Soto Named SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sophomore wrestler Nick Soto has been named the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for December 19, the league office announced today.

Soto, a native of Spring Hill, Fla., with a 3.68 g.p.a. as a Business major, went 3-0 in dual matches over the weekend.  He opened Friday's dual at Princeton with a 9-3 decision over Max Rogers.  That put the Mocs on track for a 27-10 win over the Ivy League Tigers.

UTC traveled to Madison Square Garden for the Grapple in the Garden, presented by Suplay.com, on Sunday.  There Soto put UTC up 6-0 against No. 2 Oklahoma State with a pin over Cowboy's starter Edward Klimara at the 6:29 mark.  The Mocs eventually lost the match 41-9. 

In the second match of the event, Soto defeated Rutgers' Joe Landel 10-4.  UTC went on to drop that match 28-12.  Soto is 13-3 overall and 6-2 in dual matches.  He is ranked as high as No. 9 in the nation this week and has a 38-11 career record. 

 Chattanooga leads the league with three SoCon Student-Athletes of the Week in the 2012-13 academic year.  Soto joins cross country's Nathan Wanuch (Sept. 12) and women's basketball's Kayla Christopher (Nov. 28) as Mocs who have been honored.  All honorees have at least a 3.3 g.p.a. and along with exemplary performances in their arenas of competition.
