Jamison Sacco named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for July 5-11



Jamison Sacco (Syracuse, N.Y./Western New England) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for July 5-11.

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.

Sacco was one of three athletes who claimed U.S. Beach Nationals titles on Saturday and added International Beach Cup gold medals on Sunday at Ontario Beach Park in Rochester, N.Y.

All of the athletes who competed in Saturday’s national tournament were eligible to enter the International Cup, but competition was held in the four new international weight classes for Beach Wrestling.

Sacco swept titles in the Over 90 kg/198 lbs. division.

Sacco won all three of his matches in a four-man round robin, including two matches by pin. Sacco was a 2010 NCAA Division III qualifier from Western New England University.

Sacco, the heavyweight champion, defeated the 98 kg/198 lbs. champion Oleksander Ievitushenko by a 2-0 margin. It was a competitive battle marked by strong pummeling skills by both athletes, but Sacco used his size and Beach wrestling experience to score a pair of takedowns.

Note: To nominate a wrestler for TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week, send the athlete's name, accomplishments for the week and career accomplishments to Craig Sesker at csesker@usawrestling.org
