Wrestling National Champ, Nick Walpole

Nick Walpole set records this spring as the first UIndy wrestler to earn a national title. At the NCAA Division II National Championships, Nick competed in the 149-pound weight class and scored a 4-2 win. He finished his season with a 41-3 record and was rewarded with All-American status. “In winning my national title, I felt so excited and satisfied with ending my wrestling career on a high note. I had worked so hard for it, and I am lucky that I was able to accomplish the goal that I’d set for myself. I have lived wrestling. And I’m honored to be able to win this title for such a great university.”
