NCAA Champs Logan Stieber and Kendric Maple to Headline All-Star Classic

ELSM Staff Writer

Manheim, PA – Building off of last year’s star studded line-up, the All-Star Classic will feature another anticipated “Dream Match-Up” to kick off the college wrestling season on November 2nd at the Patriot Center on the campus of George Mason University.

Two of the biggest names in college wrestling, Logan Stieber of Ohio State and Kendric Maple of Oklahoma, have accepted invitations to participate in the event at 149 pounds and are slotted to match-up at the event.

“You will only see this match up in the All-Star Classic as they won’t be in the same weight class at the national tournament,” said George Mason head coach Joe Russell. “My hat goes off to these two great competitors for agreeing to put it on the line at the NWCA All-Star Classic.”

Maple and Stieber are coming off of nearly identical seasons where both wrestlers were undefeated and capped perfect seasons with NCAA Championships.  Maple posted a 31-0 record at 141 pounds while Stieber posted a 27-0 record at 133 pounds.

Steiber, who has a 60-2 career record, is a 2x NCAA Champion who earned a spot on the U.S. National Team at 60kg this offseason after placing third at the World Team Trials.

Maple enters his final season at Oklahoma as a two-time All-American with a career record of 102-18.  In addition to an NCAA Championship this past year, Maple earned All-American honors in 2011-12 with a 4th place finish at 141 pounds.

“We believe wrestling fans deserve to see stars square off” said Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan. “Logan is a leader in the sport as is Maple.  We are all looking forward to watching these two elite athletes wrestle in the All-Star meet.

The new concept of out of weight class match-ups is expected to create excitement for wrestling fans across the nation to start the college wrestling season.

“I appreciate the vision of Wade Schalles for originally pitching the idea of out of weight class matches, Tom Brands for helping push the idea forward, Tom Ryan and Mark Cody for encouraging and allowing their wrestlers to compete in a true All-Star bout,” said Russell. “November 2 will be an electric night in the Patriot Center.”

The All-Star Classic will take place on November 2nd at 7:15pm on the campus of George Mason University.  To purchase tickets to the event, visit the Ticketmaster website.  For more information on the All-Star Classic, visit the NWCA website and follow the NWCA on Facebook and Twitter.
