Our final match announcement for Who's #1 features an East-vs-West battle as California state champ Sonny Santiago will face Akron finalist Travis Mastrogiovanni.
Sat. Oct. 5 | 5 PM Eastern
Santiago was ranked 18th on the latest 2020 Big Board. The senior at St. John Bosco was sixth in the CIF as a sophomore and is looking to finish off his career as a two-time state champ. Training out of the Sunkist Kids Monster Garage, Santiago is committed to Arizona State.
After suffering a concussion at Ironman to open his season, he missed most of the year but was able to return for the postseason. Included in his state title run was a semifinal win over Jace Luchau, who wrestled at WNO last year.
Mastrogiovanni is a rising junior at Blair Academy in New Jersey and is ranked #4 on the 2021 Big Board. He is uncommitted as of now but his brother Trevor (who is also wrestling at WNO) is going to Oklahoma State.
A two-time National Prep finalist, he won the title this year. He was also third at Ironman and second at Beast of the East this past season for Blair. In Akron, he took the first match of the best-of-three series from fellow WNO competitor Alex Facundo.
This will be the seventh match on the card and they will be wrestling folkstyle.
