This week’s High School Wrestler of the Week is Michael Colaiocco of Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey. This past weekend, Colaiocco went 6-0 with one fall, two tech falls and two major decisions to win the 126-pound weight class at Beast of the East in Newark, Delaware. Colaiocco became just third wrestler in the history of the tournament to capture four titles, joining fellow New Jerseyans Mark Grey and Nick Suriano. The senior, who came into the tournament ranked third, picked up a 15-6 major decision over ninth-ranked Ryan Jack (Danbury, CT) in the semifinals and then topped 18th-ranked Dylan Shawver (Elyria, OH) 5-2 in the finals. He took home the top spot in a bracket that had five ranked wrestlers including previous No. 1 Robbie Howard (Bergen Catholic, NJ), who took third. Colaiocco will continue his wrestling career in college for Roger Reina at the University of Pennsylvania.
Congratulations to Michael Colaiocco, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week
