Miller and Buckwalter Earn Weekly MAC Honors

CLEVELAND – Two Kent State seniors were honored by the Mid-American Conference Wednesday. Ian Miller (Oak Harbor) was named MAC Wrestler of the Week, while Tyler Buckwalter (Mill Hall, Pa.) was tabbed MAC Male Scholar Athlete of the Week, following their performances at the Navy Classic.

Miller won a 157-pound title at Wesley Brown Field House in Annapolis, going 4-0 Saturday. He was one of only two champions at the tournament to win his final bout by major decision, a 13-4 victory over Brown's Justin Staudenmayer. Miller also had a major decision in his opening bout (15-5) over Princeton's Kevin Moylan.

In his quarterfinal bout, Miller recorded a second period pin against Wisconsin's TJ Ruschell. Miller's first place helped the Golden Flashes finish second of 10 teams at the Navy Classic.

Buckwalter finished third at the Navy Classic with a 5-1 record in a 165-pound bracket that featured the No. 2 wrestler in the nation. Buckwalter won his first three matches convincingly, before falling in the semifinals. In his consolation final bout, he scored a takedown in sudden victory against Campbell's Paul Duggan for a 7-5 win.

Joining Miller atop the victory stand on Saturday were classmates Mike DePalma (Jeannette, Pa.) and Mack McGuire (Upper St. Clair, Pa.). All three remained undefeated on the season.

The Golden Flashes will face their toughest test of the regular season Dec. 4-5 at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational.
