UNI's Moza Fay Named WWC Wrestler of the Week

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - University of Northern Iowa senior 165-pounder Moza Fay (Anamosa, Iowa/Anamosa HS) has been named the Western Wrestling Conference's Wrestler of the Week as announced by league officials.

Fay posted a mark of 10-1 from Dec. 20-Jan. 3, which included a third-place finish at the prestigious Midlands Championships. Fay avenged his only loss this season, a quarterfinal tilt earlier in the tournament, to Wisconsin's No. 8-seeded Andrew Howe with a 9-3 triumph in the third-place match at Midlands. After dropping the match to Howe on Monday, Fay mowed down the competition Tuesday with four straight victories. Fay began the day with a 6-2 win over No. 6-seeded Trevor Stewart (Central Michigan). Fay took down another seed in No. 5 Luke Manuel (Purdue) with a 12-7 triumph. Fay then locked up with No. 2-seeded Nick Marable (Missouri) in the consolation semifinals and scored a 4-2 win over Marable. In the third-place match, Fay jumped out to a 4-0 lead. Howe responded with a third-period takedown to trim Fay's lead to 5-3, but Fay added an escape, a takedown and a riding time point to tally the 9-3 win.

He added a trio of dual wins including a 17-1 technical fall over George Mason's Aaron Keeton, a fall at 1:48 over Buffalo's Ron Majerus and a fall at 4:52 over Cleveland State's Rob Michaels. Fay is 16-1 on the season and ranked No. 2 in the nation at 165 pounds.

The Western Wrestling Conference is comprised of seven schools including the Air Force Academy, North Dakota State, Northern Colorado, Northern Iowa, South Dakota State, Utah Valley and Wyoming.
