Newman University wrestler Dustin Reed is headed to the NCAA Division II National Tournament, March 13-14 in St. Louis, Mo.

Reed, a sophomore from Colby, Kan., qualified for nationals after finishing fourth last weekend at the NCAA Division II West Super Regional hosted by Colorado State-Pueblo.

The 125-pounder is the lone NU wrestler to advance. The top four finishers in each weight class qualified for the national tournament.

Jet wrestler Tyler Mies placed 5th at the regional. It marked the end of an impressive first collegiate season for the 149-pound freshman from Andale, Kan. He was named the MIAA Freshman of the Year at the MIAA Conference Tournament Feb. 12.
