SEWARD, Neb. – Riding a 12-match winning streak, junior Andrew Schulte has been named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Wrestler of the Week for the second-straight time. The 2015 All-American has not lost since the Battle of the Rockies Open on Dec. 5. He owns a record of 46-10 as a Bulldog.

Performing under the spotlight of the prestigious National Duals (Jan. 8-9), the 141-pound Schulte went a perfect 5-0 while twice defeating Lindsey Wilson College’s (Ky.) sixth-ranked Daniel Leonard. He also dismantled fifth-ranked Tyler Hinton of Ottawa University (Kan.) by major decision. Three of Schulte’s five wins at the National Duals came by either major decision or technical fall. The Corona, Calif., native’s dominant effort fueled a seventh-place finish at the National Duals, marking the first-ever placement at the event in program history.

Schulte placed fifth in the 141-pound bracket at the 2015 NAIA National Championships. Since a loss in Concordia’s dual victory over York College on Nov. 10, Schulte has won 10-straight matches in dual meets. Ranked eighth nationally in his weight class, Schulte is 26-6 overall this season.

Schulte and the Bulldogs return to action Friday and Saturday at the Missouri Valley Invite, which will take place in Marshall, Mo.
