SCSU’s Shamus O’Grady Named NSIC Wrestler of the Week

St. Cloud State University redshirt senior Shamus O’Grady (Coon Rapids) was named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Wrestler of the Week on Dec. 10.  This marks the second time this season that O’Grady has earned NSIC Wrestler of the Week honors.

O’Grady claimed first place honors in the 184-pound division at the 2012 Holiday Inn/Husky Open on Saturday, Dec. 8 in St. Cloud.  O’Grady dominated competition at the tournament with a perfect 4-0 record.  He scored three falls in his first three matches of the day and this run included a :49 pin against St. John’s Simon Liedtke, a 1:30 pin against Matt Beehler of MSU Moorhead and a 2:45 pin against John DeVito of U-Mary.

In the title bout, O’Grady charted an 8-7 decision win over Luke Rynish.  An unattached wrestler, Rynish was a three-time NCAA Division II runner-up during his collegiate career at UW-Parkside.

For his efforts, O’Grady was named the Husky Open John Oxton Award winner (Outstanding Wrestler) and the Husky Open Jack Gause Award winner (most falls in the least amount of time) for 2012.  O’Grady owns a 7-1 record this season for the Huskies.

SCSU will open its 2012-13 season on Dec. 11 with a 7 p.m. home match against Concordia College in Halenbeck Hall.  Tickets for the match are available at the gate or for more information visit
