Bulldog Wrestling Concludes Season with Awards Picnic and Banquet

Charleston, S.C. – The Citadel wrestling team closed out its historic 2012-13 campaign last weekend with its annual year-end awards picnic, honoring several team members for their achievements on the mat and in the classroom.

Graduating seniors Odie Delaney, Jordan Dix, Josh Tuck and Mike Harper were recognized for their dedication to the team, while redshirt freshman Ugi Khishignyam was named as the team's MVP for his performance throughout the season and at the NCAA Championship.

Matt Frisch took home the "Workhorse Award" and the Most Outstanding Freshman.

Delaney, Khishignyam and Frisch all won their respective weight division titles at the 2013 Southern Conference Championships to earn a bid to the NCAA Championships where Khishignyam and Delaney became The Citadel's second and third All-Americans.
