SPRINGFIELD, Mo-Thursday, Nixa senior Joe Velliquette signed his letter of intent to wrestle at the University of Pennsylvania next year.
Along with a D1 scholarship, the Eagle wrestler has his eyes on a 3rd straight state championship.
Velliquette won at the 106 and 126 pound level the past two seasons.
This year, Velliquette will compete at 138 pounds in class 4 for his senior year before wrestling at Pennsylvania.
"Well I felt U-Penn could really meet my goals and could help me reach to the point where I want to get in my life. I feel like that was the best option, it was the most balanced for me and it felt right when I went there," said Joe Velliquette.
