Grappler Camargo is MAC Champ

On Mar. 4, senior Alex Camargo (Brook Park, Ohio/Berea) won a MAC championship and became the winningest wrestler in Kent State history in the same match, a 7-2 decision over Central Michigan’s Christian Sinnott.

Camargo tallied a pair of first period takedowns and added another in the second period of the 184-pound final. Camargo passed Nick Nemeth to become KSU’s career win leader with 122.

Coming up just one win shy of All-American honors, Camargo finished 4-2 at the NCAA Division I Championships (Mar. 16-17, 2006) in Oklahoma City.

He finished 35-5 on the year placing him fifth among the most victories in a season by a KSU wrestler.  His 126 career victories rank seventh in Mid-American Conference history.

After winning the Oklahoma Gold Showcase for the second straight season, Camargo started out the year 7-0.  The 184-pound senior placed second at the Body Bar Invitational (Nov. 19) and third at the nationally renowned Southern Scuffle (Dec. 29-30). He defeated eight nationally ranked opponents throughout the season and finished with a team best eight major decisions. Camargo was 17-1 in dual meets and 5-0 in MAC duals.  He also received the Joe Begala Award.  Named after the legendary Kent State coach, the award is presented annually to a KSU wrestler on the basis of academic achievement, wrestling skill and merit.

A four-year starter, Camargo led the Golden Flashes in victories and qualified for the NCAA Championships in each of his last two seasons.  In their final polls of the 2005-06 season The Wrestling Mall and Wrestling International Magazine both ranked Camargo at 184 pounds.
