Wrestler of the Week: Zach Thomson

The d3wrestle.com/WWSport.com Wrestler of the Week for the past week is Zach Thomson of Gettysburg College. Thomson competed with the Bullets at the NYU quad, taking on NYU, Plymouth State, and Elizabethtown in the 165 lb. class. He picked up a tech fall against Plymouth State and 9-3 decision over Elizabethtown’s Quint Eno, but in the first match of the day, Thomson defeated #3 ranked and previously undefeated David Rice of NYU in a big conference matchup. The three wins on the day ran Thomson’s record to 24-1.

Thomson, a freshman from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, was a two time Pennsylvania AAA state qualifier and placed 3rd at 160 lbs. last year. This season, he has won titles at the King’s, Ursinus, and Oneonta tournaments while finishing as the runner-up at the Messiah Petrofes Invitational. He broke into the d3wrestle.com top ten for the first time this week and now sits at #4 at 165 lbs. Thomson and the Bullets will take on Ursinus and Muhlenberg in a home match this weekend before hosting McDaniel in another conference match on Wednesday.
