For the seventh time this season, someone from NC State has been named the ACC's Wrestler of the Week.

Only this time, it isn't a Hidley or Tariq Wilson.

Redshirt freshman Jarrett Trombley is the latest to earn the honor after his pin at 133 pounds helped life the third-ranked Wolfpack to a dramatic 21-18 victory against No. 7 Virginia Tech at Reynolds Coliseum on Friday.

With the team score tied at 15, Trombley took to the mat to face 22nd-ranked Colin Gerardi in the next-to-last bout of the match. It took just 44 seconds for seconds for him to score a cradle off a restart, allowing him to pin his opponent and pick up the points needed to clinch the Wolfpack's comeback victory.

It was Trombley's fourth fall of the season and helped State complete a rally from a 15-9 deficit.

The Wolfpack's win also clinched at least a share of the conferenceregular-season team title for the third straight year. Coach Pat Popolizio's team (14-0, 4-0 ACC) can wrap up the championship on Friday in the regular season finale at Duke.
