Kolodzik, Lugo set to renew individual rivalry at HWC Showdown Open

Pat Lugo and Matthew Kolodzik are set to stage another edition of their individual rivalry.

The multi-time All-Americans will do battle once again on Nov. 1 at the Hawkeye Wrestling Club Showdown Open, which will be streamed live on Trackwrestling.

Kolodzik won two of their three folkstyle meetings in college, but Lugo won their freestyle encounter at the 2018 U23 Nationals.

Lugo is coming off a superb senior season at Iowa. He posted a 21-1 record, won the Big Ten title and claimed the No. 1 seed for the NCAA Championships.

Kolodzik went 9-0 during an abbreviated senior season at Princeton. He initially intended to sit out the college season but returned late in the year and won his third EIWA title.
