Former University of Iowa 2-time NCAA champion Matt McDonough swept Cornell’s Nahshon Garrett in a best-of-three challenge series and will represent the United States at 57 kg at the 2014 University World Championships in Pecs, Hungary on July 8-12.

McDonough defeated Garrett, 16-10, 15-5. He scored 14 of the final 16 points to erase an 8-2 deficit in the opening round, and built a 6-0 lead en route to a technical fall in Round 2.  McDonough is the 4th Hawkeye to make a US team that is wrestling in a World Competition this summer.
