VonOhlen Named WWC Wrestler of the Week
Dec. 22, 2009
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Air Force freshman Cole VonOhlen (Jackson, Minn.) has been named the Western Wrestling Conference Wrestler of the Week, as announced today by league officials. This marks VonOhlen's first weekly honor in his career, and the first for an Air Force wrestler this season.
Last week, VonOhlen made the most of his return from injury, compiling a 2-0 record in a pair of duals for the Falcons. VonOhlen, who missed nearly a month of action, posted an 18-6 decision over Southern Oregon's Barry Johnson, who is currently ranked eighth in the NAIA at 141 pounds. He then added an 8-5 decision over Oregon State's Mike Mangrum to give Air Force its only individual win over the 25th-ranked Beavers.
VonOhlen now leads the Falcons in win percentage on the young season with a 9-3 overall record (.750) and a 2-0 dual record.
The Air Force wrestlers return to action next week, Dec. 29-30, as they compete at the annual Southern Scuffle in Greensboro, N.C.
