Sophomore Frankie McLaughlin IV was named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Co-Wrestler of the Week for his performance in three dual matches during the final week of the 2008-09 dual season.

McLaughlin improved his record to 23-9 overall with the three victories.

McLaughlin started the week with a 10-4 decision over Julian Colon of Liberty before earning a CAA dual match win with an 8-2 decision over Drexel’s Billy Haydt in Mason’s 18-17 victory.

In his final match of the week, McLaughlin won a close 6-5 decision against Kyle John of the University of Maryland.

McLaughlin split the weekly award with Doug Umbehauer of Rider University.

With the 2008-09 dual schedule complete, the Patriots look toward the 2008-09 CAA Wrestling Championships, hosted by Old Dominion University. The two-day championship tournament is scheduled to begin on March 6 and wrap up the next day.
