Feb. 12, 2013
GREENSBORO, N.C. - University of Maryland junior wrestler Jimmy Sheptock has earned Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestler of the Week honors after a pair of dominating performances on Saturday, the league announced Tuesday.
It marks the third time this season the Northampton, Pa., native has earned or shared the honor.
Seventh-ranked Sheptock began Saturday with an 18-3 technical fall over Duke's Dylan Ryan, and closed the day with a 15-0 technical fall over NC State's Keegan Cerwinski propelling the Terps to a win in both matchups.
Sheptock now has five technical falls this season, which ranks second on the team. He also has a team-best 73 dual points and 56 takedowns.
The Terps travel to Columbia, Mo., on Sunday to take part in the NWCA Cliff Keen National Duals. Maryland will compete against No. 6 Missouri, No. 17 Purdue and No. 21 Wyoming.
