UTC's Matt Keller named Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestler Matt Keller was named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday.

The All-America from McDonald, Tenn., was responsible for a team-best 20 points at last Sunday's Chippewa Challenge at Central Michigan University. Wrestling at 133 pounds, Keller went undefeated in four dual matches and won by bonus points in each match.

The senior recorded a pin against Rob Tate of Gardner-Webb, won by technical falls over Eastern Illinois' Leonard Grodoski and Cal Poly's John Hanks and scored a major decision over Conor Beebe of Central Michigan.

His efforts led UTC to a 3-1 record in the four duals, and the Mocs set a school record with their 11th consecutive victory. Seventh-ranked Central Michigan put a halt to the streak in the final dual of the day with a 21-13 win.

Keller's individual national ranking improved to No. 7 in the NWCA/Intermat poll. He pushed his overall record to 21-2 and is 9-0 in dual matches.

The award is his second weekly honor by the SoCon this season, and it is the fourth for a UTC wrestler in 2006-07.

The Mocs return to SoCon competition this weekend, traveling to UNC Greensboro Saturday and Appalachian State Sunday.
