This week’s choice, with the best overall record and a hand in three conference championships, was clear:

The Wildcats only lost three conference matches over this entire period, already avenging the last one with a playoff win versus Montana in the 2019 national quarter-finals. Weber State then went on to lose respectably to James Madison who would then almost take the national title in a nail-biting final round.

Congratulations to the Wildcats’ coaches, staff, administrators, all players, and especially the 38 young men present on the roster all three years to earn this title!
