Cowboys to Wrestle at Junior World Championship

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State wrestlers Alex Dieringer and Austin Marsden are set to compete in the FILA Junior World Championship in Pattaya, Thailand this weekend.

The two competed in Colorado Springs in late May to earn their spots on the U.S. junior world team.

Dieringer defeated Nick Moore of Iowa for the 74kg/163-pound spot, winning the series, 2-0, and Marsden snatched the 120kg/264.5-pound slot for the U.S. when he triumphed over Wisconsin's Connor Medbery, winning the series in two matches.

Dieringer will compete for the 74kg title on Saturday, and Marsden will battle it out for the 120kg title on Sunday. Competition for both weight classes will begin at 1 p.m. local time (1 a.m. central time). Their draws will be announced later this week.

Fans can follow the action online at fila-wrestling.com or on Twitter at @usawrestling.
