Nick Fiegener was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Wrestler of the Week on Tuesday afternoon after he went 3-0 at Embry-Riddle last week.

Fiegener, a 184-pounder, improved to 5-0 this season in a dual at Embry-Riddle and the Mile High Open last week. It is the sixth RMAC Wrestler of the Week award the Lancers have earned over the past four years, and the first for Fiegner, a sophomore transfer from Cal Poly.

On Friday, Fiegener logged a 15-0 technical fall in a 31-10 dual win over the Eagles on Friday and then pinned both of his opponents in 1:01 or less in the Mile High Open on Saturday. All five of his wins have been bonus-point victories this year, with two of them coming against NCAA Division I competition from Bakersfield and Cal Poly.

CBU and Fiegener will look to build on these successes at the prestigious Cliff Keen Invitational. The Lancers will face some of the best teams for Division I at the event.
