Lincoln College Takes 14th Place in NJCAA Wrestling Tournament

Spokane, Wash. – Northeastern Oklahoma A&M jumped out in front early and couldn’t be caught, winning the team title at the 2014 National Junior College Athletic Association Wrestling Tournament with 169 team points. This was NEO A&M’s first wrestling team in 20 years, but its head coach Joe Renfro led his former team Labette Community College to two national championships and two second-place finishes in his 11 years at that college.

Northwest College came in second with 149 team points and Clackamas Community College was third with 139 team points.

“This was an extremely competitive tournament with outstanding wrestlers in every weight class, but Northeastern Oklahoma was solid across the board. They advanced nine of 10 wrestlers to the second day of competition and that gave them a significant lead in points that was hard to overcome.” said North Idaho College Athletics Director Al Williams.

Last year’s returning co-championship team and this year’s tournament host, NIC, came in sixth with 72 points and one national champion, 197-pounder Vincent Giulio. Giulio was also awarded the Outstanding Wrestler Award and his girlfriend accepted his marriage on the awards podium.

“The tournament had a wide open field without any returning national champions, so it was enjoyable to watch and see which wrestlers would reach the finals match,” Williams said. “This was an excellent representation of college wrestling for our fans to see and the crowds were enthusiastic. We’re honored to have had the opportunity to hold the tournament in our region.”

Final updates and information for each weight class are posted to the Track Wrestling website at www.trackwrestling.com.
