| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Northwestern's wrestling team placed ninth at the NCAA championships in St. Louis Saturday. And the Wildcats have two All-Americans in redshirt freshman Mike McMullan, who was third in the heavyweight division, and redshirt junior Jason Welch, who was fourth at 157 pounds. McMullan was a 10-seed and he ended up defeating the No. 3 seed, Clayton Jack of Oregon State. Welch's victory gave him a second consecutive All-American honor.

Welch and McMullan also give the Wildcats two All-Americans in six of the last seven years. And as a team, NU has finished in the top 15 at the national championships in seven of the previous eight years.
