Humphrey wrestles to fourth, pins down nationals spot

Next stop, Cedar Rapids.

New Mexico Highlands wrestler Reis Humphrey battled back from a loss in the consolation bracket to win "true fourth" and qualify for nationals March 9-10 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The result was a sweet end for NMHU on Saturday, day two of the 2018 NCAA Division II West super regional hosted at the Wilson Complex. Fifteen schools from across the region -- including No. 4 Cal Baptist and No. 5 CSU-Pueblo and even Simon Fraser from Canada -- gathered to whittle down to 40 nationals qualifiers, four for each weight class.
