Corban University wrestler David Rubio, from McKay High School, was a national runner-up this season.

David Rubio is paving the way for future Corban University wrestlers, and he just reached a big milestone last weekend. 

Rubio, one of the original wrestlers in Corban’s 4-year-old program, became the first Warrior to reach an NAIA national title match as he finished runner-up at 165 pounds. 

“It was bitter sweet, obviously, because every competitor and wrestler envisions themselves capping off a season on top of the podium,” said Rubio, a McKay High School graduate. “But nonetheless it felt good. It’s performances and milestones like this that help us build forward here at Corban.”

Rubio won his NAIA semifinal match 3-2 over Life University’s Jack Bass, who was the No. 1 national seed.
