Lebe Gets School Award

WVU senior wrestler Matt Lebe earned athlete of the week honors after collecting his 100th career win last week.

Lebr defeated Penn's Gene Zannetti in the consolation semifinals of the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational for the milestone win. His performance helped WVU to a seventh place finish out of 52 teams. He is just the ninth wrestler in WVU's history to reach the century mark in career wins.

Lebe is now 14-1 overall this year, with his only setback coming to Alex Tirapelli, who is rated number one in the nation.

At 157 pounds, the Jeannette, Pa., native will be a serious contender for All-America and even national championship honors.
