Freshman Cort Choate Qualifies for NCAA Championships

Providence, R.I. - After his stellar run last weekend at the EIWA Tournament, rookie Cort Choate has qualified for the NCAA Championships to be held from March 18-20 in Omaha, Nebraska.  Choate won four consecutive bouts in the consolation bracket at 133, upsetting a number of competitors on the way to finish fourth overall in the EIWA.

With his top-five finish, Choate becomes one of just 28 automatic qualifiers from around the country to be selected for NCAA's in his weight class.  His qualification marked the second consecutive year in which Brown has had a national competitor, as Matt Gevelinger '09 competed at nationals last season.
