Oskaloosa–Outside of an injury that forced him from not competing for the individual title, Scottie Bonds (Jr., Chicago, Ill., Physical Education) could not have gotten off to a better start this year and his efforts were rewarded as he was named Heart of America Athletic Conference Wrestler of the Week Monday.
Bonds won his first four matches with ease, but had to injury default in the 149-pound finals at the Grand View Open.
The junior pinned his first three opponents and then won the fourth match of the day by major decision.
Because the MCC did not sponsor wrestling during his freshman and sophomore campaigns, Bonds’ weekly award is the first of his career.
