National Wrestling Hall of Fame

Inductee: Lowell Lange

A car accident possibly stopped Lowell Lange from becoming the first four-time NCAA champion in wrestling. After an outstanding career at West Waterloo High School, Lange won the 1947 NCAA title at 137 pounds for Cornell College as a true freshman. The accident sidelined him for the entire 1948 season, but he came back to win titles in 1949 and 1950.
