Iowa heavyweight Sam Stoll and 141-pounder Vince Turk will be suspended for a violation of team policy and rules for the Hawkeyes’ season-opener against Kent State on Nov. 9, Iowa head coach Tom Brands announced Wednesday.

“This program holds its wrestlers to a high standard and our team expects everyone to meet those standards,” Brands said in a release. “When a student-athlete falls short of those expectations, it is the coach’s job to hold them accountable.”

Brands previously said that Stoll would be suspended for the match on Sept. 25, when he spoke at the Grid Club in Davenport, Iowa.

Stoll suffered a gunshot wound to the knee in June, but is now healthy. Stoll was charged with falsely reporting to law enforcement following the incident.

“Sam and Vince have accepted the consequences of their actions,” Brands said in a release. “The infractions were a first for both men, and I am very pleased with their response. We are moving forward.”

Stoll placed fifth at the NCAA Championships in 2018 following a fourth-place finish at the Big Ten Championships. He won the Gorriarian Trophy for the most pins in the least amount of time with 3 falls in 8:50.

Turk also qualified for the NCAA Championships last season after placing fifth at the Big Ten Championships. He posted a 15-10 record on the year, including a 6-4 mark in duals. Turk closed his year out by winning the Most Improved Award at the team’s annual banquet.
