WRESTLING RECRUITING CLASS IS RANKED 10TH IN THE NATION

InterMat Division I annual class rankings announced that Old Dominion University's wrestling recruiting class ranks among the nation's elite for the second consecutive year. The team, headed by coach Steve Martin, currently ranks tenth in the nation.

Old Dominion has five nationally ranked wrestlers: James Nicholson, Billy Chamberlain, Kyle Hutter, Jesse Strawn and Matt Edmondson along with junior college national champion Matt Collum. ODU is the only CAA team in the top 30, and joins Lehigh, Oklahoma State and Penn State as the only programs to have signed at least five nationally ranked wrestlers by InterMat.

Last season, ODU captured the Virginia Intercollegiate State Championship and placed second in the Colonial Athletic Association Championships.
