WRESTLING: Dauphin, Rowell lead UCO at MIAA Tournament

HAYS, Kan. — Cory Dauphin tied a 30-year-old school record and Casy Rowell knocked off the defending national champion in capturing individual championships to lead Central Oklahoma at the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Tournament here Sunday.

The No. 5-ranked Bronchos finished third in the rugged seven-team event with 67.5 points. No. 2 Nebraska-Kearney won its second straight league title with 109 points, followed by No. 7 Lindenwood (84.5), UCO and No. 12 Fort Hays State (63).

Dauphin stretched his winning streak to 47 in a row in rolling to the 157-pound title, tying the school mark set by Ronnie James from 1982-84, while Rowell toppled No. 1-ranked Daniel DeShazer of UNK at 133 for his 125th career victory.

UCO also got third-place showings from 141 Dustin Reed, 184 Znick Ferrell and heavyweight Cody Dauphin, while 125 Josh Breece, 149 Jordan Basks and 197 Garrett Henshaw all took fourth.

"Overall I thought we actually had a pretty good day," head coach David James said. "Obviously there's still room for improvement, but I saw a little spark from some of our individuals that we need to take that next step.

"Casy and Cory both did a great job. They wrestled tough, smart matches in the finals and showed a lot of the grit and grind that we like to see. It was a good, competitive tournament and it's something we can build on for the regional.

Rowell had a pair of third-period takedowns in his big finals win, getting the first on the edge of the mat with1:15 left for a 4-3 lead. DeShazer tied it with a quick escape, but Rowell scored on another single-leg shot with 15 seconds remaining to make it 6-4 before giving up a last-second escape.

The Duncan senior followed a first-round bye with a 7-4 semifinal win over Lindenwood's Matt Katusin, overcoming a 4-1 first-period deficit for that victory.
