Albright Named Spartan Athlete-of-the-Week

YORK, Pa. – Following his New Standard Corporation Invitational championship, York College wrestler Chris Albright has been selected as the Spartan Athlete-of-the-Week.

The 141-pound Albright captured the tournament title in three bouts as he recorded a pair of pins, including one in the final. After his 3-0 performance, Albright now stands at 12-1 on the season.

After a first-round bye, the #1-seeded Albright started his day with a pinfall victory over Elizabethtown's Jarrod Crawley. It took the Spartan only 1:01 to end the match and move on to the semifinal round.

There, Albright squared off with #5-seeded Christopher Collura of Brockport St. The sophomore posted yet another commanding victory, this time by way of a 13-4 major decision.

In the championship bout, Albright once again registered a pinfall. Facing off with Elizabethtown's Nick Grim, the 141-pound Spartan captured the title 4:26 into the match.

Albright's championship is the second in-season tournament title he has won this year as he also took the Monarch Tournament crown to open the season.

Albright and the Spartans will now look to Wednesday evening as they square-off with Gettysburg in Gettysburg, Pa. The dual-meet is slated for 7:00 pm.
