Wartburg wrestling wins 4th straight title, crowns 3 champs

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Wartburg dynasty continues to roll on.  The Knight grapplers had already clinched their 4th straight national title prior to finals night.

They looked dominant in the last session as well crowning 3 individual champions out of 4 wrestlers going in the final session.

Two-time defending champion 133 pounder Kenny Anderson scored a takedown on Ithaca's Alex Gomez in sudden victory to become just the 13th wrestler in division 3 history to win 3 individual titles.

Cole Welter, who's been part of 16 total state and national team championships in his high school and college career, added an individual national title at 165 pounds  Welter defeated Washington And Jefferson's Nate Carr 5-3 to end his time at Wartburg with a bang.

Landon Williams won the second of his career in dominant fashion pinning Anthony Bonaventura of Waynesburg late in the first period at 174, while Ryan Fank came up just short at heavyweight.  He'd fall to James Buss of Loras to finish as national runner up.
