Illini wrestler honored
Illinois 125-pounder Jesse Delgado has been named the Big Ten Wrestler of the Week after his performance at the NWCA National Duals.
The freshman from California scored a pair of wins against Top 10-ranked opponents, helping the Illini to the Cornell Regional title and a spot in the tournament semifinals.
Delgado is the third Illini honored this season, following B.J. Futrell (Nov. 15) and Eric Terrazas (Jan. 10).
