Junior Isaac Jordan wrapped up his season as a national runner-up for the Wisconsin wrestling team at the 2016 NCAA Wrestling Championships on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.
Jordan’s bid for a perfect record ended by three-time national champion Alex Dieringer (33-0) of Oklahoma State and Jordan finished with a stellar 29-1 record on the season.
Jordan dropped a 6-2 decision to Dieringer at 165 pounds but held the four-time All-American to his tightest match of the tournament. Jordan became Wisconsin’s first finalist since 2014.
Wisconsin has had 15 individual runner-up finishes in program history.
UW finished in 23rd place in the team standings with 20 team points. Fellow Big Ten Conference member Penn State took the national team title with a total of 123 team points.
