Three Lakers qualified for the NCAA championship by claiming a top-three spot in their weight class. Jordan Bushey ’20 (184) and Rocco Russo ’18 (157) both captured the title in their respective weight classes while Evan Corso ’20 was the 133- pound runner-up. Corso and Russo bowed out gracefully on the first day while Bushey advanced to the final day and claimed fourth at the NCAA Championship. With the top eight of each weight class earning All-America status, Bushey collected the 47th All-America honor in the program’s history and became the program’s first All-American since John Spinner ’06 in 2006. Head Coach Mike Howard ’90 has guided the last 18 of those All-Americans during his time at the helm.
