FloWrestler of the Week: Logan Stieber, TMWC

Mark Fitzgerald Logan Stieber.jpg

Down at his new weight and looking dominant, Logan Stieber made his 61kg debut in a big way as he dismantled the field to claim a berth on his first world team at the Bill Farrell International Open in New York City this past weekend. On the way to claiming the spot, Stieber gave up six total points, which all came in his 13-6 win over bout with Jayson Ness, whom he defeated 13-6.

Stieber bookended the day with 10-0 technical falls. He started with a tech over Andrew Hochstrasser and finished with back-to-back shutout tech falls over Tyler Graff in the best-of-three finals.

It was an impressive showing for Stieber, and it makes him our FloWrestler of the Week.

Other FloWrestler of the Week Nominees:

Chris Gonzalez, Marquette: After dropping the first match of the best-of-three finals against Alejandro Sancho, Gonzalez forced a decisive third match with a win in the second bout before getting the 4-1 win and claiming the 71kg spot on the Greco-Roman world team.

Sarah Hildebrandt, NYAC: Miss "I just won OW" was deserving of the award as she defeated 2012 Olympian Kelsey Campbell and former world team member Whitney Conder in the finals with a pair of one-point wins to win the spot at 55kg.

Alex Dieringer, TMWC: Just two-points. That's all that Dieringer gave up on his way to winning gold at 74kg. The lone takedown that he gave up came in the finals against world bronze medalist Bekzod Abdurakhmonov before scoring eight unanswered points to get the 8-2 win.

Conor Medbery, Wisconsin: Back to business for Medbery as he defeated No. 4 Tanner Hall and No. 5 Michael Kroells on his way to a top finish at the 2016 Journeymen ASISCS Collegiate Classic on Sunday.

Dawaylon Barnes, Oklahoma: The junior college transfer made his presence known early as he pinned No. 13 BJ Clagon of Rider in 4:27 and Izaec Quintanilla in 5:41 before advancing to the finals where he edged Lehigh's Jordan Kutler 3-2 to finish in first place at 157 pounds.
