzou/Eastern Michigan Dual Recap and Takeaways

Twenty-Four Ranked Athletes Will Compete in the Midland Empire Conference Tournament

With the lone exception of a second place finish in 2015, the Midland Empire Conference Tournament has been dominated by one team as of late. In four of the last five seasons, the Smithville Warriors have been crowned the MEC Wrestling Champions. There is really no reason to think that 2017 could be different, as … Continue reading Twenty-Four Ranked Athletes Will Compete in the Midland Empire Conference Tournament

Neosho Dominates Branson Invitational Putting 9 into the Finals

Branson High School- #1 Ranked Neosho once again won the Branson Invitational with 378.5 points over 2nd place Seneca with 236.5 who had 6 finalist themselves. At 106 pounds #2 Joseph Semerad of Monett pinned Oscar Ortiz of McDonald County in 3:45. Both wrestlers had beaten 5th ranked Levi Connely of Seneca, Semerad (4-0) in … Continue reading Neosho Dominates Branson Invitational Putting 9 into the Finals

#9 Mizzou dominates #7 Cornell

Takeaways As a team Mizzou came out aggressively in the majority of their matches today, which was refreshing to see. Eierman and Mayes in particular really tried to break their opponents late and push the pace late, which was encouraging for the team’s March trophy prospects and MAC tournament winning streak. Eierman looks like a … Continue reading #9 Mizzou dominates #7 Cornell

Eastern Michigan Dual Predictions

This dual should be an easy win for the Tigers, but the matches at 125, 174, 184 and Heavyweight could all be important in contributing to conference seeding. It will be interesting to see how the team looks after three weigh-ins in for days. All rankings are courtesy of Flowwrestling! I should have a Cornell … Continue reading Eastern Michigan Dual Predictions

Mizzou/Buffalo Dual Recap

Buffalo is a well-coached team and they wrestled hard. I think that Mizzou was far superior in most weight classes in mat wrestling and UB wanted no part of that. Myers and Erneste had really big wins for MAC seeding and hopefully their confidence keeps growing here late in the season. The team looked in … Continue reading Mizzou/Buffalo Dual Recap

Park Hill vs Staley Dual Recap

With the dual hanging in the balance, Park Hill proved its mettle and staved off a ferocious challenge from Staley. In a star-studded clash of the titans, the No.1-ranked Trojans built an early lead and held on tight for a 27-21 victory between the top two teams in the state of Missouri. Both teams won … Continue reading Park Hill vs Staley Dual Recap

Cornell Dual Preview & Predictions

125 #18 Barlow McGhee (6-4) vs. Noah Baughman (15-9) OR Dalton Macri (0-2) This will be a tough match for Barlow, as Baughman scrambles extremely well and those guys have given McGhee some problems this season. Baughman is a bit undersized, so McGhee should have an edge in strength and hopefully he can power through … Continue reading Cornell Dual Preview & Predictions

Mizzou vs Buffalo Dual Preview

I think that the team comes out motivated after the debacle that was the Oklahoma dual. Myers, McGhee, Erneste, and Lemanowicz have very big matches for conference seeding. Cox had a ranked opponent. This dual could be closer than my prediction, as Buffalo is both at home and very well coached. I would not be … Continue reading Mizzou vs Buffalo Dual Preview
