Clackamas won its third straight NJCAA national championship on Thursday night after a huge fall by 133-pound champion Zeth Brower gave the Cougars the points they needed to get past Western Wyoming 152.5-147. Western Wyoming and head coach Art Castillo picked up 10 place winners, the first time in NJCAA history a team has had 10 place in the championships. Iowa Central was third, Pratt was fourth and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M was fifth.
Mike Spangler of Pratt (125) and Isaiah Crosby (157) of Iowa Western finished as two-time NJCAA champions. Zach Ferris of Cloud County (197) became that school’s first NJCAA individual champion.
The second part of the show hits the big news that Missouri wrestling is headed back to the Big 12 after a nine-year run in the Mid-American Conference. Those nine years saw Missouri win all nine MAC championships. The audio today is from Missouri’s press conference.
