Seth Bregman (Aurora, Colo./Colorado BJJ) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for April 10-16.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level. The announcement will be made each week on Wednesday.

Bregman was selected by the officials as the Outstanding Wrestler in the men's division at the U.S. Sombo Nationals and World Team Trials, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., April 7.

Bregman was the champion at 74 kg/163 lbs. In the championship finals, Bregman stopped Roman Mitichyan (Glendale, Calif./Hayastan), 5-3 for the gold medal.

Bregman won four matches on the way to the title. He opened the tournament with a 13-0 technical fall over Robert Lusk of J.E.T.S./No Limits, then scored a submission of Enrique Manibusan of the Spartan WC in 5:00. In the semifinals, he had a 2:51 submission victory over Ara Muradyan of Hayastan.

Bregman qualified to compete on his first USA Wrestling World Sombo Team with the victory. Winners in the tournament qualified to compete at the World Sombo Championships in Antalya, Turkey, Sept. 7-9.
