Matticks Repeats as Ian's Pizza Raider of the Week

MILWAUKEE - Freshman Drew Matticks has been named the Ian's Pizza Raider of the Week for Dec. 11.

Matticks earns the award for the second-straight week after taking second place at the North Central Invitational. He won his first four matches of the day to work his way into the first-place match, falling on riding time, 5-4. He had battled to tie the score at 4-4 with an escape with just two seconds remaining before the deciding point. His day started with an 8-4 win, then a fall in 3:55. He edged his next opponent 7-5 and then shut out a foe 7-0 in the semifinals.

The runner-up finish comes after another second-place finish at the Dan Gable Open and a third-place showing at the MSOE Invitational last weekend. He won his final four matches at the home tournament to carry an eight-bout winning streak into the first-place contest Saturday. He improved to 11-3 on the season.

The Raiders host Concordia Wisconsin Friday in their first dual meet of the season.
