UTC's Rogers named Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week



CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestler Lloyd Rogers was named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced this week.

Rogers earned a seventh-place finish in the 174-pound division at the Southern Scuffle at the end of December after entering the tournament seeded ninth. His meet record of 6-2 was the best of any UTC wrestler in the event.

The junior from Palm City, Fla., recorded a pin and two major decisions in defeating wrestlers from Cornell, Missouri, Stanford, Virginia Tech and VMI.

His tournament performance caught the attention of the national rankings services. Rogers earned his first national ranking of the regular season, breaking into the Top 20 at 174 pounds this week as the Wrestling International Newsmagazine listed him at No. 19.

Rogers is the third UTC wrestler to earn SoCon Wrestler of the Week accolades this season.

The Mocs, 5-0, travel to Cedar Falls, Iowa, Sunday to take on Oregon State and Northern Iowa.
