Coast Guard junior Nate Giorgio has been named CGASPORTS.com Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Division III Northeast Regional over the weekend.
The All-American wrestled his way to a third place finish at 133 pounds to secure his third straight trip to the NCAA Championships. He placed fourth nationally at 125 pounds to earn All-America honors as a freshman before winning one of three matches last season.
Giorgio, the #3 seed in his weight class, advanced to the semi-finals on Saturday before dropping a 7-6 decision to the #2 seed Silas Murray. He would register an 11-1 major decision in the consolation bracket semi-final to earn a spot in the third place match where he would win a 4-0 decision over Patrick Lacroix to get the automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.
Giorgio will wrestle again on March 14th when he competes at the NCAA Division III Championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
