Mark Stenberg of Lockport, Ill., has been a member of the Greco-Roman wrestling program for 4 years and competes at 84 kg. A junior at NMU, Stenberg is an industrial technology major and earned a 3.55 GPA this past semester.
During the 2012 summer and fall semesters, Stenberg placed 4th at the USA Wrestling Olympic Trials and 5th at the University Worlds. He is looking to expand on those credentials in the semester to come.
“I’m really looking forward to the winter semester,” said Stenberg. “My goals are to win the US Open, make the Senior World team and place in the top 3 at a senior-level international tournament.”
During NMU’s winter break, Stenberg will be participating in a training camp in Colorado Springs, Colo., before returning to NMU to begin the semester.
