PSU junior named New England Wrestler of the Week
Huber off to undefeated start for Panthers
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the top wrestlers on the Plymouth State University wrestling team was recognized Monday by the New England Wrestling Association (NEWA) with the selection of New England Wrestler of the Week.
Junior Josh Huber (Hampton, N.H./Winnacunnet) is this week’s recipient for the Panthers after his performance last weekend in the 21st Annual Doug Parker Invitational Tournament at Springfield College. He helped PSU finish in sixth place out of 18 schools at the tournament, including third among the 13 New England schools in the event.
A 125-pounder, Huber (right) went unbeaten in five bouts to win the championship in his weight class, and he was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler. He recorded one pin among his five wins, while defeating New England’s seventh-ranked wrester11-4 in a quarterfinal bout and winning the championship with a medical forfeit over SUNY Brockport sophomore Tyler Marlow, who is ranked sixth nationally at 125 pounds. Ranked No. 2 in New England, Huber is now 6-0 this season and 45-10 in his career.
The Panthers, who have moved up to fifth in the New England Division III poll, will compete in their home opener on Wednesday, Dec. 1, vs. Rhode Island College at Foley Gymnasium (7:00 p.m.)
