Baxter forfeits title at Augsburg (Wrestling)

November 20, 2011

St. John’s University senior Dustin Baxter of Fairbanks finished second in the 197-pound weight class at the Augsburg Open in Minneapolis.

Baxter, of West Valley fame, competed in the more premier gold bracket.

The top-ranked wrestler in NCAA D3 at 184 pounds, Baxter bumped up a weight class and won his first three matches to reach the championship match.

But the two-time All-American had to forfeit the title due to an injury.
