Huntley wrestled his last regular-season match Friday night at Cliff Keen Arena, winning against Purdue’s Drake Stein with an impressive 16-1 technical fall.

Michigan secured its place in the top three of the Big Ten with two wins this weekend.

With dominating wins at Maryland and Rutgers, the eighth-ranked Wolverines guaranteed themselves at least a third-place finish in the Big Ten.
