Pokorny Named NSIC Wrestler of the Week

The victory gave the Huskies crucial extra points in a 28-6 dual win over #6 Upper Iowa, which helped SCSU clinch the conference crown with an 8-0 record (19-1 overall).

A two-time All-American, Pokorny is currently ranked #2 in the nation at 133-pounds and is 12-0 in 2013-14.
