Sophomore transfer Devon Pingel has earned the first two Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association student-athlete of the week awards in Bulldogs men's wrestling history. He won his second citation on Jan. 21 after becoming the first AC wrestler to win MIAA weekly recognition before the winter holiday break.
At 184 pounds, Pingel leads the Bulldogs with a 21-3 record and nine pins. Some of his highlights include a 5-0 record and championship at the North Central College Invitational in December and a 2-0 week against a ranked Trine University opponent and another win over Case Western Reserve.
Pingel, who competed at NCAA Division I Cleveland State his freshman year, is a criminal justice--law enforcement major at Adrian.
