Two members of the Lakeland College wrestling team, senior Paul Hartt and sophomore Adam Sutter, are ranked in the latest Brute-Adidas National Wrestling Coaches Association Division III rankings, released on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
Hartt (Port Charlotte, Fla.), who was ranked No. 4 in the 197-pound division in the previous rankings, moves up to the No. 3 spot after going undefeated at last Saturday's Border Duals Meet at UW-Whitewater with two pins to his credit. He is now 24-1 on the season, with his only loss occurring nearly a month ago in an overtime battle with UW-Eau Claire's Josh Hulforty, who is the No. 6 ranked wrester in the country at 197.
Sutter (Gladstone, Mich.) joins the national rankings for the first time in his career at the No. 8 spot at 285 after also tallying an undefeated weekend at UW-Whitewater. He is currently 26-2 this season with one of his losses coming at the hands of the top-ranked wrestler in the heavyweight division at the time, Knox College's Jaron Rutledge, who has since slipped to the No. 4 spot.
Hartt, Sutter and the rest of their teammates will look to further test their talents at this weekend's tough Pete Willson Invite at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill., which will include five nationally-ranked schools among other talented opponents.
Meet start time on Friday, Feb. 1, is set for 2 p.m., and will resume on Saturday at 10 a.m.
