OSU Wrestling: Current, Former Cowboys Head To U.S. World Team Trials

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma State wrestling team will be well represented this weekend at the U.S. Senior and Junior World Team Trials, as five Cowboys competing in the senior level event and three competing as juniors. The event is set for June 9-10 in Lincoln, Neb.

Five current and former Cowboys will be competing for spots on the U.S. Senior World Team.

Former Cowboy Josh Kindig will be competing at 61kg. Kindig finished third at the 2017 U.S. Open in Las Vegas earlier this spring to qualify.

After taking home the U.S. Open title this year, Jordan Oliver will be unable to compete at the trials despite receiving a bye to the 65kg finals. Two-time defending NCAA Champion Dean Heil earned an automatic qualification with his most recent title and will be competing in the 65kg bracket.

Two former Cowboys will compete in the loaded 74kg bracket. Alex Dieringer was the highest American medalist at the Bill Farrell International Open to earn his qualification. Coming off a fifth-place finish at the U.S. Open in April, Chris Perry is set to join the action as well.

Recent OSU graduate Kyle Crutchmer is set to compete at 86kg. Crutchmer finished sixth at the U.S. Open to qualify for the event.

Incoming Cowboy Daton Fix and current OSU wrestlers Andrew Marsden and Keegan Moore will each be aiming for spots on the U.S. Junior World Team.

Fix will compete in the 55kg bracket after taking home top honors at the UWW Junior National Championships in April. Coming off a 96kg title of his own at the Junior National Championships, Andrew Marsden has earned a spot in that bracket.

Moore will make an appearance at 84kg after a third-place finish at Junior Nationals.
