LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ. - Old Dominion wrestler James Nicholson was named the Colonial Athletic Association Wrestler of the Month and brother John Nicholson was selected as the leagues Rookie of the Month, the CAA announced Thursday.

James Nicholson, a junior from Des Moines, Iowa, had an impressive month of November. The 125-pound wrestler won his weight class at the Hokie Open and picked up a victory in his lone dual meet against nationally-ranked Wisconsin. Nicholson is ranked No. 5 nationally by both Armature Wrestling News and Intermat.

Freshman John Nicholson has compiled a 13-1 record thus far in 2009. He won his weight class at both the Hokie Open and the Kaufman/Brand Open and finished third at Lock Haven's Mat Town Open.

The Monarchs are now set to compete in the Las Vegas Invitational in Primm, Nev. Eight Monarchs will be battling through a very competitive field, including James Nicholson. Seeds will be announced later today.
