This week’s High School Wrestler of the Week is Shayne Van Ness of Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey. Van Ness went 7-0 this weekend at Super 32 in Greensboro, North Carolina to take home the title belt at 126 pounds. On his way to victory, he defeated number one ranked and six-time Super 32 champ Adam Busiello (Eastport-South Manor, NY), eighth-ranked Kai Orine (Seckman, MO), and No. 19 and Journeymen Fall Classic champ Ryan Jack (Danbury, CT). Both Orine and Jack are NC State commits. In total, Van Ness outscored his opponents 58-17 including a fall in the round of 32. The New Jersey native was an NHSCA champion in the freshman division a year ago despite being a backup behind fourth-ranked Michael Colaiocco at Blair.
Congratulations to Shayne Van Ness … TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week
