Valiquette Named All-American Scholar
Posted: Friday, March 9, 2007
UW-Eau Claire senior wrestler Lance Valiquette (Auburn, WA) has been named to the NCAA Division III All-American Scholar Wrestling Team.
The award is presented by the NCAA Division III Wrestling Coaches Association.
Only wrestlers who qualify for the NCAA national tournament and possess a 3.00 or higher cumulative GPA are eligible for the honor.
Valiquette was the lone Blugold wrestler to compete in the NCAA tournament last weekend. The 165-pounder lost both of his matches by 9-6 decisions and finished the season with a 30-13 record. The Blugold team captain was the conference runner-up at his weight class. He finished his three-year Blugold career with a 69-44 record.
Valiquette, who is 28 years old and has served four years in the U.S. Coast Guard, owns a 3.43 grade point average and will graduate this May with a degree in Kinesiology-Movement Studies. Once graduated, Valiquette will begin work for Universal Forest Products in Janesville.
