Three Blugolds Earn WIAC Honors
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
MADISON, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - Three UW-Eau Claire student-athletes have earned Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) athlete of the week honors, conference sports information director Matt Stanek announced today.
Selected this week were women's basketball player Hannah Mesick (Jr.-Chatfield, Minn.), men's hockey player Jordan Singer (Fr.-Lino Lakes, Minn./Centennial) and wrestler Andy Johnston (Sr.-St. Cloud, Minn./Tech).
Mesick helped UW-Eau Claire secure two conference wins during the week to improve to 5-2 in WIAC contests. On Jan. 16, the Blugolds defeat No. 15-ranked UW-Whitewater 57-53, while picking up a 57-33 victory over UW-Superior on Jan. 13. Against the Warhawks, she secured a double-double with a game-high 24 points, while also pulling down 10 rebounds. Against the Yellowjackets, she scored a career-high 28 points on 11-for-15 shooting from the floor and 6-for-8 from the free throw line. She also grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.
Singer played a key role in the Blugolds' 5-1 victory over No. 3-ranked St. Norbert College on Jan. 16. He picked up a goal in the first period, the eventual game-winner, while also recording two assists in the game to help UW-Eau Claire defeat the Green Knights for the first time since 1995. He also scored a goal on Jan. 15, in the Blugolds' 3-2 loss to the Green Knights.
Johnston had a good week, winning matches at two dual meets, while taking second at the UW-Oshkosh Don Gable Open on Jan. 17. He recorded a pair of wins against NCAA Division II opponents from University of Minnesota-Mankato and St. Cloud State University (Minn.). Both the Mavericks and Huskies are ranked nationally. At the Don Gable Open, Johnston registered a pin and a decision before falling to UW-Madison's Shawn Perry 4-3 in the championship match.
