Wrestling

Most college wrestlers never get a chance to pull an upset.

Lehigh senior wrestler Shane Welsh did it twice on back-to-back days.

Welsh, a Burrell graduate, took down two nationally ranked opponents in a pair of recent matches to earn Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association Wrestler of the Week honors.

The defending EIWA champion at 149 pounds, Welsh entered last weekend's action unranked but defeated No. 9-ranked Nick Lester of Oklahoma, 3-2, and No. 7 Scott Sakaguchi of Oregon State, 7-5, in consecutive matches.

Welsh is 12-5 this season.
