Uliano Give App State Wrestling Second SoCon Wrestler of the Week Award

App State’s Luke Uliano has been named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for all competition from Jan. 24-30. The selection was made by the league office.

Uliano went 4-0 at 174 pounds during the Appalachian Open on Jan. 27. The native of Powell, Ohio, began his day with a pin of The Citadel wrestler Ryan Duffelmeyer in the first period. Uliano won his next match via technical fall, 17-2, versus Savoy New of Davidson before getting a 17-4 majority decision victory over Virginia Tech’s Kolton Clark. In his final match of the day, the redshirt sophomore won a 10-4 decision against NC State wrestler Luke Ahrberg.

The Mountaineers had three wrestlers win titles at the Appalachian Open.

App State (4-2, 1-0 SoCon) travels to Campbell (7-3, 1-0) on Friday before hosting VMI (6-7, 0-2) on Sunday.
