Athlete of The Week 3/25: Yianni Diakomihalis

RELEASE: ITHACA, NY– BRSN has named sophomore wrestler Yianni Diakomihalis as this week’s Athlete of the Week. On Saturday, the Rochester, NY native claimed his second consecutive national title for the 141-pound weight class. Notably, Max Dean came very close to his first as he finished runner-up in his 184-pound weight class. The Big Red placed seventh overall, crowning four All-Americans during the three-day meet in Pittsburgh, PA. Diakomihalis became the fifth multi-time national champion in program history. A takedown in the final seconds sent the match to sudden victory where he used a trip for a takedown to knock off No. 2 ranked Joey McKenna of Ohio State, an opponent he already defeated this year. The Big Red sophomore completed his season with a perfect 29-0 record.
