Giaccio Named the Spartan Athlete of the Week for January 14

YORK, Pa. – York College is proud to announce that wrestler Joey Giaccio (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) has been named the Spartan Athlete of the week for the week ending on January 13, 2013.

Giaccio had a great weekend at the Budd Whitehill Duals in Williamsport, Pa. His strong performances in the 133-pound weight class helped the Spartans earn a third place finish at a highly competitive tournament.

On Friday, Giaccio started out with a big 15-3 major decision win over Thiel’s Nick Sutton. Against a tough TCNJ squad, Giaccio stepped up to earn himself an 8-0 major decision victory.

Giaccio proved to be just as strong on the second day of the Duals. Against an extremely talented Wisconsin-Stevens Point team, Giaccio was one of the few Spartans to have success. He earned a technical fall, beating Ryan Osee 19-2. In the last match of the tournament for the Green and White, Giaccio secured a 12-1 win and helped the Spartans walk away third place overall.

Giaccio is undeclared and the son of John and Sue Giaccio.
