Former Hermiston wrestling star Sam Colbray and current Iowa State Cyclone earned the Big 12 Conference’s Co-Wrestler of the Week for his standout performance over the weekend.
Colbray, a redshirt freshman wrestling in the 197-pound class, earned two dual victories for the Cyclones. His second win was the most impressive, as he upset South Dakota State’s Nate Rotert — ranked No. 11 in the country — with a win by fall in 5:22. He also scored a 5-3 decision over North Dakota State’s Cordell Eaton to help Iowa State secure a 21-20 team victory in the dual.
On the season, Colbray holds a 13-10 record with two major decisions and one pin. Colbray and Iowa State will be back in action this weekend with duals against Fresno State and Northern Iowa.
