MOUNT PLEASANT - Central Michigan senior 184-pounder Ben Bennett has been named the Mid-American Conference Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday.
Bennett closed his regular season with a 15-0 technical fall victory at the 6:25 mark over Michigan State's Eric Ford to help lead the Chippewas to their 12th straight victory over the Spartans. Ranked No. 2 in the country, Bennett finished the regular season a perfect 24-0, but more impressively has won each of his last four matches by technical fall and earned bonus points in 21 matches this season.
The No. 1 ranked 184-pounder in the MAC seems poised to win his fourth MAC title in two weeks when the Chippewas travel to Buffalo, N.Y., for the MAC Championships March 10.
