CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia redshirt senior Nick Sulzer (Cleveland, Ohio) has been named the initial ACC Wrestler of the Week, as announced by the league Tuesday. Sulzer shares the award with NC State heavyweight Nick Gwiazdowski and Pitt 184-pounder Max Thomusseit.
Ranked No. 2 nationally at 165 pounds by Intermat, Sulzer is off to a 10-0 start this season, including a championship at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational on Dec. 6.
