Wilson is Wrestler of the Week

MOUNT OLIVE – After a pair of victories at the UNC-Pembroke Tri-Meet, redshirt freshman Dallas Wilson was chosen as the South Atlantic Conference Carolinas Wrestler of the Week, as announced by the league office on Feb. 8.

A native of Stedman, Wilson registered a 2-0 mark in the 149-weight class at the UNC Pembroke Tri-Meet while securing a nationally-ranked win. He posted a victory via fall over Isaiah Dotson of Emory & Henry in the first period and delivered a masterful performance versus No. 11 individually ranked Jake Piccirilli by producing a win by a 4-0 decision.

He improved to 22-3 on the season after collecting a win in the Newberry dual meet. He is currently in the midst of a seven-match winning streak. Wilson garners the weekly honor for the first time in his career after receiving Freshman of the Month for men’s wrestling back in December.
