Ranked ISU wrestlers

Beau Berkley

133 pounds: No. 6 Earl Hall

Hall has been on a tear since 2015 began, kicking off the new year with a Southern Scuffle victory. Hall is 7-0 so far this month after defeating No. 19 Kevin Norstrem of Virginia Tech in a match ISU wrestling coach Kevin Jackson thought should have been a major decision.

149 pounds: No. 13 Gabe Moreno

Gabe Moreno took a small step back Jan. 18, losing by decision to Virginia Tech’s Sal Mastriani and the road doesn’t get much easier. Gabe takes on Oklahoma State’s Josh Kindig, an NCAA finalist last season, Jan. 25 at Hilton.

165 pounds: No. 4 Michael Moreno

Described by Jackson as “dependable as they come,” Michael Moreno has been just that in the last two duals by scoring bonus points in each of his matches, including one pin. Michael will have arguably the match of the dual on Jan. 25, when he takes on No. 1 Alex Dieringer.

174 pounds: No. 9 Tanner Weatherman

The two-time NCAA qualifier brought the Hilton crowd to life against Virginia Tech, scoring a takedown in the final seconds to beat Zach Epperly and get back on the winning track. 

184 pounds: No. 17 Lelund Weatherspoon

Weatherspoon stays at No. 17 after a close overtime win against unranked Austin Gabel. Jackson said he thought Weatherspoon would have won more handily, but a win is a win. 

197 pounds: No. 3 Kyven Gadson

Gadson continues to be a strong source of bonus points for Iowa State. The two-time All-American has scored bonus points in every dual contest this season except for one. Gadson is also the only 197-pounder from the Big 12 to be ranked in the top 20.
