Campus clippings: Burrell graduate Walsh doubles up for Lehigh
College Football Videos
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.
Sophomore Brian Heinle (St. Joseph) and freshman Mike Connelly (St. Joseph) have been key backcourt players for the Bobcats (9-12). Heinle is averaging 10.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists, while Connelly's statline includes 7.1 points and 2.1 rebounds per game.
Heinle has scored in double figures in nine games, while Connelly has done so eight times.
Freshman guard Lindsey McKamish (Fox Chapel) has played in 16 games, including six starts for the Lady Bobcats (10-11). She is averaging 2.4 points and 1.8 steals in 17.5 minutes per game. She scored a season-high 11 points against Westminster.
Penn State Behrend
Senior Clay Altemose (Apollo-Ridge) was a part of three winning events in Behrend's 1291⁄2-1241⁄2 loss to St. Vincent. Altemose won the 100-yard backstroke (52.53 seconds) and 100 butterfly (53.53), and helped the 200 medley relay team to victory.
