Apprentice School freshman Sterling Briscoe was named the Outstanding Wrestler in the American College Division late Saturday night at the conclusion of the 32nd annual Virginia Duals.
He becomes the third Apprentice School wrestler to win the Outstanding Wrestler award for the American College Division – behind current assistant coaches Cecil Lee (2009) and Micah Amrozowicz (2007).
Briscoe, a Va. Beach native and pipefitter apprentice, went 3-0 on the weekend with a win by fall against Nassau Community College's Jayson Kim in 1:45 for the lone Builder win in their opening match. He scored a 5-2 decision against Anderson University's Melchisedac LaVergne as the Builders won 30-12 in the consolation quarterfinals Friday.
On Saturday he won 6-3 over Liberty's Peter Crawford as the Builders fell 30-15 to the Flames for third place in the event.
For the year, Briscoe is 15-4 with eight wins by fall as the Builders are 12-5 in dual matches. They'll host the 32nd annual Apprentice School Invitational on Saturday at Woodside High School starting at 9 am.
