Three Cyclones earned All-America honors in freestyle wrestling at the FILA Junior Nationals in Las Vegas last weekend.

True freshman Lelund Weatherspoon led the group, placing first at 79 kilograms (174 pounds), defeating Michigan Wrestling Club’s Jordan Wohlfert for the title. Weatherspoon won 10 of the 11 periods he wrestled en route to the title.

Weatherspoon redshirted the 2012-13 season for the Cyclones.

Redshirt freshman Logan Molina placed third at 74 kilograms (163 pounds), and true freshman Derek Swarm placed seventh at 55 kilograms (121.25 pounds).

The annual tournament is open to wrestlers between 18 and 20 years of age. Five other ISU true freshmen also competed in the event.
