The MyHOUSE Wrestler of the Week is Nick Koch of Whitewater. Koch won the 133 lbs. bracket at the Don Parker Open at Eau Claire this past weekend. It was the second year in a row that Koch won the tournament. This year, he defeated #6 ranked Gabe Foltz of Concordia-Moorhead and #10 ranked Sam Bennyhoff of Augsburg on his way to the championship. Koch is now 17-3 on the year.
Koch, a sophomore from Round Lake, Illinois, now has a career record of 26-10 in his second year with the Warhawks. He placed 3rd at the NUWAY Open and has not yet been defeated by a Division III opponent. The Warhawks head to Stevens Point for the WIAC Championships this Sunday. Each team can enter two wrestlers per weight, and Whitewater is seeking a fifth straight team championship.
