Two Wesleyan athletes are going to the NCAA Championships.

Roosa ’13 recently extended the wrestling team’s string of claiming at least one New England Wrestling Association (NEWA) title when he claimed the crown at 174 pounds during the annual NEWA Championships hosted by Trinity Feb. 26-27.

The Cardinals, with two runner-ups, three fifth-place finishers and one sixth-place finisher, placed third in the field of 14 NEWA teams.
