ITHACA, N.Y. – Lycoming junior Chris Dahlheimer has been named the Empire Collegiate Wrestling Conference Wrestler of the Week for his performance in the PA/NY Duals on Saturday, Jan. 3.

Dahlheimer, a native of Felton, Pa., showed extreme versatility in picking up two wins and helping the Warriors go undefeated in the duals.

Ranked fifth nationally at 165, he opened the duals by jumping up to the 174 pound weight class. He defeated Ethan Phillips of SUNY Oswego by a score of 7-0. He then dropped down to the 157 weight class and earned a major decision ( 17 -8 ) over Jason Wake of the Rochester Institute of Technology.

His wins improved his season record to 14-1 and the team’s wins improved the No.25 Warriors to 7-2.

Lycoming will see the mats inside Lamada Gymnasium for the first time this season on Friday and Saturday at the 21st Annual Budd Whitehill National Duals. The Duals will feature 20 teams from all across the country and over 20 nationally-ranked wrestlers. Competition begins at 9 a.m. on both Friday and Saturday and will continue throughout the day.
