David Pletcher

David Pletcher '78 pinned more wrestling opponents in his four-year career than anyone in the history of the sport at Lafayette College. Thirty-six of his 69 career wins came via fall and his overall record of 69-18-4 set a school standard for wins at the time.


As a junior and senior, this strong-armed heavyweight won the East Coast Conference title and competed in the NCAA Division I Championships. He placed in every regular season tournament in which he was entered during his career. Because of his many pins, Pletcher was usually the leader in team points scored. As a junior, Pletcher had 11 pins, including a string of seven in a row. He again had 11 pins as a senior when he set a school record by scoring 83 team points.

Lafayette Athletics, as a partner in the mission of the College, provides an incredibly effective learning experience for student-athletes through competitive NCAA Division I athletics. Lafayette sponsors 23 varsity sports with more than 600 student-athletes.
