Iowa Wesleyan’s Adaugo Nwachukwu takes center stage in the NWCA All-Star Classic

MOUNT PLEASANT – In just over a year since arriving at Iowa Wesleyan University, Adaugo Nwachukwu has already made a huge impact on the international stage.

Nwachukwu, nicknamed “The Nigerian Nightmare” by Iowa Wesleyan Provost DeWayne Frazier, clinched an NAIA national championship last season and in August she won a bronze medal at the U20 World Championships.

Nwachukwu has a chance to bring Iowa Wesleyan University’s name to its biggest stage yet when they compete in the NWCA All-Star Classic on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Austin, Texas.

Nwachukwu will weigh up to 143 pounds to wrestle McKendree’s Alara Boyd, the 2021 NCWWC champion in 2021 and runner-up in 2020 and 2022, who has enjoyed success on the world stage for the past six years.
