Jesse Thielke named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Oct. 21-27



Jesse Thielke (Germantown, Wis./Team Wisconsin) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Oct. 21-27.

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.

Thielke, who won two USA Wrestling Cadet National titles in 2008, was named Outstanding Wrestler at the inaugural USA Wrestling Preseason Folkstyle Nationals on Oct. 25 at Veterans Auditorium in Des Moines, Iowa.

In a battle of Wisconsin state high school champions, Thielke scored a 9-1 major decision over Alex Direinger in the 125-pound finals.

Thielke was a Wisconsin state champion at 112 pounds last year at Germantown High School, while Dieringer won the Wisconsin state meet at 103 pounds at Port Washington High School.

Thielke won USA Wrestling Cadet National titles last year in folkstyle and Greco-Roman, and Dieringer was a Cadet National runner-up in freestyle. Both are nationally ranked this year in W.I.N.'s preseason high school rankings at 112 pounds, with Thielke at No. 6 and Dieringer at No. 12.
