This weekend the New England Wrestling Associating championships will be held on February 26th and 27th at Trinity College.  Williams won this tournament the past two years and is looking for a three-peat.  The team title will be closely contested with Williams, Wesleyan, Springfield, Johnson and Wales and Rhode Island College all vying for the championship.  What’s at stake for the individual wrestlers is a trip to the NCAA Nationals that will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin at Lacrosse on March 11th and 12th.

Winners of each weight class receive an automatic berth to nationals.  In addition, the conference has four “wild card” selections that the coaches will select at the conclusion of the tournament.
