Sophomore wrestler Mason Smith has been named the Mid-American Conference Wrestler of the Week.

Smith finished first in the 2017 Ken Kraft Midlands Championships last weekend. He went 6-0 as the tournament's top seed at 141 pounds. 

The Clio native earned wins over two wrestlers ranked higher than him in the semifinals and finals, defeating No. 16 Tyler Smith of Bucknell and No. 13 Cole Weaver of Indiana. 

Smith still sits at No. 20 at 141 pounds, and is currently on a 12-match winning streak, improving his overall record to 24-3 this season.

Smith and the rest of the Central Michigan wrestling team will return to action on Sunday, Jan. 7 in Mcguire Arena to face Ohio at 2 p.m.
