The final d3wrestle.com Wrestler of the Week for the 2013-2014 season is Mike Mui of the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Mui was the 125 lbs. champion and outstanding wrestler at the Centennial Conference Championships on Saturday at Ursinus College. He opened the day with a first period fall before winning a wild 13-10 match in the semifinals against Rob Murray of Stevens. In the finals, he faced 2013 All-American and #2 ranked Chris Donaldson of Ursinus. Mui scored the opening takedown and then added a second takedown, after which Donaldson used an injury timeout. Donaldson continued the match, but when Mui scored a third takedown, the Ursinus wrestler defaulted.
Mui, a sophomore from Hingham, Massachusetts, is 22-5 in his first year of competition for the Mariners. He was 4th at both the York Invitational and the All-Academy Championships this season. In high school, he was a three time Massachusetts state champion and two time New England placewinner. He will next compete this Sunday at the 19 team East Regional held at King's College.
