Taylor Named CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week

NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Coast Guard senior Luke Taylor has been named CGASPORTS.com Athlete of the Week for his performance last week.

Taylor wrestled in two of the Bears’ three matches last week – both coming on Sunday – where he went 2-0 with one victory each by pin and tech. fall.

Against Bridgewater State, Taylor recorded a pin of Tyler Budley in a remarkably quick time of 31 seconds. His encore performance was impressive as well; he earned a 16-1 tech. fall victory over Justin Marsh of WPI.

Taylor, wrestling exclusively in the 174-pound weight class, finds himself in position to make a strong showing at the Northeast Regional with his late-season return to the mat after missing some time with injury earlier in the season.

Coast Guard returns to action on Saturday, February 15th when they take on Rhode Island College and host Trinity in Hartford at noon.
