    Amo (RCC) headed to NCAA Division II Wrestling National Championship

    INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA has released the brackets for the Division II Wrestling Championships that will be held at the Birmingham Crossplex/Bill Harris Arena on March 10-11. The wrestling championships will be a part of the 2017 NCAA Division II National Championships Festival held in Birmingham, Ala.

    This year's Winter Festival will take place March 7-11 at the Crossplex in Birmingham, Ala. and will be hosted by the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the City of Birmingham. National champions will be decided in men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's indoor track & field, and wrestling.

    Augustana had five wrestlers qualify for the Division II National Championships after placing in the top-four at their respective weight classes at the Super Region 3 Championships in Moorhead, Minn. this past weekend.
