    Bill Racich, Ursinus Coach Passes

    I wrote a brief tribute to Bill today. It was really tough to get the phone call about this. He had just retired from teaching this spring and seemed to be energized for the future at Ursinus when I last saw him. https://www.d3wrestle.com/bill-racich-passes-away/

    PSU vs. Lehigh, Sunday Dual

    Should be a fun match. Kutler winning close wouldn’t be crazy, but neither would Hall blowing him out.

    DIII Regional Alignment Update

    I suspect it will pass the coaches but will be subject to some vigorous discussion at the convention.

    Division III Championships - March 10-11

    Loras head coach TJ Miller spent five years coaching high school in Louisiana before returning to Iowa in 2015. While he was there, several Louisiana wrestlers went to his alma mater of Wartburg where he wrestled for his father Jim Miller. Now that he is at Loras, some Louisiana wrestlers, including two of their NCAA qualifiers, have gone there.
  11. The Division III Championships take place next weekend in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Brackets will be out on Monday the 6th, but until then... Riley Lefever is working on a 4th title for Wabash. He has never lost to a DIII opponent. Kenny Martin of Wartburg could win a third title, while seven other returning champions are in the mix for a 2nd championship. Lucas Malmberg of Messiah placed 6th at the Midlands and is a 3x NCAA finalist with 170 career wins. 65 of the 100 DIII teams qualified a wrestler to the tournament, and Wartburg is going for their 5th championship in the past six years.
