University Books & More is pleased to announce that Mark Choinski (So. • West Allis) of the wrestling team has been chosen as the UW-Oshkosh Male Student-Athlete of the Week for the period of Feb. 6-12.

Choinski became just the third UW-Oshkosh champion since 1999 when he won the 157-pound weight class at the WIAC Wrestling Championship (presented by Culver's) held Feb. 10 in Platteville.

Choinski (19-2) went unbeaten in four contests and captured the victory in his division with a 13-4 win over UW-La Crosse's Jackson Schoen. Choinski advanced to his championship bout with Schoen by defeating UW-La Crosse's Michael Murnane, 5-3.

Choinski began his road to the title by ousting UW-Whitewater's Scott Schieldt, 8-1, and receiving a medical forfeit from UW-Platteville's Dustin Reynolds.

Choinski joins Joel Dziedzic (2001 champion at 149 pounds) and Nazar Kulchytskyy (2012 champion at 157 pounds) as UW-Oshkosh's only WIAC champions in the last 18 years.

UW-La Crosse scored 160 points to win its first WIAC title since 2011 and 16th overall. Five-time defending WIAC UW-Whitewater finished second in the six-team meet with 108 points while UW-Platteville and UW-Stevens Point shared third place with 97.5. UW-Eau Claire took fifth place with 89 points.

Each week throughout the 2016-17 school year, one male and one female UW-Oshkosh student-athlete are recognized for their accomplishments from the previous week. The award winners will be announced on the UW-Oshkosh athletics website every Monday afternoon.
