RCTC qualifies nine wrestlers to the National Tournament

The RCTC Yellowjackets had eight individual champions in route to their fifth straight MCAC Championship. This tournament also serves as North District Qualifier for the NJCAA National Tournament. Rochester qualified nine wrestlers for the tournament, which will be held in Council Bluffs, IA on February 24-25.

“The guys wrestled well and seem to be peaking at the right time. This next week of practice will be crucial to fine tune some areas,” noted Coach Randy Rager. “As a team, this has been great group. They won the MCAC/District tournament, MCAC Dual Championship, and I feel that their next step is to win another NJCAA National Championship.”
