Mitcheff Named MAC Wrestler of the Week

Elyria graduate Stevie Mitcheff was named the Mid-American Conference Wrestler of the Week for Kent State, after his 125-pound championship on Dec. 11 at the Cleveland State Open.

Mitcheff went 5-0 in his 25-man bracket inside Cleveland State’s Woodling Gymnasium. He recorded a 17-0 technical fall in his opening bout over Michigan State’s Chris Lyon, before pinning Cleveland State’s B.J. Miller in the second period. Mitcheff then earned a convincing 6-0 shutout over Edinboro’s Korey Mines in the quarterfinals and topped Central Michigan’s Joe Roth 6-2 in the semifinals. In his final bout of the day, Mitcheff knocked off Indiana’s Zach Zimmer 8-6.

Now 13-4 on the year, Mitcheff has placed in all three of the tournaments he has competed in this season (Hokie Open, Body Bar, CSU Open).
