Norfolk, VA-Monarch senior Jeff Rusak (Reading, PA) has been selected as the CAA Co-Wrestler of the Week for all matches through December 10. This is the inaugural weekly award for the conference, which recently expanded to 12 teams this fall.

Rusak rolled to a 10-0 record during the first weeks of the wrestling season, capturing titles at the Mat-Town Invitational and ODU Invitational. He also picked up three dual meet wins against the competition at the N.C. State Duals. Rusak currently sports a 110-17 career record and is ranked seventh in the country at 174 by InterMat and Amatuer Wrestling News.

Sharing the Wrestler of the Week award with Rusak is Drexel's Chris Jones. Just a sophomore, Jones won the Cornell Invitational and also went 3-0 at the N.C. State Duals.

The CAA Rookie of the Week award went to Hofstra's Jon Masa, who pinned Iowa's nationally ranked Luke Moffiti.

The Old Dominion wrestling team will be back in action on December 28, when they travel to Wilkes-Barre, PA for the Wilkes Open.
