Chattanooga senior Josh Condon has been named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for all competition from Feb. 20-26. Condon went 3-0 with a pair of pins to help lead the Mocs to three league wins and the squad’s eighth SoCon title in the last nine seasons.
In UTC's 40-3 win over Southern Illinois-Edwardsville on Saturday, Condon pinned Adam Osmoe in 3:45, and later that day, the 165-pounder pinned VMI’s Mark Darr as the Mocs cruised past the Keydets, 36-3.
On Monday, Condon capped his undefeated week with a 12-7 decision over Campbell’s Paul Duggan. The Camels entered the match 5-1 in league play, looking for a share of the regular-season SoCon title, but were crushed by UTC 30-4.
Condon finished up the regular season 9-5 overall and 6-0 in league matches, scoring pins in five of those SoCon bouts. He’s a perfect 13-0 in league matches in his career. The award is the first of Condon’s career, and he’s the third Moc to receive the honor this season, joining teammates Nick Soto (Nov. 7) and Niko Brown. (Nov. 14).
Up next for Chattanooga is the SoCon Wrestling Championship, hosted by VMI in Lexington, Va., on March 9.
