2016-17 Wrestler of the Week

Wrestler of the Week: Each week of the season that competition takes place we will attempt to name a Wrestler of the Week.  You can send your nominations with detailed reasons for your nomination to WOW@longislandwrestling.org.

 


The LIWA Wrestler of the Week for the week ending December 4, 2016 is junior Matt Mustakis of East Meadow. After some time away from the mat, defeating a much bigger opponent, Matt won the 106 lb bracket at “Battle at the Beach.” He was 3-0 on the day including a 7-0 finals win over county runner-up, Pablo Martinez of Long Beach. Congratulations Matt!
