Iowa Wrestlers Turn Focus Toward Postseason

By Scott Westerberg, Reporter

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- After Minnesota's upset of top-ranked Penn State on Sunday, the Iowa wrestling team has a chance to share the regular season conference dual title.

But that's not the top priority for the Hawkeyes.

"Individual titles are what we fight for," Iowa 141-pounder Josh Dziewa said. "You don't see banners here in our room saying we're Big Ten dual-meet champions."

"It's not something we're really focused on," Tony Ramos said. "It's by default, because they're not counting the Penn State meet [when Iowa lost to the Nittany Lions in December]."

The big conference prize Iowa is after is awarded March 9, at the Big Ten tournament.

"That's what everyone looks at," Ramos said.
