Illini Wrestler #1 in the Nation!

As we are the only comprehensive Illini sports blog on the web, we do like to occasionally bring you news from outside the world of football and basketball. Many of you may not know it, but Illinois has a great wrestling program that has been very strong nationally in recent years. They are currently ranked 9th as a team and, until last weekend, they were undefeated in matches (excluding the Midlands Championships).

One member of the wrestling team is currently ranked #1 in the nation in the 157 pound weight class. His name is Mike Poeta, I thought it was only right that we give him a little publicity and get his name out there. The team has one more wrestling meet at home on February 18th vs. Ohio State. If you are near the Champaign-Urbana area that weekend, go watch the team, see the top-ranked 157 lb. wrestler in the country, and give them all some support.
