Vince Dietz (St. Cloud State University): St. Cloud hosted the annual Husky Open this past Saturday, and Vince Dietz came away with a gold medal at the end of the day, kind of. Dietz posted a 3-0 record on the day, including a fall and a major decision, before double-forfeiting with a teammate in the championship bout.
