Brandon Sorensen named Big Ten wrestler of the week for second time this season

For the second time this season (and this month) Brandon Sorensen has been named the Big Ten wrestler of the week. The Hawkeye freshman recorded a 3-2 TB-2 win over defending NCAA champion Jason Tsirtsis to earn the award.

Previously, Sorensen won the honor for defeating then #5 ranked Hunter Stieber. Since that win, Sorensen has now gone on to upset returning NCAA runner-up Josh Kindig of Oklahoma State and last Friday he snapped a 40 match winning streak for Tsirtsis.

The win has propeled Sorensen to #2 in Intermat’s rankings and #1 in Flowrestling rankings. Sorensen was the last Hawkeye to win the award, with Bobby Telford also earning the award back on December 31st.
