    Default MAC Championship Results (CMU Takes Title)

    CMU Wins Seventh Straight MAC Championships Title

    KENT, Ohio - Central Michigan University won seven individual titles en route to its seventh consecutive Mid-American Conference Wrestling Championships crown on Saturday.

    CMU entered Saturday's championship round with seven individuals in the finals, and all seven - Brandon Carter (149), Steve Brown (157), Trevor Stewart (165), Brandon Sinnott (174), Christian Sinnott (184), Wynn Michalak (197) and Bubba Gritter (285) - emerged victorious. Those seven individuals earned automatic bids to the NCAA Championships in St. Louis in two weeks.

    The Chippewas' 110 team points beat out runner-up Kent State (75.5 points) and third place Northern Illinois (60.5 points). CMU?s run of seven straight conference tournament titles is matched only by Ohio, which also won seven straight from 1970-76. Ohio and Buffalo tied for fourth with 26.5 points while Eastern Michigan finished sixth with 25.5 points.

    A lot has to happen for CMU to win the National Championship. They are sending 9 which is good, but Krueger isn't going which will hurt. Their kids need to perform on the big stage, especially the 4 at the end. They'll need semifinalists, not just all-americans. And they need bonus points. Especially from Michalak.
