Men’s Student-Athlete of the Week
Nick Day - Wrestling - Senior - Northampton, MA
Nick Day of the wrestling team has been selected as the WPI Male Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sunday, January 6th. Needing a pin at heavyweight to defeat Chicago, the Engineers nearly struck for the improbable victory when Day put his opponent immediately on his back in TB 3 but his opponent was able to just barely wiggle out and avoid the fall. Day took home a 9-6 decision but it was Maroons that took the match 23-21. He later notched a 15-0 tech fall to secure the 31-21 comeback win versus Westminster (MO).
