UNI's Bonin wins conference wrestling award

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

University of Northern Iowa 157-pound redshirt junior David Bonin (Broussard, La./Comeaux HS) and University of Wyoming 184-pound senior Joe LeBlanc (Meeker, Colo./Meeker HS) have been named Co-Western Wrestling Conference Wrestlers of the Week.

Both had outstanding performances on the mat last weekend. The final 2011-12 weekly award was released Tuesday by the league.   

Bonin continued his recent streak of impressive wins last weekend with arguably his biggest victory of the season as he upset No. 6 James Green of Nebraska with a 4-3 decision. 

The UNI junior had a 3-1 lead going into the final 30 seconds of the match but a one-point penalty paired with a Green escape notched the score. Riding time ended up being Bonin's friend in the end, however, as it offset the match's 3-3 tie at the end of the third period.  

The win was Bonin's 11th-straight dual victory and his second over a ranked opponent during the span. Bonin broke into the InterMat rankings for the first time of the season last week and he is currently rated No. 16 at 157 pounds.
