Courtesy: NDSU Athletic Media Relations
Release: February 05, 2013

The North Dakota State wrestling team remained at No. 25 in the latest USA Today/NWCA/AWN Division I Coaches Poll released on Tuesday.

This is the third week this season that the Bison have been ranked in the national top 25 in the coaches' poll. NDSU was ranked No. 24 in late November and rejoined the rankings at No. 25 one week ago.

The Bison are currently in first place in the Western Wrestling Conference standings with three league duals remaining. NDSU has knocked off three ranked opponents this season in No. 14 Wyoming, No. 24 Boise State and No. 25 Old Dominion.

Junior Steven Monk is ranked sixth at 165 pounds by both Amateur Wrestling News and Intermat, and senior Trent Sprenkle is ninth at 125 pounds in both individual polls.

NDSU (7-8, 2-0 WWC) hosts two WWC duals in the Bison Sports Arena this weekend. The Bison host Utah Valley on Friday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. and Northern Colorado on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 2 p.m.
