Iowa's Lee Big Ten Freshman of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Iowa freshman Spencer Lee has been named Big Ten Conference Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.

Lee, ranked No. 3 in the country at 125 pounds, upset top-rated Nathan Tomasello, 3-2, last week at Ohio State.

Lee is 9-1 overall, 3-0 since removing his redshirt, and has three wins over top-10 opponents.

The Big Ten Conference weekly honor is the first of Lee’s career and the third for Iowa this season. Michael Kemerer won the award Nov. 28, and Alex Marinelli won the award on Dec. 12.

The fourth-ranked Hawkeyes return to the mat Saturday at 5 p.m. (CT), hosting No. 7 Michigan at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
