MANHEIM, Pa. – The National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) announced the NCAA Women's Scholar All-American Team and individual athletes last week, with Adrian College finishing second in the team standings with a team GPA of 3.12. Colorado Mesa University took home the team title with a collective GPA of 3.32
Combined with the team's highest finish at the Women's College Wrestling Association (WCWA) National Championships, with a 16th-place finish marks the 2019 campaign as one for the history books. Other milestone events for the Bulldogs this year included hosting the first home tournament and home dual for the women's program. This sets a precedent for the future, and the NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics just listed women's wrestling as an 'emerging sport' to gain NCAA status, meaning big things could be happening for the Black and Gold in the future.
In addition to coming in second place as a team, three Bulldogs were named Individual Scholar All-Americans. Senior Autumn Rux, junior Mara Eason, and freshman Zoe Nowicki each picked up the honors, and the three awards puts Adrian tied for the second-most Scholar All-Americans with Colorado Mesa University.
