Naperville North graduate Eric Tannenbaum will wrestle for the 165-pound national title on Saturday in St. Louis at the NCAA wrestling national championships.
The Michigan senior will face defending national champion Mark Perry of Iowa. Tannenbaum beat Perry 7-1 to win the Big 10 title two weeks ago.
To advance to the championship round, Tannenbaum beat Mack Lewnes of Cornell 4-0 in the semifinals on Friday night.
Another former North standout, Iowa State sophomore Nick Fanthorpe, will wrestle for seventh place at 133 pounds. Fanthorpe, who lost in the quarterfinals on Friday morning, will face Navy's Joe Baker.
Fanthorpe, the Big 12 champion at 133, won his first match in the consolation bracket, but lost the second one 4-2 to Minnesota's Mack Reiter.
