James R. (Jim) Baumgardner is an American collegiate wrestler.

Baumgardner wrestled at Oregon State University from 1980-1984 after graduating from Roseburg High School in Roseburg, Oregon in 1980. At Roseburg High School, Baumgardner wrestled under National Wrestling Hall of Fame wrestler & Coach Greg Strobel.

Under Oregon State University Head Coach Dale O. Thomas and Assistant Coach Strobel, Baumgardner is the third winningest wrestler in Oregon State history (155) behind Howard Harris (169) and Larry Bielenberg (165). His overall record is 155-40-0 in the 177-Hwt weight categories.[1];[2][3]

With Strobel's influence, partially detailed in the book Strobel: Stories From A Life With Wrestling by James V Moffatt[4], Baumgardner went on to become a driven, successful wrestler. Of the top 26 wrestlers (based on wins) in NCAA history, Jim is tied at 16th place with 155 wins, behind other Oregon Staters Harris (4rth) and Bielenberg (5th). [5]
