WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – After becoming the first Lycoming College wrestler to repeat as Middle Atlantic Conference champion since 2006, sophomore 157-pounder Hadyn Swartwood (Jersey Shore, Pa./Jersey Shore Area) has earned his first MAC Wrestler of the Week award, the conference office in Annville, Pa., announced on Monday, Jan. 22.

Swartwood cruised while becoming the first Warrior to repeat as MAC champ since Tommy Snyder won three straight titles at heavyweight from 2004-06. The Jersey Shore native opened the tournament with a 16-0 technical fall over Wilkes' Michael Brown before posting a 6-0 decision over Messiah's Dan Swarr in the semifinals. He capped the event with a first-period pin of Messiah's Kevin Edwards in the finals, improving to 18-6 on the season.

Swartwood is listed as honorable mention in the latest individual rankings. He is the fourth different Warrior to earn the MAC’s weekly plaudits this season, joining junior heavyweight Garrett Wesneski(Canton, Pa./Canton Area) (Nov. 6), junior 149-pounder Trevor Corl (Howard, Pa./Bellefonte Area) (Dec. 4) and senior 174-pounder Brandon Conrad (Bloomsburg, Pa./Bloomsburg Area) (Dec. 26).

The Warriors get back on the mat on Saturday, Jan. 27, when they head back to King's (Pa.) for a 2 p.m. dual meet.
