OCU's Hutchison named TheMat wrestler of the week
OKLAHOMA CITY – Michaela Hutchison of Oklahoma City University has been named TheMat wrestler of the week for Sept. 30-Oct. 6.
Hutchison, a freshman from Soldotna, Alaska, won a pair of matches to lead the Stars to a pair of women’s dual-meet wins on Oct. 4 in Oklahoma City. The Stars beat the U.S. Olympic Education Center 30-13 and Lindenwood (Mo.) 44-2.
Hutchison beat USOEC wrestler Amy Whitbeck 6-0, 5-0 at 55 kilograms and won by fall over Lindenwood’s Priscilla Caldera.
Hutchison placed ninth in the 2008 Junior World Championships. Whitbeck finished third recently in the World Team Trials in Colorado Springs, Colo. <o></o>
“Michaela Hutchinson put on an outstanding performance,” OCU coach Archie Randall said. “We are expecting great things in the future from her.”
Each week, TheMat will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the senior level.
