|Subject:||Resolution Congratulating Penn State University Wrestling Team's 3rd Straight National Championship|
|On Monday, April 15th, I will be offering a resolution for unanimous consent congratulating the Penn State University wrestling team on their third straight NCAA Division I National Wrestling Championship.
The Penn State wrestling team's three consecutive championships are worthy of congratulations and are even more impressive when acknowledging that this is only the third time in the history of NCAA wrestling that a team has one three straight titles.
In addition to the team level accomplishment, two Penn State wrestlers, Quentin Wright and Ed Ruth, won individual NCAA titles in their respective weight classes and head coach Cael Sanderson was named National Wrestling Coaches Association Coach of the Year.
Just as impressive, of the teams thirty seven student athletes, fifteen were named to the Academic All Big Ten Conference team and wrestler Matt Brown won the Elite 89 Award for the top student athlete at the national championships with a 3.97 grade point average.
Any member who does not cosponsor through this memo can cosponsor on the floor Monday.
