Mercyhurst was selected Wednesday as a host site for the NCAA Division II Super Region I Wrestling Championships in 2019 and 2020.

The Erie-based university will welcome some of the top Division II wrestlers in the country for one of four Super Regionals, which serve as qualifiers for the NCAA Tournament.

The Super Region I tournaments will be Feb. 23, 2019 and Feb. 22, 2020 at the Mercyhurst Athletic Center.

“It’s exciting anytime we can host NCAA events,” Mercyhurst wrestling coach Mike Wehler said. “It’s great exposure for our university and our student-athletes get to compete in our home gym. Getting the bid is also a testament to the athletic department because it shows that we can host a great event and provide a first-class experience for the competing teams and fans.”
