McAdoo named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week

BRISTOL, Tenn. - Malexis McAdoo of the King University women's wrestling team has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level.

McAdoo went undefeated to help lead the King University women's wrestling team to the championship at the Cliff Keen Oklahoma City Duals this past weekend.

McAdoo won by fall at 191 pounds in King's 35-9 win over defending WCWA national champion Simon Fraser University in the finals.

The fourth-ranked McAdoo won each of her seven bouts by fall or technical fall, including pins over wrestlers ranked No. 1 and No. 3.

For the weekend, King went 7-0 en route to the championship.

The Tornado are in action again on Saturday when they host their lone event of the season starting at 9:00 a.m. in the Student Center Complex.
