After a 3-1 upset win over a top-ranked opponent on Saturday, NIACC freshman wrestler Chase McCleish was selected as the ICCAC wrestler of the week for the week of March 22-28.
McCleish, who is ranked No. 8 at 184 pounds by Intermat, is 4-3 this season and is the second highest ranked ICCAC wrestler behind Indian Hills' third-ranked Deron Pulliam.
The Newman Catholic grad is the third NIACC wrestler to win the wrestler of the week award. Clarence Lee-Green and Christian Minto also won the award this season.
The Trojans are back in action on April 21 at the NJCAA Division I national tournament in Council Bluffs.
Waldorf's Boerjan named NSAA player of the week
Waldorf senior Benjamin Boerjan finished fourth at the Graceland Spring Invitational over the weekend. The top-five finish was enough to earn him recognition as the NSAA men's golfer of the week.
Boerjan carded back-to-back rounds of 3-over 75 at Mozingo Lake Golf Course on Friday and Saturday.
Finishing at 6-over par 150, Boerjan was just four shots off from an individual title at the tournament. His stellar performance helped lead the Warriors to a third place team finish.
