DURHAM, N.C.—The Duke University wrestling team turned in an outstanding season in the classroom in 2013-14 ranking sixth among all Division I programs. In addition, redshirt sophomore Conner Hartmann was selected to the National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Academic Team for his excellence on the mat and academically.

The Blue Devils, after finishing ninth a year ago, moved up three spots to the No. 6 slot with a 3.304 team grade point average. Duke led all ACC squads with Virginia Tech being the other ACC team represented with a 3.103 GPA. Harvard topped the list with a 3.37. Hartmann was one of six ACC wrestlers selected as Duke was one of three conference teams to have an individual represented.

Hartmann, an economics major, turned in a phenomenal year for the Blue Devils. The Port Orchard, Wash., native took fifth place at the NCAA Championships, becoming the second Duke wrestler to earn All-America honors. Hartmann finished the year with a career-best 27-11 record and took third at 197 pounds at the ACC Championships. A two-time NCAA qualifier, Hartmann turned heads at the NCAA Championships by upsetting the No. 10, No. 7 and No. 11 seeds en route to taking fifth overall. He was one of three unseeded wrestlers to earn a spot on the podium.

The Blue Devils, facing their toughest schedule in program history, finished the year 6-15 overall and took 29th of 72 teams at the NCAA Championships.
