LOCK HAVEN, Pa. — Andrew Dunn Jr. picked up the match-winning pin on Jan. 26 at Gannon to remain unbeaten in duals this season. The redshirt sophomore was announced as the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference’s (PSAC) Wrestler of the Week on Monday afternoon, giving nationally-ranked Kutztown University its second straight weekly award winner.
Dunn Jr., a Bethlehem native, improved to 17-2 on the year and 11-0 in duals with a 46-second pin of Gannon’s Keith Swartley, Saturday, sending the 16th-ranked Golden Bears to an 18-17 comeback victory after they trailed by as many as 11 points.
Kutztown’s starting heavyweight, ranked No. 7 in the nation by the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA), defeated No. 8 Jacob Robb of 22nd-ranked Mercyhurst during the Bears’ 23-14 win on Friday night. Dunn Jr. collected 10 back points, two takedowns and a reversal in a 17-6 major decision.
In Dunn Jr.’s 11 dual wins, he’s compiled 57 team points for KU. He currently leads the team in victories and pins (nine).
Kutztown, which is in the midst of an 11-match dual winning streak (11-1 overall), has produced the PSAC Wrestler of the Week each of the last two weeks. Dunn Jr.’s selection follows Connor Rogovich’s on Jan. 21.
