Lance Palmer (Lakewood, Ohio/Ohio State University) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for March 2-8.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level.

Palmer knocked off two-time Big Ten champion and 2008 NCAA champion Brent Metcalf of Iowa 9-3 in the 149-pound finals at the Big Ten Championships on March 7 in Ann Arbor, Mich.

The second-seeded Palmer defeated No. 2 seed Kyle Ruschell of Wisconsin 2-1 in the semifinals. Ruschell beat Palmer in the third-place match at the 2009 NCAA tournament.

Palmer, a three-time All-American, had been 0-4 against Metcalf entering that match.
