INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The NCAA announced its list of at-large bids for the Division I Wrestling Championships next week in Pittsburgh, and for the second straight year Clarion is represented as Greg Bulsak earned one of five at-large spots at 197 pounds.
Bulsak was one of seven allocated wrestlers entering last week’s EWL Championships after an excellent 2018-19 regular season. The redshirt sophomore went 17-6 over the course of the season and was ranked 16th in the most recent NCAA coaches’ panel on March 1, as well as 23rd in the NCAA RPI on that same day. Surely his most significant achievement this season came at the Cliff Keen Invitational when he finished sixth in a loaded field, including a win over 13th-ranked Tom Sleigh of Virginia Tech.
With Bulsak’s selection to the field, Clarion will now be represented by two competitors at the NCAA Championships. Evan Delong earned one of the league’s three automatic qualifier bids at 165 pounds thanks to a win in the third-place match over George Mason’s Colston DiBlasi, with the latter also picking up an at-large bid to the field. It is the fourth straight year that the Golden Eagles will send multiple wrestlers to the national tournament.
Seeding and brackets will be unveiled during the Selection Show on NCAA.com tomorrow at 6 p.m. and brackets will be sent out and posted on NCAA.com at the conclusion of the show.
