Former Prairie du Chien wrestling standout Nick Rogge (2018 graduate) has earned All-American status as a member of the Augsburg University wrestling team. 

Rogge, a junior, became an All-American at the NWCA (National Wrestling Coaches Association) Division III National Championships, which were held Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13 at the Xtream Arena in Coralville, Iowa.

Rogge, ranked 4th nationally and wrestling in the 184# weight class, opened the tournament with a 19-2 third period technical fall over Zachary Thomas (Iowa Wesleyan). He followed that with a first period fall over Seth Gardner (Southern Virginia) in 2:08 and another first period fall over Ryan Schott (Coe College) in 1:11 to advance to the semifinals. In the semifinals, Rogge would lose an 11-6 decision to Paul Detwiler (U.S. Coast Guard Academy). In the consolation semifinals, Rogge would lose by decision 9-6 to Brock Montford (North Central). In the 5th place match, Rogge would again record a first period fall over Ryan Schott (Coe College).

Rogge finished the season at 11-2 with five pins, four technical falls and a major decision, and is now 65-16 in his Auggie career. Nick is the son of Mike and Kris Rogge.
