Swiderski and Davis shine at NCAA Championships

Dundee graduates Casey Swiderski and Braeden Davis both had standout performances at the NCAA Wrestling Championships over the weekend. Swiderski achieved All-American status for Iowa State by placing seventh in the 149-pound weight class, while Davis helped Penn State secure the national championship title.

Penn State dominated the tournament, scoring 155.5 points and finishing well ahead of the runner-up Michigan with 71 points. Iowa State also had a strong showing, coming in fifth with 64.5 points. Swiderski won his first two matches narrowly before being defeated by the top-seed in the quarterfinals. He then bounced back to secure a seventh-place finish with a convincing victory. Davis, at 125 pounds, just missed out on becoming an All-American after being eliminated in the blood round.

Additionally, Dundee’s Stoney Buell represented Purdue at 165 pounds in the national finals but came up short against tough competition.
