George Hickman Named PSAC Wrestler of the Week
BLOOMSBURG-- Bloomsburg University wrestler George Hickman (Castle Hayne, NC/Riverside) has been named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Wrestler of the Week for the period ending Feb. 15.
Hickman picked up a big win Friday by pulling off the upset on 22nd ranked Matt Fittery of Lock Haven. After falling behind 2-0 to Fittery after the first period, Hickman fought back and escaped to start the second. Then, late in the period Hickman put Fittery on his back, and with 14 seconds left in the period earned the win by fall. Hickman's win gave the Huskies a 12-3 lead at that point in which they did not look back, defeating the Bald Eagles 29-9. On the year Hickman is now 21-11 with four pins on the season.
Bloomsburg improves to 8-7 and 3-3 in the EWL. Hickman and the Huskies will look to continue their momentum as they host Rutgers on February 20th.
