Fort Wayne, Indiana – It was a familiar scenario for all five teams that claimed championships at the United Wrestling Group NWCA Multi-Divisional National Duals presented by the Marine Corps in honor of Cliff Keen.

Notre Dame College, Wartburg, Grand View, Clackamas and King each returned to the top spot in their respective divisions as competition concluded on Saturday night at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Wartburg ran the table for the sixth straight year as the Knights topped Wabash 28-12 for the Division III National Duals title. Wartburg lost four bouts the entire weekend. While Wabash only won three bouts in the final, one of them was significant as Devin Broukal defeated returning Division III champion Kenny Martin at 149 pounds.

Grand View collected its fifth straight title in the NAIA division, topping Indiana Tech 33-15 in the finals. Like Wartburg, the Vikings performed exceptionally, dropping just five individual bouts on the weekend.

Grand View 184-pounder Michael Pixley earned three falls in his four bouts. He defeated Indiana Tech All-American L.J. Grayson 7-1 in the championship final.

On the women’s side, King University claimed its third straight championship in the Women’s Collegiate Wrestling Association portion of the event. The Tornado defeated rival Oklahoma City 27-19 in the final.

With Oklahoma City leading 14-13 with four bouts to go, King picked up a pair of tech falls and a pin from Hanna Jewell at 143, Jessi Kee at 155 and Forrest Molinari at 170 to clinch the championship.

The biggest nail-biter came in the NJCAA Division as Clackamas won its fourth title in the past five years and third in a row with a 19-18 criteria victory over upstart Ellsworth.

As the dual finished tied with each team winning five individual bouts, the second criteria was also tied, with both teams scoring one six-point victory. The third criteria, most individual match points was also tied, leaving the fourth criteria -- total near fall points scored only from decisions, major decisions and technical falls – as the deciding factor.

In Division II, Notre Dame College won its second championship with a 21-15 win over St. Cloud State. Notre Dame won six of the 10 bouts, but upended a pair of top-ranked wrestlers in the process. At 125 pounds, Jacob Goodwin beat defending Division II champion Tim Prescott 6-5 and at 165 pounds, Juwon Edmond topped No. 1 Clint Poster 6-4 in sudden victory. Three-time Division II champion Joey Davis remained unbeaten in his college career, collecting an 8-3 win at 184 pounds for Notre Dame.
