Ryan Lewis Inducted in Utah Wrestling Hall of Fame
Two-time All-American and Minnesota alum Ryan Lewis will be inducted into the Utah Wrestling Hall of Fame tonight by the Utah Amateur Wrestling Foundation and Utah Valley University in Orem.

Lewis was a two-time NCAA runner-up at Minnesota, compiling an 83-15 record in his Gophers career.  The Vernal, Utah posted one of the best seasons in Minnesota history as a junior in 2001-02 when he held a .970 winning percentage at 32-1 and was a perfect 14-0 in duals and 8-0 in the Big Ten. That year, Lewis captured the Big Ten title and earned the 2002 Big Ten Wrestler of the Year award after he downed Ohio State's Jeff Ratliff, 5-2, in the final. Lewis would add the first of two-straight All-America honors to his list of accomplishments for the 2001-02 season.

Lewis, the 2000 University Nationals Freestyle Champion, ended his college career with a 102-17 record after transferring to Minnesota from North Dakota State after his freshman year.
