Wrestling’s Blaze Shade Named UNCP Athlete Of The Week

Nov 16, 2015
PEMBROKE – A perfect week on the mat that helped lead the UNC Pembroke wrestling team to a pair of dual meet victories last week has earned junior Blaze Shade UNCP Athlete of the Week honors, athletics department officials announced Monday.

Shade, an Erial, N.J., native, finished the week with a 2-0 record and a pair of bonus-point victories. He began the week with a 17-2 technical fall over Belmont Abbey's Tyler Maclain that keyed a 43-6 win over the Crusaders on Wednesday in the Eastern College Athletics Conference (ECAC) opener for both squads. Shade picked up where he left off on Thursday against Spartanburg Methodist by posting a first-period pin (1:43) of SMC's Tanner Chambers on the way to a 53-0 win for the Braves.

Currently listed seventh in the latest NCAA Division II Wrestling Coaches Poll at 174 pounds, Shade has tallied a perfect 6-0 record this season with one pin, two technical falls and a major decision. A three-year starter for the Black & Gold, he has compiled a 61-20 (.753) career record with 28 bonus-point victories (13 pins, 3 technical falls, 12 major decisions) and is 35-15 all-time against NCAA Division II competition.
