By: Jenni Prevett

March 15-- Number 23 Brewton-Parker College Men's Wrestling had a successful showing at the 2016 NAIA Wrestling National Championships with two athletes placing in the Top 6 and finishing 16th in the nation as a team.

Jordan Marshall and Quen Campbell were named All-Americans.

In the 133-pound division, true freshman Jordan Marshall finished 4th with a record of 4-2. Coming into nationals as the number 8 seed, he drew a bye in the opening round, then went on to win his next match by pin over #9 Michael Andreano. He came up short in the quarterfinals to eventual National Champion and #1 seed Jacob Colon from Grand View by pin. In the consolation round, Marshall won his next match against #6 Blayse Terukina to place in the top 8 and earn an All American status. His next victory was against #12 Joshua Crager by major decision of 13-4, and then got a win by decision over #3 Jake Sinkovics of University of the Cumberlands, who had beaten him in the finals at regionals. However, in the third-place match, he came up just short, falling by a major decision of 12-2 to #4 David Berg of Midland.

In the 141-pound division, true freshman Quen Campbell finished 6th with a record of 5-3. Campbell came into nationals unseeded. After winning his opening match by fall against #9 Matt Landgraff, he then lost in the next round by a major decision of 22-8 to #8 Marcello Sierra of Lindenwood-Belleville, forcing him into the consolation bracket. Campbell got a bye and then won against Christian Mesa of Hastings by decision 9-5. His next match made him an All American with a victory by fall over #11 Nathan Ryan of Briar Cliff. Next up was #5 Shonn Roberts of Great Falls, where Campbell won by decision 9-2. However, he came up just short the next two matches, falling by a decision 6-4 to #1 Tyler Fraley of Williams Baptist and again in the 5th place match against Kevin Kelly of Benedictine by decision 7-6.

Two other BPC Barons also competed in the tournament. In the 149-pound division, Adrain Gomez finished 1-2. In the 125-pound division, Randy McCary Jr finished 0-2.

Coach Tim Mitchem had this to say about the historic outcome: “I think we had a great weekend at nationals. These guys had fire in their eyes and had something to prove. We were not looked upon as one of the top programs going into this weekend, but the wrestling community knows us now. It was a nice surprise how these freshmen went out there like they had no care in the world. That is what I want to see. That’s why these two freshmen became All Americans. I’m looking forward to next year with the majority returning and some new faces. The future is bright for this team and program.”

Athletic Director Daniel Prevett agrees. “Wrestling has become our brightest program in the last couple of years and they are set up for a promising future. Coach Mitchem does a great job getting his guys to buy into the underdog role. I’m very proud of the way these student-athletes represented Brewton-Parker and what we stand for.”
