Graceland University junior 165-pound wrestler Drew Sams was named the Heart of America Athletic Conference (Heart) Wrester of the Week Monday, Feb. 3.
The former Oskaloosa High graduate earned the award after his 4-0 performance Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Sioux City Dave Edmonds Open. Sams, currently ranked #13 in the 165-pound weight class nationally, won his first match during the match by major decision and followed that up with a pin in the first period of his second match. After another win in his third match, he advanced to the next round matched up against a DI opponent from the University of Nebraska. Sams was successful in the match, winning by disqualification late, to solidify his undefeated record on the weekend.
Each week, award winners are nominated by members of the Heart and selected by a voting panel of member institution Sports Information Directors.To view these students click here: https://graceland.meritpages.com/achievements/Drew-Sams-Named-Wrestler-of-the-Week/118988
