Statistics

We finished 15th at the NCAA Finals, 11-5, 6-3 and placed #5 in the Big Ten behind Iowa, Penn State, Minnesota and Wisconsin, but defeated the Badgers in a dual meet so one could argue we were the #4 Big Ten Team in 2011.

Kellen Russell #1 at Big Ten's (3X Big Ten Champ) and NCAA Finals, Eric Grajeles #2, Sean Boyle #4, Dan Yates #5, Zac Stevens #5, Ben Apland #6, and Justin Zeerip #8; all will go to the NCAA's on March 17-19 at Philadelphia. Anthony Biondo make the NCAA tournament as an at-large. Brandon Zeerip and Hunter Montoya's seasons are over.

Russell wins NCAA Finals

2010 was the last year we had zero NCAA All-Americans and zero Big Ten Champions since I could remember so I researched the subject, and found that the last time the had this happen in the same year was in 1990; it also happened in 1983, 1950, 1935 and 1933.
