Weippert, a 2017 regional qualifier at 125 lbs. and an All-Conference selection in 2015, chose Adrian College over Alma, Mount Union, Graceland University and Grand Valley State University.

“The environment was incomparable,” said Weippert of Adrian. “It feels like home.”

While at Adrian, Weippert plans to study to become a physician assistant. When asked what he believes his biggest challenge at the next level will be, Weippert noted that it will be keeping his weight down.

“I’m excited to reach my full potential in wrestling and in the classroom,” noted Weippert, who plans to continue wrestling at 125 lbs. at the collegiate level.

Weippert has been a constant wrestling standout during his time at Lapeer, but was sidelined for the 2018 campaign because of a shoulder injury. He also played football and ran track during his prep career.

“I want to thank my family, friends, and coaches for supporting my dream of wrestling in college,” said Weippert.
