MASON CITY, Iowa – Despite losing heavily in a pair of duals in the past two weeks, NIACC wrestling remained 12th in the latest NJCAA poll released on February 2.

NIACC lost to now second-ranked Labette Community College (KS) 35-9 on January 21, and to top-ranked Iowa Central 41-9 on January 26.

Individually, Jameel Bryant (So., St. Petersburg, FL) at 174 and Basil Minto (Fr., Cape Coral, FL) at 184 both moved up one spot to seventh. Wismit Moinius (So., Naples, FL) dropped from fifth to sixth this month after losing to fourth-ranked Terrel Wilbourn of Iowa Central.

Kirk Sallis (So., Waterloo, IA), who was third last month at 133, dropped two sports to fifth. Sallis did not wrestle in the duals and has yet to wrestle at 133 since break.

The Trojans will continue to see tough competition until the end of the season, starting with a road trip to see 17th-ranked Iowa Lakes tonight.

NIACC will host the 2012 NJCAA North Central District Wrestling Tournament on February 11, which combines Region XI (Iowa) and Region XIII (Minnesota) together to determine which wrestlers go to the National Tournament on February 24.
