WrestlerCurrently ranked #1 in the country, the Auggie wrestling team is in pursuit of their tenth NCAA Division III national championship.

Working hard over the winter break, the Auggies traveled south to soak up some sun at the Sunshine Open in Lakeland, Florida where they claimed 10 weight-class champions and 21 placewinners. Back in the north country, the team scored a 31-10 victory at Augustana, S.D. The weekend of January 13 the team will take on some of the top-rated wrestlers at the National Wrestling Coaches Association/Cliff Keen Division III National Duals at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.

Senior Marcus LeVesseur’s win in Florida extended his college winning streak to 133 matches, the second-longest in college wrestling history.
