Dustin Baxter of Fairbanks was the top finisher for the Saint John’s University wrestling team last season.

This season he figures to go all the way, a feeling shared by the National Wrestling Coaches Association.

Baxter, of West Valley fame, is ranked No. 1 nationally at 184 pounds in the NCAA D3 preseason team rankings relased by the NWCA.

A three-time national qualifier and two-time All-American, Baxter won 26 of 34 matches last season and finished third at the D3 Championships.
