PELLA — Opening the Central College wrestling season with a tournament title at the Pointer Open Saturday, Duncan Lee (senior, 285 pounds, Newton) was named the American Rivers Conference wrestler of the week.

Lee went 4-0 in his first competition at 285 pounds in his career. He won his first two matches by fall in the first period. He defeated Jordan Lemcke of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh 4-1 in the championship bout.

Last year at 197 pounds, Lee went 21-12 with nine pins. He piled up a quartet of top-three finishes at tournaments last season, including a title at the Central Last Chance Invitational.

The season continues Saturday at the Millikin Open in Decatur, Illinois.
