Soto improved to 9-3 overall this seson with a big win over a top-10 opponent last weekend.

Soto, a true frosh from Spring Hill, Fla., posted an 8-2 decision against No. 4 B.J. Futrell, in UTC's 30-6 loss at No. 7 Illinois on Sunday. He was leading 3-2 after the first two periods and poured it on in the final frame for the 8-2 win.
