Lees Named UAA Wrestler of the Week

Case Western Reserve University senior wrestler Nick Lees was named the University Athletic Association Athlete of the Week, after helping lead the Spartans to a win over Muskingum University at the 2016 Si Ostrach Meet on Saturday.

Lees earned a win by technical fall, defeating Muskingum's Tevon Gary 22-2 in the 174-pound match.  His win helped spark a string of four-straight wins for the Spartans that allowed the squad to come-from-behind to defeat the Fighting Muskies by a final score of 25-16.

Lees, who was honored prior to the start of the match with a special 'Senior Day' ceremony, leads the Spartans in victories (10-9 overall record), pins (six) and technical falls (two) this season.  This was the second UAA Athlete of the Week award of his career.

The Spartans improved to 1-5 on the year with the victory over Muskingum.

The following Spartans have earned UAA Wrestler of the Week honors during the 2015-16 season:
