IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa head wrestling coach Tom Brands announced Wednesday that Sam Stoll and Vince Turk will each serve a one-match suspension when the Hawkeyes open the 2018-19 season at Kent State on Nov. 9.


“This program holds its wrestlers to a high standard and our team expects everyone to meet those standards,” Brands said. “When a student-athlete falls short of those expectations, it is the coach’s job to hold them accountable.”


The suspensions are due to a violation of team policy and rules.


“Sam and Vince have accepted the consequences of their actions,” Brands said. “The infractions were a first for both men, and I am very pleased with their response. We are moving forward.”
