    Four Champions Lead Team Iowa in Dominant Junior Men's Freestyle Performance

    The Iowa men's freestyle team came into the FargoDome with a lot of hype. It was a crew that recently captured a Junior Dual title for the second consecutive season and featured a boatload of talent. Iowa lived up to those expectations and more with a dominant showing in Junior freestyle. Four Iowa natives won individual titles and the only Iowa wrestler to lose in the finals, did so against an opponent from Iowa. Iowa almost won by 100 points as they distanced themselves from second place Pennsylvania by a 214-116 margin. Overall, 13 Iowa wrestlers got on the podium and 11 of those finished in the top-four of their respective weights.

    These results bode well for the Iowa Hawkeyes as all five of Iowa's finalists have either signed or committed to wrestling for Tom Brands' team.

    Below are the final results for the medal round matches at the 2022 Junior National Freestyle Championships.
