Junior Ryan Renon garnered Muskie of the Week honors for the fourth time this season after once again showcasing his dominance on the wrestling mat.

The Wrightstown, Wis., native has tallied a 21-4 mark this season, including a 75-25 career record, which ranks eighth all time at Lakeland. Renon holds the career record for most near fall points (310) and he holds the single season record for near fall points (133) set in 2010.
