KANSAS CITY – Briar Cliff’s Chris Paulsen has been named the GPAC and NAIA Wrestler of the Week.
Paulsen is ranked No. 7 in the NAIA at 165-pounds and defeated No. 2 Andrew Null of Northwestern 9-2 in a dual last week. He also placed fourth at the Buena Vista University Open with three pins at the event and has not lost a match to an NAIA wrestler this season.
“Chris has had a great semester with some big wins,” coach Joe Privitere said. “Chris does everything right and is a testament to what you can earn by working hard and being coachable.”
Paulsen and the rest of the Charger wrestlers are done competing for the calendar year and get back to action at the Central College Under Armour Invite on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019.
“I look forward to seeing what next semester brings him,” Privitere said. “He’s going to give a lot of people problems.”
