George Mason freshman Liam DeRenzis has been selected for the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) All-Rookie wrestling team for 2002-03.

A native of Riegelsville, Pa., and a 2002 graduate of Palisades High School, DeRenzis was the 133-pound member of the All-Rookie team as he posted a 7-10 overall record wrestling at both 133 and 141 for George Mason in 2002-03. He competed mostly at 133, going 7-8 overall with four falls and recording a 3-3 mark in CAA dual matches.

DeRenzis placed second at the Virginia Intercollegiate State Championships in January before his season ended with a broken foot prior to the CAA Championships.

“It’s a great honor for Liam to be a part of this team, particularly since he got injured just before the CAA Championships,” said Brian Shaffer, Patriot head coach. “He gained a great deal of experience this season and we look for him to continue the progression next year.”
