    EVANSTON, Ill. - Not even a month removed from turning in their best NCAA Championships performance in 15 years, the Northwestern wrestling team went right back to work in a variety of off-season tournaments, where a number of Wildcats garnered impressive individual honors.

    Please note that all Wildcat wrestlers competed unattached from Northwestern University.

    April 13-16, Northwestern hosted The University/ FILA Cadet National Wrestling Championships for Freestyle & Greco-Roman wrestling, where over 850 entries from across the United States competed.

    In the Greco-Roman division, freshman Dustin Fox (Galion, Ohio/Galion) placed second at 120 kg. and freshman Mike Tamillow (Oak Park, Ill./Fenwick) took seventh at 96 kg.

    Three `Cats posted top-five finishes in the Freestyle division: junior Matt Delguyd (Mayfield Heights, Ohio/Mayfield) claimed third at 96 kg., freshman Jake Herbert (Wexford, Pa./North Allegheny) took fourth at 84 kg. and Tamillow finished close behind in fifth at 96 kg.

    Fox was sixth at 120 kg. and freshman Ryan Lang (North Royalton, Ohio/St. Edwards) took eighth at 66 kg.

    A number of `Cats also traveled to Las Vegas from April 27-30, where they competed in The FILA Junior National Wrestling Championships. Fox was the National Greco-Roman Champion at 120 kg, while Herbert earned the National Freestyle Championship at 84 kg.

    Tamillow left Vegas with a third-place trophy in Freestyle at 96 kg.

    Lang competed in the US Open Tournament, which is a qualifying tournament for the World Championship team. He posted a 3-2 record in the tournament.

    By placing at these events, all of the aforementioned Wildcats have put themselves in a potential position to represent the United States in their respective age divisions at the World Championships.
