Missouri wrestling continued its dominant conference run Sunday by capturing its seventh consecutive MAC title.
The Tigers, who have been ranked No. 3 in the nation for the majority of the year, had a historic day on multiple fronts as the program reset the conference record with 177 points and had multiple first-time and repeat winners.
Grant Leeth, a Kearney native, won the conference title in the 149-pound class to secure his trip to the NCAA Championships along with Connor Flynn (165) and Willie Miklus (197).
Junior Daniel Lewis became the sixth wrestler in program history to win three conference championships. He won the title in the 184-pound class. Joey Lavallee also won his second consecutive conference title in the 157-pound class.
Never miss a local story.
Redshirt freshman Canteen Marriott, who has been a pleasant surprise throughout the season, took third place in the 184-pound class.
Missouri heads to Cleveland for the NCAA Championships. The opening round starts on March 15.
