Nebraska-Omaha retained its No. 1 ranking in NCAA Division II Wrestling Coaches Association poll that was released Tuesday.
The two-time defending national champion Mavericks, who edged Augustana (S.D.) 17-15 in the finals of the NWCA Division II National Duals on Jan. 9 in Cedar Falls, Iowa, received all eight first-place votes in balloting of coaches from around the country to finish with 160 points. UNO has been No. 1 in every poll the past two-plus seasons.
The Nebraska-Kearney wrestling team fell four spots to 12th in the poll. This is the third regular season ranking of the 2010-11 season.
UNK wrestles at Chadron State tonight.
