LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ -Sophomore Old Dominion wrestler Adam Wright (Dayton, VA), the Monarchs started in the 184 weight class, was named the Colonial Athletic Association Co-Wrestler of the Week, along with George Mason's Adrian Austin for all competition during the first week of February. Wright won all three of his matches last week, including an 8-6 decision over the fourth-ranked 184 wrestler in the CAA, Lantz Nixon of Campbell.
