UTC's Mock Is Named Wrestler Of The Month

Friday, December 6, 2013

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga junior Corey Mock is the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Month for November, the league office announced this week.  Mock, a transfer from North Carolina, went 10-0 to open his UTC career in November.

Competing at 165 pounds, Mock was a two-time SoCon Wrestler of the Week in November.  He was unbeaten in his first month of competition for the Mocs, going 10-0 with two pins and three wins over ranked opponents.

Mock took his first weekly honor in the first week of the season after posting a 5-0 mark with wins over No. 11 Joseph Booth (Hofstra), No. 16 Chris Moon (Virginia Tech) and No. 12 Ramon Santiago (Rider) at the Hokie Duals on Nov. 10.

Mock earned his first pin of the season against Shorter on Nov. 16, sticking Seth Broom in just 1:06. The Chapel Hill, N.C., native then completed his month with a 4-0 showing at the Navy Classic on Nov. 23, winning the title at 165 en route to his second weekly SoCon honor. He dominated at the tournament, earning a technical fall, a pin and a major decision to reach the final before topping Navy’s Peyton Walsh in the title bout, 3-2. Walsh was the first wrestler to score on him this season.

Mock is currently ranked No. 4 nationally at 165 in the Amateur Wrestling News Top-20.  He is No. 7 in the country in the Intermat rankings. 

The Mocs are back on the mat on Sunday, Dec. 15, taking on Purdue in Atlanta, Ga.  UTC’s next home dual is the Taziki’s Candlelight Dinner Match against Gardner-Webb on Monday, Dec. 16, at 7:00 p.m. in Maclellan Gym.  Space is still available for this unique event, so click here for the registration form or call the UTC Ticket Office at (423) 266-MOCS (6627) for more information.

Exempt Volunteer Fire Departments From Procurement Policies - And Response (2)
