UVA’s Jake Keating named ACC Wrestler of the Week
Continuing his strong start to the 2021 season, the then-No. 19 Keating scored a 4-3 decision over NC State’s No. 10 Thomas Bullard in his first ACC dual since the 2018-19 campaign after redshirting for the 2019-2020 season.
Keating registered the first takedown of the match, used a second-period takedown to regain a one-point lead on his Wolfpack opponent and then held off Bullard to secure the win.
With the victory, Keating improved to 6-0 for the season and moved up four notches to the No. 15 spot in this week’s InterMat 165-pound Division I national rankings.
Keating and the Cavaliers will return to action this weekend when they travel to face No. 8 Virginia Tech in a 5 p.m. dual on Friday (Jan. 22).
