Wrestling’s Stauffer Set For NCAA Championships
TEMPE, Ariz.—Arizona State wrestling’s Blake Stauffer will represent the Sun Devils in Oklahoma City during this week’s 2014 NCAA Wrestling Championships, March 20-22, at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Tickets for the wrestling championships are available through NCAA.com, while ESPN will be streaming the entire event on WatchESPN.
Stauffer (20-8, 12-1 duals) will take on the No. 9 seed, Michigan’s Domenic Abounader (15-9, 5-6 duals) in the Thursday morning session. Next, Stauffer will see either No. 8 Timothy Dudley of Nebraska or Davidson’s Donald Patrick.
This year, the Neosho, Mo., native went undefeated in the Pac-12 slate, and rounded out the dual schedule by winning 10 of his last 12 matches. Eight of his last 10 wins have come in the form of either a major decision or a tech fall.
Last season, Stauffer qualified for the championships at 174 pounds.
