Trenge Named TheMat.com Athlete of the Week



Jon Trenge (Orefield, Pa./New York AC) has been named TheMat.com Athlete of the Week for the week of March 23-29. 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. Trenge, seeking an Olympic redshirt year from Lehigh Univ. this season, was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler at 96 kg/211.5 lbs. at the Central Regional Olympic Team Trials Qualifier in Laramie, Wyo. on March 27. With the tournament victory, Trenge has now qualified himself for the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team Trials-Wrestling to be held in Indianapolis, Ind., May 21-23. At the regional, Trenge defeated two-time Olympian and 1993 World champion Melvin Douglas of the Sunkist Kids 4-1 in overtime. The win moved Trenge into the semifinals. Trenge then won his next two matches, defeating Ty Dennis 10-0 and Ryan Tobin of the Dave Schultz Wrestling Club 4-2 to capture the gold medal. Trenge is a two-time NCAA finalist for Lehigh Univ. He holds a career record of 103-10 after his first three years of college. His freshman campaign ended with a 35-3 record, but he was unable to compete in the NCAA Tournament due to a torn retina. He now wears protective eye wear because of that injury.
