Iowa wrestler Cory Clark didn’t know how to applaud immediately after winning the NCAA 133-pound category pretension on Saturday night.
But his manager certain did.
After clinching the championship over South Dakota State’s Seth Gross, Clark quietly walked over to Iowa associate conduct manager Terry Brands.
The confused manager flung his arms around Clark and motionless he wanted some of what Gross was having.
“I freaked out,” Clark said, referring to his greeting to the victory. “I didn’t know what to do; kind of out of it out there. (Brands) said, ‘Throw me. we go, ‘No.’ He goes, ‘Throw me.’ we said, ‘All right.’ we grabbed him and threw him. So that’s what happened.
“I don’t know if he wants you — he substantially wants it to seem like we tossed him for some reason. we didn’t wish to chuck him; he wanted thrown. He was fired up.”
For a program that hasn’t won an particular pretension given 2014, Clark’s win is one that Iowa won’t shortly forget.
It’s also one that Brands may be feeling in his back for a few some-more days.
