White Named GLIAC Wrestler of the Week

UF sophomore Joey White was tabbed the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Wrestler of the Week on Dec. 18.  White earned the award after finishing first in the 157-pound weight class at the prestigious Midwest Classic last weekend in Indianapolis, Ind. 

White claimed a sudden victory (4-2) over 8th-ranked Greg Hegarty of Marysville in the semifinals to reach the championship round. He then won 1-0 against Upper Iowa's Jordan Rinken in the finals to claim the title with a 5-0 record at the event.

The Dundee, Mich. native has an 18-6 record on the season for the Roughnecks. He is tied with teammate Josh Wimer for the team-lead in victories.
