Missouri wrestler named MAC Wrestler of the Week
COLUMBIA - For the second time in the 2014-15 season, Missouri wrestling's Alan Waters has been named MAC Wrestler of the Week.
Waters, a senior from Kansas City, went 3-0 this past weekend at the 2015 National Duels Finals at the University of Iowa and moved to the No.1 ranking in the 125 lb. weight class.
He defeated then-No. 1 wrestler in the country, Jesse Delgado of the University of Illinois, in the first round of the duels. In the next round, Waters won a match against Scott Parker of Lehigh as the Tigers advanced to the final round against then-No.1 Iowa. Waters knocked off No. 6 Thomas Gilman in the final to cap his unbeaten weekend.
Waters and the newly No.1-ranked Missouri Tigers will host the MAC Wrestling Championships at Hearnes Center beginning Saturday, March 7.
