WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – With a win over a top-10 ranked wrestler in his first tournament at Lycoming College, junior Garrett Wesneski (Canton, Pa./Canton Area) has earned his first career Middle Atlantic Conference Wrestler of the Week award, the conference office in Annville, Pa., announced on Monday, Nov. 6.

By winning his weight class at the Messiah College Invitational, Wesneski provided the upset of the tournament in his first tournament at heavyweight. The University of Maryland transfer posted a 6-4 win over sixth-ranked and 2016 All-American Paul Triandafilou in the finals. To get to the finals, Wesneski ran the circuit, starting with a pin of UMBC's Ryan Nguyen in 2:17 before a 16-0 technical fall win over Messiah's Dan Kiser. He added a major decision, 9-0 win over Anthony Puca in the semifinals to set up his match with Triandafilou.

He is the first MAC Wrestler of the Week since fellow heavyweight Skylar Ebner ’17 earned the award on Feb. 13.

The Warriors get back on the mat on Saturday, Nov. 11, when they head to the Washington & Jefferson Invitational, slated to start at 9:45 a.m.
