Cleveland Named SoCon Wrestler of the Month

Chattanooga Mocs wrestler Cody Cleveland was named the Southern Conference’s Wrestler of the Month for January today.  The 141-pound junior went 7-0 last month, including three SoCon wins and a pair of pins.


Cleveland opened the month with a technical fall (7:00) against Oklahoma’s Zack Bailey on Jan. 11.  He followed that up with a pin (6:51) against Missouri Valley’s Eric Gordon on the Mocs’ trip to Columbia, Mo., on Jan. 18.  Later that evening, Cleveland won a major decision against Missouri’s No. 12 Marcus Hoehn 14-5. 


The Mocs continued SoCon action at Appalachian State and UNC Greensboro on Jan. 24 and Jan. 25.  Cleveland dropped ASU’s Mike Kessler in a major decision 19-8 and won a decision (13-6) over UNCG’s Chris Bencivenga. 


Cleveland ended the month with a technical fall (3:23) against The Citadel’s Derek Royster and a pin (3:31) against Matt David.  The win over David was the 50th of Cleveland’s career.


Cleveland is now 19-4 on the season and 4-0 in SoCon matches.  The Mocs travel to No. 2 Iowa State on Feb. 13 and No. 22 Northern Iowa on Feb. 14.  The final home match of the season is set for Monday, Feb. 23, at 6:00 p.m. in MacLellan Gym.  For tickets to Senior Night, call (423) 266-MOCS or click on the tickets link on
