Senior Ray Blake (Chicago, IL/Marist) of the Stanford Wrestling Team was selected as the Stanford/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 17-Jan. 23.
Senior co-captain Ray Blake scored four takedowns and a three-point near fall Monday night en route to his 32nd win of the season versus the sixth-ranked wrestler in the Pac-10 from Cal State Fullerton. Last Friday, fifth-ranked Blake defeated the fourth-ranked wrestler in the conference to lead Stanford to victory over Cal State Bakersfield, the first time the Cardinal has beaten the Roadrunners since the 2001-2002 season and only the third time ever. Stanford now shares the top spot in the conference with Arizona State.
This is Blake's first Stanford/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor. The Cardinal Wrestling Team will be back in action at UC Davis on Friday, January 27 (7:00 pm).
