Mizzou wrestling assistant Alex Clemsen becomes head wrestling coach at Maryland
This is a very well-deserved promotion for Clemsen, who has been one of Brian Smith’s assistants for the last five years, after previously coaching at Virginia.
Here’s the quick run down of everything that Clemsen helped Missouri accomplish in his five years:
In five seasons on staff, Clemsen helped coach Mizzou wrestlers to three NCAA Titles, 22 All-America honors and 29 individual Conference Championships.
Here’s the release from the Maryland athletic department, announcing Clemsen’s hire. In that release, it’s mentioned that Clemsen is an “elite recruiter” — that’s something Missouri will have to replace.
Mizzou baseball beats Missouri State, 6-2
After a tough weekend series against the top-5 Georgia Bulldogs, Missouri rebounded with a 6-2 win over Missouri State on Tuesday.
The Tigers were paced by a Kameron Misner home run, his tenth of the year, and got eight shut-out innings of five-hit ball in a combined effort before the Bears scored two in the top of the ninth.
In other baseball-related news, D1Baseball.com updated its postseason projections on Tuesday and now has Missouri as a three seed in the Corvallis, Ore., regional. This has a particularly enticing matchup, however, as Missouri would face Illinois, the two-seed, to start that regional.
Mizzou softball sweeps double-header against SEMO
Mizzou softball scored late in both wins of a double-header against SEMO, beating the Redhawks 4-3 and 4-1 on Tuesday.

Kimberly Wert hit her team-leading 17th home run of the season in the first game.
Mizzou moves to 29-18 on the season.
