Grizzlies’ big weekend
The weekend belonged to Adams State student-athletes in a big way. Adams State captured three individual NCAA DII wrestling titles on Saturday night in St. Louis, and track star Brianna Robles won the NCAA II Indoor 5,000-meter title in Kansas. You have to go back to 1982 to find the last time three Adams State wrestlers won national titles on the same night. Adams State head wrestling coach Jason Ramstetter was named the NWCA Division II National Tournament Coach of the Year. Read more about the Grizzlies weekend here.
