Gannon's Costa Named D2Wrestle.com Super Region One Wrestler of the Week
ERIE, Pa. - Gannon's Nicholas Costa (Brick, N.J./Brick Memorial) has been named D2Wrestle.com Super Region One Wrestler of the Week.

Costa won his second consecutive 184-pound title last Saturday with a gold medal at the Findlay Open. The redshirt freshman moved to 8-0 with one pin and one major decision after winning the title with a perfect 5-0 record.

The Brick, N.J., native's toughest match arguably came during the first bout when he defeated Wheeling Jesuit's Garrett Reinwald 2-1 on the first tiebreaker. Costa defeated a pair of NCAA Division I wrestlers during his run with a pin of Ohio's Gabe Dzuro (2:16) and 5-2 victory against Michigan State's Wesley Maskill in the semifinals. He then captured the championship with a 15-9 win against Wheeling Jesuit's Ryan Winslow.

Costa won the 184-pound division at the Mount Union Invitational on November 21, helping Gannon finish second out of nine teams during the Golden Knights' first action of the season. Saturday's title was the third of his career despite being a redshirt freshman after winning the Jamestown Jayhawk Open last year as an unattached wrestler.

Gannon has two weeks to prepare for the 2015 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championships scheduled for Saturday, December 5 at Mercyhurst. The Golden Knights finished eighth out of 12 teams at last year's conference championships that included four NCAA Division I programs.
