GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland 157-pound senior Kyle John has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestler of the Week after three convincing wins that helped the Terrapins go unbeaten in the Northeast Duals for first time in five trips to the Troy, N.Y., event.

John opened with a 12-2 major decision over Bucknell's John Regan, helping the 12th-ranked Terps to a 40-0 team win. The Coopersburg, Pa., native then scored an 11-1 major decision over Northern Iowa's 19th-ranked David Bonin, keying a 37-6 Maryland victory.

John, who holds the No. 16 spot in the latest InterMat weight class individual rankings, closed the day with a 16-0 technical fall over Central Michigan's Malcolm Martin for points that proved crucial in Maryland's 23-15 team victory over the 21st-ranked Chippewas.
