SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Citadel’s Aaron Walker has been named the Arby’s Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for all competition from Jan. 13-19. The selection is made by the league office.

Walker went 2-0 at 157 pounds last week, picking up bonus points in both of his bouts. The junior from San Antonio, Texas, picked up a 17-5 major decision over SoCon foe SIUE’s Eric Travers on Sunday in Edwardsville, Ill., and followed that up with a pin of Northern Illinois’ Andrew Scott in 3:29 in the neutral-site dual.

Walker moved to 17-5 on the season, including a perfect 9-0 dual record and a 2-0 SoCon mark. He has four pins on the year.

The Citadel (4-5, 1-1 SoCon) returns to the mat when it hosts Appalachian State (8-2, 3-0 SoCon) at 6 p.m. Wednesday for a league dual that can be seen live on the SoCon Digital Network.

Also nominated: Austin McNeill (Campbell), John Fahy (SIUE), Michael Pongracz (Chattanooga) and Dalton Henderson (VMI).
