April 2021 WIN Magazine Now Available

Be it historically short, the 2021 NCAA wrestling season came to an end last month when a form of all three divisions of national tournaments where held; one year the COVID pandemic cancelled the 2020 national tournament and delayed the start of this season until January.

Nothing was common among the national tournament as a small percentage of fans were actually able to watch, especially in St. Louis’ Enterprise Center when the Iowa Hawkeyes captured the school’s 24th all-time NCAA Div. I team championship while ten All-Americans won individual titles.

Among those champs was Iowa’s 125-pound Spencer Lee and Minnesota heavyweight Gable Steveson, who dominated their weight classes and also later were both named winners of the WIN Magazine/Culture House Dan Hodge Trophy, presented by ASICS.

In this latest issue of WIN, printed on March 30, you will find features on all ten champions as well as notes and quotes of all 10 weight classes in this issue … as well as other stories on the many other college national championships that were held in March.
