CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Nine Virginia Cavaliers were named to the 2013 Virginia Sports Information Directors All-State Wrestling Team. UVa freshman George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Ohio) earned the state's Rookie of the Year award following his strong freshman campaign.
DiCamillo closed out his freshman year in the 133-pound weight class with a 33-10 overall record for the Cavaliers, including four pins. He won the ACC championship this season, while leading UVa to a runner-up finish at the ACC Championship. He went on to reach the round of 12 at the NCAA Championships, falling one win shy of All-America status.
DiCamillo was joined on the first team by teammates Jon Fausey (R-Jr., Dalmatia, Pa.), Stephen Doty (R-Jr., St. Louis, Mo.) and Mike Salopek (R-Sr., North Huntingdon, Pa.), who earned the distinction at 174, 184 and 197 pounds, respectively.
Five Cavaliers were named to the second team: Matt Snyder (R-Sr., Lewistown, Pa.) at 125, Joe Spisak (R-So., Boiling Springs, Pa.) at 141, Derek Valenti (R-Sr., Newton, N.J.) at 149, Jedd Moore (R-Sr., Mount Vernon, Ohio) at 157 and Nick Sulzer (R-So., Cleveland, Ohio) at 165. Moore and Sulzer each earned All-America honors, while all nine Cavaliers on the VaSID All-State team competed at the NCAA Championships.
