Thrive Spine & Sports Rehab Wrestler of the Week: Donovan Catholic’s Dominick Brogna
Every week this season, Shore Conference wrestling fans will have their chance to vote for the Thrive Spine & Sports Rehab Shore Conference Wrestler of the Week on our website.
The Week 5 Shore Conference Wrestler of the Week is Donovan Catholic sophomore heavyweight Dominick Brogna, who picked up the biggest win of his young career to announce himself as a Shore Conference championship contender.
Brogna went 4-0 with three wins by fall during the week, but it was his 4-2 victory over Ocean junior Joe Teresi that made waves around the Shore. Teresi was the SCT runner-up at heavyweight last season before finishing top 12 at the state tournament. Brogna's win wasn't only important on an individual level, it also helped the Griffins to a 37-34 win over a Spartans team that is usually among the best in the Shore and a perennial sectional championship contender.
Since a loss to Toms River North's John O'Donnell, another of the Shore's top heavyweights, in the finals of the season-opening Colt Classic, Brogna has ripped off 13 straight wins to hold a 15-1 record with eight pins.
Last season, Brogna went 18-3 and finished third at the District 28 Tournament and his results so far this season who he's capable of making a deep postseason run.
Brogna was the runaway winner of the poll with nearly half of all votes cast.
