David Welch ’17 Captures NCAA Division III National Championship in Wrestling

March 22, 2016

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA – For the first time in school history, a Roger Williams University student-athlete has captured the title of an NCAA Division III National Championship. Up against top competition in the March 12 tournament in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, David Welch made RWU history with a 5-4 win to become the first Hawk to claim an NCAA national championship.

Head Wrestling Coach Jon Egan credits Welch’s victory to the athlete’s dedication to training and serving as the team’s wrestling captain, a role in which he inspired each of his six teammates to put their best effort forward at the national tournament and place 15th overall as a team.

"We work so hard to get guys on the All-American podium and David eclipsed that goal by being only the fifth NCAA champ from an all-New England school," Egan said. "With regards to recruiting, we are on the national map now. David shows all future wrestlers that if you focus and sacrifice, anything is possible."
