Stephen Doty named ACC Wrestler of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Virginia sophomore Stephen Doty has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestler of the Week after posting three wins - including a pair of ACC victories - while competing in two different weight classes.

Doty filled in for the Cavaliers in all three of their weekend dual matches. On Friday, the St. Louis native wrestled up a weight class and picked up a 5-2 win at 197 pounds over Maryland's Dallas Brown, giving the Cavaliers a late lead in the dual, which Maryland eventually won by a 19-16 score.

On Saturday, Doty moved back down to 184 pounds to wrestle Diego Bencomo of Duke, who owned a 22-11 record coming into the match. Doty rallied from a 5-1 third-period deficit and scored a takedown just before the final buzzer to force overtime. He then took Bencomo down early in the extra session to pick up the exciting win, 7-5.

Doty went back to the 197 class later Saturday and dominated Appalachian State's Jon Hartley, 10-4. With his three weekend victories, Doty improved to 23-9 this season.
