    Default 33-year-old UIU wrestler Justin Decker 0-2 @ NCAA Div 2 Championships

    One of the great Cinderella stories of recent college wrestling has ended.

    Justin Decker
    , the 33-year-old dairy farmer who resumed his wrestling career at Upper Iowa University after more than a decade, lost both of his matches at the 2010 NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships Friday at Sapp Fieldhouse at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

    Decker, wrestling in the 157-pound bracket for the UIU Peacocks, fell in his opening-round match to Michael Williams, a redshirt freshman from the University of North Carolina-Pembroke, 6-1. That loss sent Decker to the consolation bracket, where he lost a close 3-2 decision to Michael Lybarger, a redshirt sophomore from the University of Findlay (Ohio).

    Yeah that's pretty cool. I have recurring dreams where I have to wrestle a match at my current age. The dreams seem to always include anxiety about making my h.s. weight, and then actually wrestling the match. I usually make the weight but I never seem to wrestle the match. It's nice to see an "old guy" get out there and compete with the young folks.
