Welton put together an amazing postseason run in Class AAA to finish as the PIAA 285-pound runner-up. He started the postseason with his second District 10 Class AAA championship before an outstanding performance at the Northwest regional in Altoona.

Welton had a first-period throw that led to a pin in both the semifinals and championship of the region tournament.
