Wright Named SoCon Wrestler of the Week
Junior Brandon Wright has been named Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for all competitions from February 2-8.* After moving up a weight class to 174 pounds during the middle of the season, Wright turned in a pair of SoCon victories over the weekend. The junior from Germantown, Tenn., scored a 3-2 win over two-time defending SoCon Champion Bryon Sigmon in the Mocs' furious comeback victory against UNC Greensboro on Saturday. He followed that up with a 14-5 major decision over Appalachian State's Carter Downs on Sunday. The win clinched the Mocs' 27-10 victory in Boone.
Wright has won his last three matches and is currently 7-10 overall and 3-4 at 174 this season. He is 3-0 in SoCon matches.* Wright's honor is the first for the Mocs this season.*
