MITCHELL, S.D. – Sophomore Marcus Urban (Plankinton, S.D.) was named to the All-Conference Second-Team, it was announced Thursday. It is the first time a DWU wrestler has been named to the Great Plains Athletic Conference All-Conference team since the 2015-16 season when Trever Devestern received First Team honors.
Urban has been a steady fixture for the Tigers in his second season with the Dakota Wesleyan University wrestling team. The sophomore finished the season with a third-place finish at the GPAC Tournament last weekend in Orange City, Iowa.
After losing in the first round, Urban rattled off four-straight matches, defeating each of his opponents by fall to secure the third place finish at the tournament in the 157-pound weight class.
Urban finished the season with a record of 17-7 at 157 pounds, going 7-2 in the team's last three events to help DWU finish the season strong. Urban has become the 27th wrestler since 2007 to receive All-GPAC honors in school history.
