KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For the second week in a row Fort Hays State's Tereus Henry has been named the MIAA Wrestler of the Week, announced Tuesday by the league office. The El Paso, Texas native shared this week's award with Conner Johnston of Central Missouri.
Henry, the 11th-ranked wrestler in Division II at 197 pounds, picked up his fourth-career open tournament championship on Saturday after winning the elite 197-pound bracket at the 2022 Younes Hospitality Open in Kearney, Neb. He recorded four victories on the day, including two wins over nationally ranked opponents while all four triumphs came against DII opponents. Henry opened the tournament with a 10-6 decision in his first round before capturing a 12-4 major decision in the quarterfinals. He then defeated fourth-ranked Matt Kaylor of UMary 8-5 in the semifinals before defeating sixth-ranked Anderson Salisbury of Colorado School of Mines in sudden victory, 5-3, to secure the championship. The fourth-year sophomore is now 9-1 on the year with five bonus-point victories.
Henry and the rest of his Tiger teammates will return to competition on December 2 with a pair of duals against San Francisco State and Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colo.
