Set for Nationals

Brandon Womack, a 2017 NCAA All-American wrestler, competes in the 2018 National Championships starting Thursday in Cleveland.

Scottsboro alum Brandon Womack is once again about to wrestle on the national stage.

The 2017 All-American collegiate recently posted a third-place finish in the 2018 EIWA Championships. Womack took the third by winning the third-place match 174-pound weight class.

Next for Womack and his teammates is the 2018 NCAA Championships, which are Thursday through Saturday in Cleveland.

An All-American at 165 pounds a year ago, Womack wrestles sixth-seeded Bo Jordan of Ohio State in the 174-pound bracket. A win would advance him to meet either 11th-seeded David Kocer of South Dakota State or Virginia’s Kimball Bastian.

Womack enters the national championships with an 18-9 record with two wins via pin, 14 via decision, one via technical fall and one via a major decision.

Womack finished his historic high school career at Scottsboro as a six-time state champion, winning a national record 422 matches, 327 via pinfall, with only eight losses. He was 77-0 as a senior, the most wins in an undefeated season in state history.

Womack has 53 career wins at Cornell.
