Chris Skretkowicz (Hamburg, N.J./Hofstra) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for the week of November 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. Skretkowicz, a senior 197-pounder at Hofstra, upset two-time NCAA finalist Jon Trenge of Lehigh 4-3 in a weekend dual meet.
