Garber, Semple to nationals

Waynesburg University had two junior wrestlers qualify for the NCAA Division III championships over the weekend. Nick Garber won the 133-pound title and Corbin Semple was first at 184 pounds.
The national tournament will be held March 5-6 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Garber and Semple qualified for the Division III national championships last season but each came up one match short of All-American status.
Garber avenged an earlier loss to Thiel’s Corey Brown in the 133-pound final with a 6-0 decision. Brown beat Garber, 3-2, at this year’s Presidents’ Athletic Conference championships. Semple, the top seed at 184 pounds, beat Trine’s Nicholas Kraus 10-5 in this year’s finals. Semple won the 197-pound title in 2009.
Garber pinned Charles Holmquest of Manchester in 10 seconds to advance to the semifinals. He decisioned Olivet’s Adam Wilson 9-4 to set up the rematch with Brown.
Semple pinned Case Western’s Peter Heggs is 58 seconds in the first round and decisioned Patrick Morris of Thiel 10-5 in the semis.
