Chaldean All-American Wrestling Wildcat Pounces
By Ray Yono :: Friday, November 12, 2010 :: 58768 Views :: Sports, Art, and Entertainment

Illinois, USA – Foregoing any open tournaments and soft early-season scheduling, Northwestern University (NU) dove headfirst into exciting dual competition to begin the year.   NU made the trek to Stanford University looking to avenge a 27-6 loss to the Cardinal in 2009 and managed to do just that, rallying from a 13-6 deficit to win the dual, 18-16.  Helping to lead the effort was Chaldean wrestler Andrew Nadhir (149 lbs.) posting a major decision victory to ensure a successful debut for first-year head coach Drew Pariano.

Nadhir is a three-time Detroit Catholic League champion, Michigan High School Athletics Association all-state and Detroit News second-team all-state selection.  Nadhir ended his high school career with a 37-29 record in three seasons on varsity while leading the Catholic Central Shamrocks to three district championships and one regional championship.  The young scholar chose Northwestern over Duke and Michigan State choosing to major in economics.

Following a line of Chaldean Wrestlers in his family, and the Chaldean community, Nadhir ranked 13 nationally in the NCAA championships and secured an All-American award.  Andrew’s father was a 2x Michigan State Champion Wrestler for Detroit Catholic Central in ’73 and ’74, followed by his uncle Nemir Nadhir who also was a 2x Michigan State Champion for Detroit Catholic Central in ’76 and ‘78.  Other Chaldean Michigan state champions include Lance Shunia from Walled Lake back in 2004.

“Chaldeans are well known for their wrestling skills,” says Mike Salem or El Cajon, California an avid wrestler.  “Michigan has had many State Champions and we have had a Chaldean wrestler who was national champion in the US Marine Corps, won a silver medal in the U.S. Espoir Nationals, and was an Olympic hopeful, and a Chaldean Russian world champion that dominated Europe and the USSR in the late 70’s.”  Salem refers to Russian world champion Victor Avdishev (Awdisho), an immigrant to the USSR and Gold Medalist in the Europe World in ’76, the Soviet Union National champion in ’78 and ’79, and bronze medal winner in the ’78 World Championships.

The Northwestern Wildcats have garnered preseason recognition in the Intermat Wrestling weight-by-weight rankings with Nadhir’s contribution.  Andrew Nadhir looks to build off his breakout season a year ago and begins his final go-round at Northwestern as the nation's 10th-ranked 149-pounder. Nadhir finished 24-12 overall last year and fell incredibly short of being awarded another All-American at the 2010 NCAA Championships.
