The d3wrestle.com Wrestler of the Week is Jared Kust of Stevens Point. Stevens Point wrestled at 141 in two WIAC duals last week, defeating Platteville but losing to Whitewater. Kust, however, was the only Pointer to pick up wins in both matches. Against Platteville, he won via an 18-2 tech fall, and against Whitewater, he notched a 5-3 decision over Matt Adcock, the returning NCAA runner up at 141 lbs. Kust is now 14-5 on the year.
A junior from Shawano, Wisconsin, Kust transferred into Stevens Point for the 2013-2014 season from St. Cloud State University. He was 14-12 as a redshirt, then posted a 9-4 record in his final season at SCSU. He compiled a 20-11 record last season at Stevens Point. He now has an attached career record of 43-20 and placed 5 at this year’s Concordia University Wisconsin Open. Stevens Point is now off until they make the long trip to Pennsylvania for the Budd Whitehill Duals at Lycoming on January 9th and 10th.
