Reinke earns weekly honor; women's golf places fourth

Wisconsin senior Brady Reinke was named co-Big Ten wrestler of the Week Monday after a pair of wins over ranked opponents.

Last week, Reinke (184 pound class) topped then-sixth ranked Roger Kish of Minnesota 10-8 in the Badgers' dual meet win over the Gophers Friday. He then topped Northwestern's 17th ranked Mike Tamillow in a 7-3 decision Sunday, helping Wisconsin pull out a second consecutive 1-point match victory.

On the season, Reinke, who is now ranked No. 6 nationally by Intermat, is a perfect 13-0 in dual competition and 7-0 in the Big Ten. He has been ranked in the top-10 of the 184-pound weight class all season and is the first Wisconsin wrestler to get Big Ten Wrestler of the Week honors since Ralph DeNisco on Jan. 30, 2002.

Reinke shared the honor with Illinois' Pete Friedl.

Women's golf takes fourth
