Quotes and Comments from the National Duals through the Semi-finals



Debbie Sanderson, mother to Cael, on her sons record setting career "The record is something that really snuck up on us. It wasn't till the Midlands that I really heard much about it; I just enjoy getting to see my boys wrestle." Dan Gable, former holder of the NCAA consecutive wins record, on how long the new streak might stand. "Who knows how long the record will stand? There's always someone out there who can beat you......we'll have to see how far Cael stretches the streak out...if he goes the next year and a half unbeaten then it will be awful hard to beat." "It's great to see that the streak will stay at ISU." Mark Schwab, assistant Minnesota coach, on Jared Lawrence's victory over Iowa Hawkeye, Mike Zadick "He doesn't quit, he kept the pressure on Zadick and just kept fighting.....he hit the shot at the end of the match when Zadick was wore down....and found the finish....that match was huge. John Smith, Head Coach of Oklahoma State, on his teams wins during the first three rounds "It's a tough day, but it's good to see us win battles like this." Lincoln McIlravy, assistant Iowa coach, on what Iowa needs to do to stay on top at the end of the year "We have to improve; right now we aren't winning the close-ones. That's the trademark of Iowa wrestling.....we have to win the close ones. We let up too much....Zadicks's match was an example of that....we have a lot of work to do." Mike Moyer, Executive Director of NWCA, on the first day of the National Duals It was a very exciting day....Cael Sanderson setting the record was a huge event to witness....the competition is as tough as ever, with more teams on the same level....there is a lot of parity in wrestling this year."
