CLEVELAND, Ohio – Virginia senior George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Ohio) opened the season with a big victory, defeating No. 15 Brock Zacherl of Clarion at the National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic on Saturday (Nov. 5).
Ranked No. 10 at 141 pounds, DiCamillo wrestled Zacherl in an undercard match at the season-opening event. Trailing 3-1, DiCamillo used an escape and a late takedown to pick up the 4-3 victory.
DiCamillo is coming off a 29-5 record as a junior and claimed his third ACC Championship last season. He also qualified for the NCAA Championships for a third time in his career, becoming only the seventh Virginia wrestler to win three ACC titles. Zacherl claimed the Eastern Wrestling League (EWL) championship at 141 pounds a year ago, finishing the season with a 28-3 record. He also qualified for his first NCAA Championship appearance last season as a redshirt freshman.
It’s the first competition of the season for DiCamillo who is slated to compete on Sunday at the Clarion Open. Zacherl, who wrestles for Clarion, is also slated to compete at the tournament on Sunday.
