Broncos wrestler Cusatis is a rising star
In just three years, Shawn Kelley has produced two NAIA All-American wrestlers. And, this season the Bronco coach might have number three on his roster.
Junior Brad Cusatis from Beatrice is a rising star for the Bronco wrestling team.
This past weekend he won the 157 pound weight class in the Broncos annual Quality Open.
Brad won 4 matches on Saturday. He won two bouts by decision and two by "technical fall."
Since the Bronco wrestling program began four years ago, Coach Shawn Kelley has had two NAIA All-Americans including, current Bronco senior Jameon Rush.
Rush finished 5th at nationals a year ago.
And, he took home third place at the Hastings open in the 165 pound class.
Cusatis said winning this weekend has given him the confidence to be the next Bronco All-American.
The UNK Lopers placed five of its wrestlers in the top six in this tournament Saturday. Sophomore Russ Brunkhardt won six straight bouts to finish in 3rd place in the 184 pound division.
Freshman Nathan Westerby of Grand Island won 4 of 6 bouts to finish a very respectable fourth place in the 197 pound division
