MAC names Ashton Eyer Co-Wrestler of the Week

Ashton Eyler of the Lock Haven University men’s wrestling team has been named Co-Wrestler of the Week by the Mid-American Conference after his 165-pound title at Friday’s David Lehman F&M Open.

Going 6-0 on the day, Eyler blazed his way to the final at 165 on the back of a fall and two major decisions. In the final against Iowa State’s Austin Kraisser, Eyler fell behind 2-0 on an early takedown, but managed an escape late in the period to cut the lead to 2-1.

Early in the second period, the junior scored a smooth reversal and was able to ride out Kraisser to take a narrow 3-2 lead into the final period. Eyler made his mark in the final period securing two more takedowns and adding a riding time point to bring home the first-place finish, 8-3.

Behind Eyler’s title, the Bald Eagles finished with 60 total team points in fifth place out of 29.
