MigM paills UML grappleis foam defeat

Daily Nebi-asian txfl Reporter
Wherever heavyweight grappler Gary
Albright goes, so goes the Nebraska wres
The Huskers trailed an upset-minded
UNO squad 16-15 heading into the final
match of the evening.
Albright, a junior from Billings, Mont.,
claimed a 5-0 decision over UNO fresh
man Jeff Weeks to give the Huskers an
18-16 dual victory.
Nebraska head coach Bob Fehrs said
he was concerned as the final match
"Obviously every time you go into the
final match with a mathematical chance
of losing, you're going to be concerned,"
Fehrs said. "I was even more concerned
since Gary hadnt wrestled in ten days."
Albright missed the first meet of the
year, the Bison Open, because of a death
in the family.
"I knew I wasnt going to lose," Albright
said. "I was thinking about how bad I was
going to beat him."
Despite winning with relative ease,
Albright said Weeks wasnt a pushover.
"He was strong," Albright said. "He used
his upper body very well, but the UNO
coaches kept telling him to stay away
from the upper body. He didn't use it to
Junior Matt Campbell started the
decision victory over Maverick Mark Wes

Weston, a senior, was a Division II Ail
American last year.
Terry Cook and Mike Monfore, two of
six freshmen on Nebraska's varsity squad,
claimed decisions in the 126 and 134 div
The Mavericks battled back, though,

classes to pull within two team points,
Freshman Dan Boardman put the
Huskers back on track, with a 12-2 deci
sion over Jeff Randall at 167.
UNO came back once again, with deci
sions in the 177 and 190 pound classes to
take the lead, 16-15.
Doug Hassel's 7-5 victory over junior
Kyle Jensen set the stage for Albright's
Last year, the Huskers manhandled the
Mavericks, 30-10. Fehrs said the turn
around this year can be attributed to an
inexperienced Husker squad and a much
improved Maverick team.
"It's a combination of both of those fac
tors," Fehrs said. "UNO has a very good
team. They have four seniors so they had
the advantage of physical maturity."
"Our inexperience showed tonight."
Albright, the NCAA runnerup in the
heavyweight division last year, doesn't
deny the fact that he is the leading con
tender for the title this year, but added
that he has other objectives for this
"My main goal is to win the NCAA's,"
Albright said. "But we have a lot of young
guys on this team and they need help too.
I want Nebraska to have a good team a
few years down the road."
Nebraska will face the Mavs again this
weekend, when they travel to Omaha for
th UNO open.
"That meet's going to be an eye-opener,
Fehrs said. "Iowa State and Oklahoma
State are going to be there, and they're
both ranked among the top five teams in

events with the fraternity was
' a mutual helping experience.
