Boyd named Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week



SPARTANBURG, S.C. The Southern Conference announced today that Davidson's Marcus Boyd has been named the league's Wrestler of the Week for the week of Jan. 10.

Boyd, a senior from Durham, N.C., led the Wildcats to their first two dual victories of the season. First he earned a 5-3 decision in Davidson1s 33-6 loss to Buffalo and added a 7-5 win in the Wildcats' 33-12 loss to Clarion last Thursday. But then on Saturday, the 174-pounder helped Davidson earn its first two victories, most notably an 18-17 triumph over Duke. The Wildcats had not beaten the Blue Devils on the mats in 40 years. His slim 10-9 decision was just one of several tremendous efforts by Davidson grapplers that evening.

Boyd also scored a major decision in the Wildcats' 30-18 triumph over Princeton at Duke. For the week, he went 4-0 and improved to a team-best 17-7 overall and 4-1 in dual meets this season.

Davidson returns to the mats this Friday at the Virginia Duals in Hampton, Va. At 11 a.m., the third-seeded Wildcats will square off against sixth-seeded Apprentice.
