Northwestern's top-ranked wrestlers Herbert, Lang invited to NWCA All-Star Classic



EVANSTON, Ill. - Northwestern wrestlers Jake Herbert (Wexford, Pa./North Allegheny) and Ryan Lang (North Royalton, Ohio/St. Edward) have been invited to participate in the 41st annual NWCA All-Star Classic held in Dallas, Texas. Herbert will make his second appearance while Lang will make his first.

The All-Star Classic traditionally pits the No. 1 vs. No. 2 wrestlers in each weight class against each other. Herbert and Lang will enter the 2006-07 season ranked No. 1 in their respective weight classes.

The 41st annual NWCA All-Star Classic takes place Nov. 20 at the Dallas Convention Center.

At 141, Lang will face second-ranked Andy Simmons from Michigan State and Herbert will take on Minnesota's Roger Kish, ranked second at 184 lbs. Herbert defeated Nebraska's Jacob Klein in his first All-Star Classic appearance in 2005.

This year marks the first time Northwestern will have two representatives in the same year.

"This event recognizes the elite wrestlers in the country," head coach Tim Cysewski said. "It shows the wrestling world that Northwestern is continuing to evolve as a national power. We take the invitations very seriously and we plan to use this meet to set the stage for the 2006-07 season."
