LHU Wrestling: Alex Klucker named MAC East Wrestler of the Week

CLEVELAND – Alex Klucker (Summerdale, Pa./East Pennsboro) of the Lock Haven University wrestling team has been named this week’s Mid-American Conference (MAC) Eastern Division Wrestler of the Week.

Klucker was one of eight seniors honored before the match with No. 16 Cornell last Saturday (Feb. 22) night and he was one of the four Bald Eagle winners, as he earned an important major decision.

Ranked No. 31 at 157 in the latest NCAA Coaches’ Panel Rankings, Klucker majored Adam Santoro, 14-1 and had Lock Haven leading 10-7 at halftime. The senior brought the packed home crowd to its feet with an electrifying first period. He scored a quick takedown, racked up eight near fall points and led 10-1 after one period. A late third-period takedown helped Klucker secure the major decision, which was a highlight of the LHU loss in The Haven’s 2019-20 dual finale.
