Yet Another Milestone
The Cowboy wrestling team trailed only Iowa State in all-time dual wins entering the 2011-12 season. After the Cowboys defeated the Cyclones on Jan. 22, they took sole possession of first place on that list. Here’s a look at the all-time standings:

Most All-Time Dual Wins (Through Feb. 23, 2012)
1. Oklahoma State   1,022-114-23     0.892
2. Iowa State           1,015-286-20     0.776
3. Oregon State       971-315-28        0.750
4. Iowa                     906-219-31        0.797
5. Minnesota            892-424-24        0.675

7. Navy                    850-286-26        0.743
8. Penn State          842-297-37        0.732

10. Michigan            751-328-26        0.691

Big 12 Champs
With Oklahoma State’s win over Oklahoma in Norman, the Cowboys clinched the inaugural Big 12 wrestling regular season championship. For the first time, the league’s four wrestling squads are playing a six-match, double round-robin conference schedule to determine a regular season champion.

Of Oklahoma State’s athletes who have started a dual, three are still unbeaten. No. 2 Jamal Parks is 27-0 and No. 3 Chris Perry is 23-0.  Alan Gelogaev, although he lost to Chad Hanke at the Reno Tournament of Champions, will finish the season with a 24-0 record because Hanke is taking an Olympic redshirt year and the bout does not count toward his record. Gelogaev is out the rest of the year with an injury.

Big 12 Sweep
If the Cowboys defeat the Tigers Friday night, it will mark the eighth time that Oklahoma State has finished undefeated in Big 12 duals. Since the inaugural season in 1997, OSU has gone without a  conference loss in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2006.

‘Z’ Makes SI’s “Faces in the Crowd”
Heavyweight wrestler Alan Gelogaev was one of six athletes featured in the Feb. 13 edition of Sports Illustrated’s “Faces in the Crowd” after picking up a pair of top-10 wins over Levi Cooper (Arizona State) and Matt Gibson (Iowa State). SI has been running the feature highlighting standout amateur athletes since 1956.

Oliver Picks Up 4th/5th Big 12 Honor
Oliver was named the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week on Feb. 13 and Feb. 20 for his performance in the NWCA National Duals. He helped lead the Cowboys to the NWCA Mat Mayhem Stillwater region title as he downed two ranked opponents including a 7-3 decision over No. 2 Logan Stieber of Ohio State. He also won two major decisions over ranked opponents in the final round a week later. Last season, Oliver became the first Big 12 wrestler to be honored three times in one season, making this the fourth and fifth conference honors of his career.

‘Z’ Best in the Big 12
Oklahoma State heavyweight starter Alan Gelogaev was selected as the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week on Jan. 23 for his pair of top 10 wins, including a 6-1 win over No. 9 Levi Cooper of Arizona State and a 13-1 major decision over No. 10 Matt Gibson of Iowa State. It was his first time to receive the award and the first honor for OSU this year.

Record Keepers
When Oklahoma State edged Iowa, 17-16, on Jan. 7, its win was much more than just upsetting the No. 1 team on their home mat in front of a sold out crowd. The Cowboys ended the Hawkeyes’ unbeaten dual streak at 84, keeping their own record-streak of 84, set from 1959-66, tied for the best ever. OSU also bookended the Hawkeyes’ streak, defeating them on Jan. 5, 2008, in their last loss before it began.

Welcome to the 100 Club
With his 5-0 championship performance at the Reno Tournament of Champions, OSU senior Jamal Parks became the 34th wrestler in school history to reach 100 career wins. The 149-pounder now holds a 116-22 record and ranks 18th all-time at OSU in career wins. A win against Missouri would tie Parks with head assistant coach Eric Guererro for 17th place on the list with 117 wins.

Byers, Too
Cayle Byers has also reached the 100-win mark in his career. Although his record at Oklahoma State is 20-3, his career mark sits at 104-21 when his 84-18 record at George Mason is included in the tally.

Jordan Fall-Iver
What OSU 133-pounder Jordan Oliver has done so far this year is nothing short of remarkable.  The junior’s 21-1 record includes 14 falls (nine in the first period), two technical falls and four major decisions. His pins:

11/25     Shayden Terukina        Iowa State           F;2:38
12/4       No. 10 David Thorn      Minnesota            F;2:16
12/11     Derek Geiges               Oklahoma            F;1:30

NWCA All-Stars
The NWCA All-Star Classic wrapped up its 46th edition Nov. 21 in Tempe, Ariz. Cowboy wrestlers Jordan Oliver and Jamal Parks both put together impressive showings as each came home from the event with a win. Oliver took down one of the top wrestlers in the country, defeating third-ranked B.J. Futrell of Illinois, 8-7. Parks stormed past Arizona State’s Joel Smith with a 17-4 major decision.

Family Ties
Coach John Smith coaches three of his nephews this year. Chris Perry is the son of Smith’s sister, Cathy, and Zach White and Matt White are the sons of Smith’s sister, Mary Ann. Blake Rosholt is the youngest of the Rosholt family. His older brother Jake was a three-time NCAA champion at OSU and another older brother, Jared, was a three-time All-American for the Cowboys. His older sister Jesyca was an all-Big 12 soccer player for Oklahoma State as well. Dallas Bailey’s father, Leo, was a two-time All-American wrestler for the Cowboys in 1983 and 1986.

Up Next
After the Cowboys take on the Tigers, they will travel to Columbia, Mo., to try for a third-straight Big 12 tournament title on March 3. OSU then has a couple weeks off before competing at the NCAA Championship in St. Louis, Mo., March 15-17.
