    Way Too Early Lineup Look: 2022-2023 Iowa Hawkeyes

    Apr 4, 2022

    There was a lot of talk about how much firepower the Iowa Hawkeyes would be losing in 2022-2023 with the departure of Austin Desanto, Jaydin Eierman, Kaleb Young, Alex Marinelli, and Michael Kemerer. However, a huge return of a 3X national champion, national title contender transfer, and some key upperclassmen that have been on a title-winning team will keep the Hawks in the trophy contention hunt.

    Seven Top Women's Takeaways From The U23 World Championships

    Nov 8, 2021

    Ukraine won its first World team title in Belgrade and did so in spectacular fashion. Of its nine athletes, seven picked up medals, five reached the finals and three earned gold. The team was led by Olympic Team member Alina Akobiia, who unfortunately had to miss the Games after damaging ligaments in her elbow. She proved here that she’s a tier above everyone on the U23 level, pinning each of her opponents prior to the finals (where she controlled Russia’s Kristina Mikhneva). Other highlights included Solomiia Vynnyk defeating talented Olympian Anastasia Nichita of Moldova in a contentious 4-4 criteria bout and Anastasiia Lavrenchuk and Anastasiya Alpyeyeva commandingly taking titles at 65 kg and 72 kg respectively. This bodes well for Ukraine’s Senior-level future. None of the five women that represented Ukraine at the Olympics — where it picked up two bronze medals and a fifth-place finisher — were in attendance in Serbia, showing the serious depth and wide range of stars that are entering their Senior-level lineups. Ukraine will, without a doubt, be entering the upper echelon of international women’s wrestling over the next quad as its young stars compete for World Team spots with its talented veterans.
