UTC's Maldonado named Southern Conference Wrestler of the Month



CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Javier Maldonado of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga was named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Month for November, the SoCon office announced this week.

Maldonado, a junior from Kissimmee, Fla., forged an 8-1 record in November, and all but one of his victories was for extra points. He recorded three pins, three major decisions and a technical fall.

Wrestling at 125 pounds, Maldonado placed second at the Missouri Open Nov. 19 with a 4-1 mark. In that tournament, he notched three consecutive pins, including one over Oklahoma's J.R. Roman.

In the opening dual of the season on Nov. 11, Maldonado scored a tech fall over Davidson's Ben Altman as the Mocs won the SoCon opener. In a win over Virginia Tech, Maldonado earned a major decision.

He ended the month with a major decision against Anderson University and Cumberland University and led the team to a 4-0 record in dual matches.

Maldonado was the 2006 SoCon Champion at 125 pounds and an NCAA Qualifier.
