CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Redshirt senior George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Ohio) has been named the ACC Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday (Feb. 7) with the release of its weekly award winners.
DiCamillo helped the No. 23 Cavaliers to a pair of dual match victories on the road last weekend as Virginia defeated No. 25 North Carolina 22-15 on Saturday night and then defeated Duke 23-14 on Sunday afternoon.
On Saturday night against the Tar Heels, DiCamillo, ranked No. 7 nationally at 141 pounds, pinned fifth-ranked Joey Ward to help the Cavaliers to victory. It was the first time Ward had been pinned by an opponent since the 2012-13 season.
DiCamillo then followed that up with a major decision over Zach Finesilver of Duke in Sunday’s match. His bonus point victories in both matches were crucial to helping Virginia pick up both wins on the weekend.
Virginia will return to action this weekend, hosting Pittsburgh at 1 p.m. Sunday (Feb. 12) at Memorial Gym. It will be Senior Day for the Cavaliers with eight wrestlers being honored for their contribution to the program. Admission to all wrestling matches is free of charge.
