Mario Gonzalez (Aurora, Ill./University of Illinois) has been named Wrestler of the Week for Feb. 7-13.

Gonzalez bumped up a weight class and delivered a big win at heavyweight to push second-seeded Illinois past top-seeded Cornell 19-16 at the NWCA/Cliff Keen Division I National Duals regional on Sunday in Ithaca, N.Y.

Gonzalez, a sophomore who is ranked No. 13 at 197 pounds, moved up to take on Cornell heavyweight Maciej Jochym. The undersized, but quicker Gonzalez led wire-to-wire, earning an 8-2 victory that gave his team the regional championship.
