SCSU wins team title, Prescott claims individual

St. Cloud State (17-2, 8-0 NSIC) wrote a new chapter in the history of the school's athletic program by capturing the Huskies' first wrestling national championship. 

St. Cloud State freshman Tim Prescott brought home SCSU's fifth NCAA Division II individual championship with a 3-2 victory against top seed T.J. North of Augustana (S.D.).

Prescott ended his trip to the NCAA finals with a perfect 4-0 record and is the first Huskies wrestler to win a national crown since Shamus O'Grady took the top spot at 184-pounds in 2013. He is the first SCSU wrestler to win an NCAA Division II title at 125-pounds.
