Buena Vista junior wrestler Aaron Cook (Waconia, Minn./Waconia) was recognized for his strong performance this past Saturday by being named the Iowa Conference Wrestler of the Week for the period ending December 14.
Cook turned in his strongest outing of the season by winning the 157-pound weight class during the Jim Fox Open, hosted by the University of Dubuque.
He ran his season record to 9-5 with a 3-0 record on the day, which concluded with a 14-5 major decision in the championship match over Upper Iowa's Travis Eggers.
At the time, Eggers was the top-ranked 157-pounder in Division II.
Buena Vistas's lone returning All-American made his way into the championship bout by recording 9-0 and 12-6 victories, respectively.
Cook and the rest of the Beavers are now off until after the New Year when the team will take part in the Cornell College Invite in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, on January 3 and 4.
Wrestling on the 3rd is scheduled to begin at 4:00pm.
