    Escobedo named Most Outstanding Wrestler

    PRIMM, Nev. -- Four Hoosiers placed at the 28th Annual Cliff Keen Invitational, including Angel Escobedo and Nate Everhart; and their individual championships in the 125 lbs. and 285 lbs. weight classes, respectively. Escobedo was named the tournament's "Most Outstanding Wrestler."

    As a team, the Hoosiers finished in sixth place out 44 schools competing in the event. Twelve of the nation's top-25 teams were in the field.

    Escobedo, ranked second nationally, improves his season record to 12-0 after gathering a half-dozen wins en route to his tournament title. He took out two nationally-ranked opponents in the process, including a 4-2 decision over #3 Anthony Robles of Arizona State in the finals.

    In his semifinal match, Everhart firmly placed himself in the All-American conversation with a 4-3 triumph over No. 4 Mitch Monteiro (Cal St. Bakersfield). He then followed that up with another one-point victory over No. 7 Tucker Lane from Nebraska in the finals. It was incorrectly reported Saturday that Everhart lost his championship match. The corrected results are above.

    Young advanced to the semifinals of the championship bracket as well before dropping back-to-back matches by a combined three points against two wrestlers ranked in the nation's top-6. He rebounded in his final match of the weekend, however, defeating Hofstra's P.J. Gillespie, 8-5, for fifth place.

    Powless was Indiana's fourth placer out in Nevada, coming in at eight place.
