BLOOMSBURG--The National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the 2010 NWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals will be presented by Hibiclens. The two day tournament will be held January 9-10, 2010, at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The Bloomsburg University wrestling team is one of 16 Division I teams that has been invited to the event.

"This is a great honor for our wrestling program," said Bloomsburg head coach John Stutzman. "I am excited for the student-athletes as our program continues to grow. It really does show that you can compete at a high-level here at Bloomsburg. Still, we are not where we want to be, but we are making strides to achieving our team and individual goals. To be part of the NWCA duals is truly a great accomplishment for everyone involved with Bloomsburg University athletics."
