Northern Illinois junior wrestler Tyler Argue finished in eighth place at 141 pounds Monday at the Midlands Championships in Evanston.

Argue is the first Huskie to place at the Midlands since 2010, when Brian Deutsch took seventh at 157 pounds in 2010.

Argue clinched a spot in the top eight when he scored an 11-3 major decisionagainst George Mason's Sahid Kargbo. After the win, though, he suffered a pair of defeats to finish eighth.

The only other Huskie competing on the second day of the tournament was sophomore Andrew Morse at 157 pounds. After a 3-1 record Sunday, Morse was eliminated after a pin by Columbia' Chad Ryan early in the third period.
