Apprentice School freshman Michael Holcomb was named on Tuesday as the United States Collegiate Athletic association Wrestler of the Week for the week ending January 24.
Holcomb, an electrician apprentice from Virginia Beach, Va., went 6-0 with three wins by fall as the Apprentice School finished second in the National Collegiate Wrestling Association National Duals held in Dalton, Ga. In the semifinals, Holcomb recorded an 8-6 decision win over Eric Feuerbacher of Middle Tennessee State University who was the top-ranked 133-pound wrestler in the NCWA entering the event. For the year, Holcomb is 22-3.
The wrestlers are now in action on Sunday at 9 am as they host the Builder Duals at the Apprentice Athletic Facility. Competing teams are scheduled to be Penn State Mont Alto, James Madison University, Longwood University and East Carolina University.
