Missouri wrestling claims tournament championship with title in all 10 weight classes

Sunday, November 14, 2010 | 8:03 p.m. CST

It was a perfect tournament for the Missouri wrestling team.

The Tigers took first place in all 10 weight classes Saturday at the University of Central Missouri Open.

Freshman Alan Waters, a true freshman, swept the 125-pound class to claim his second tournament title of the season. He pinned his first four opponents and won the championship with a 18-3 technical fall. He is 11-0 this season. He also won the championship at the Lindenwood Open two weeks ago.

Brent Haynes, a 2010 NCAA qualifier, went 3-0 and won the crown at 197 pounds. He pinned his first opponent in 43 seconds before winning 9-6 and 7-0 in his final two matches.

Missouri competes at home for the first time this season Sunday with a meet against Lindenwood, Hofstra and Oregon State.
