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.
