SCSU’s Pokorny Named NSIC Wrestler of the Week

#1 St. Cloud State University redshirt junior Andy Pokorny (Bennington, Neb.) has been selected as the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Wrestler of the Week on Jan. 30.

At 133-pounds, Pokorny helped lift the No. 1 Huskies to a big dual match victory over #3 Augustana on Jan. 27 in St. Cloud, Minn. Pokorny posted a 9-6 decision victory over then undefeated and No. 2 ranked wrestler in the nation, Jason Jeremiason.

The victory helped spark the 26-9 win by the Huskies over the Vikings at Halenbeck Hall. A transfer from Nebraska and Nebraska-Omaha, Pokorny is 14-4 this season for the Huskies at 133-pounds. SCSU improved to 18-0 overall and 5-0 in the NSIC.

This marks the fifth time this winter that the Huskies have received NSIC Wrestler of the Week honors.

The Huskies will return to the mats on Feb. 2 with a 7 p.m. match in Halenbeck Hall against nearby rival St. John’s University. This match has been designated as Military Appreciation Day and all active members of the military and veterans will be admitted free to this match.

As a special salute to the military, the Huskies will be wearing camo singlets for the match. These singlets will then be auctioned off after the match with the proceeds being donated to a selected military charity.
