Jon Sioredas (Chesapeake, Va./Tennessee-Chattanooga) has been named Wrestler of the Week for the week of November 9-15. Sioredas won two crucial matches at 165 lbs. on Sunday against wrestlers from Boise State and Oklahoma State, helping Tennessee-Chattanooga to post a 1-1 dual record on the weekend. In a 28-17 win over defending PAC-10 champion Boise State on Sunday, Sioredas pinned Russell Brunson in the second period. The pin gave the Mocs a 21-8 lead with only four matches remaining in the dual meet. Against two-time defending NCAA champion Oklahoma State, the Mocs were downed 37-6, but Sioredas posted a 5-3 victory over 2004 All-American Johny Hendricks. Sioredas will lead his team into action again this weekend at the Missouri Open in Columbia, Mo. on Sunday. Click here to view previous Athletes of the Week
