Cole Konrad, Minnesota
JR, HWT, Freedom, Wis.

Konrad handed two-time defending NCAA Champion Steve Mocco of Oklahoma State his first loss since his freshman season at the NWCA/Marines All-Star Classic on Monday night in Stillwater, Okla.  In double overtime, Konrad earned a penalty point  to take a 2-1 lead after Mocco was called for hooking his hands. He then scored a reversal with nine seconds to go to earn the 4-1 victory. Mocco had defeated Konrad in all three meetings a year ago, including an overtime victory in the finals at the NCAA Championships.

Last Saturday, Konrad earned three straight wins to claim the heavyweight title at the Auggie Open in Minneapolis.
