Joe Fusco (Billerica, Mass.) of the wrestling team has been named the Springfield College Athletics Maroon Club Male Student-Athlete of the Week after leading the Pride at the Budd Whitehill Duals, hosted at Lycoming College this past weekend.
Fusco, a sophomore heavyweight and Criminal Justice major at Springfield College, fueled Springfield College to a sixth-place finish at the Budd Whitehill Duals, as the Pride picked up wins over RIT, Milliken and SUNY Oswego. On Friday, Fusco produced a win by pinfall to lift Springfield College to a 21-17 win over RIT, before the sophomore came back on Saturday and delivered his second pin of the weekend, this time lifting the maroon and white to a 22-20 win over SUNY Oswego. For his efforts, Fusco was named to the All-Tournament Team.
