FloWrestler Of The Week: Trevor Mastrogiovanni, Blair

Trevor Mastrogiovanni came into Ironman unranked and walked out with the title in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on Saturday.

The Blair Academy (NJ) sophomore was an absolute terror in the tournament's 113-pound bracket. Mastrogiovanni gave up just six points, with five of them coming in his first bout of the tournament, which he won 11-5 over Tristan Lujan of Selma (CA). After that, Mastrogiovanni recorded a pair of shutouts in the semis and finals with an 11-1 major decision in the quarters.

In the semis he showed off from every position as he took down and turned multiple time Fargo champ Dylan Ragusin to get the 8-0 major. Mastrogiovanni kept rolling in the finals to claim the title with another shutout win over Cadet Greco world runner-up Cevion Severado, 7-0. 

Trevor Mastrogiovanni’s dominant path to a title makes him our FloWrestler of the Week.
