Athlete of the Week: December 16th- 22nd

Mendham’s Athlete of the Week is awarded to wrestler Dom Digena. Coming off a recent win against Belvedere of 49-18, this year’s varsity team looks fired up and determined to win. This past Saturday at the Bayonne Tournament, Digena achieved 100 career wins. He is the first of his teammates this season to reach 100 wins. Digena expresses that 100 wins are “just a stepping stone for [him]” in his goal of beating the school record for the most career wins. Last year, Digena finished with a record of 41-5 and was ranked seventh in the state. This year, he strives to have an undefeated season and individually place in the state tournament. He recently verbally committed to Arizona State University to wrestle at the highest level (Division I) of intercollegiate athletics. Digena has racked up three wins thus far and we expect that he will continue this winning streak. The next home match is on January 8th against Roxbury: attendance is mandatory!
