The Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) has announced that Luther senior Justin Kreiter has been named the wrestling Performer of the Week for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 27.
Kreiter, a 2016 All-American and ranked No. 1 in the NCAA III at 184, made his first appearance of the 2016-17 campaign during Luther's home dual with UW-Eau Claire. With the Norse trailing 17-6, Kreiter recorded a fall (6:34) over Travis Cripe of UW-Eau Claire that pulled the Norse to within five points of the Blugolds with two matches remaining. Unfortunately, the Norse came up a bit short and were defeated 15-20.
This was Kreiter's first competition of the year.
