Thomusseit No. 1, Wiercioch 24th

Off to a 10-0 start this season, which includes three wins over top-10 opponents, redshirt senior Max Thomusseit  is the consensus No. 1 ranked wrestler at 184 pounds in all of this week’s individual polls.
Since TheOpenMat, one of six wrestling publications, began releasing individual rankings during the 2009-10, no other Panthers great has accomplished the feat. The closest was former two-time All-American and Pitt assistant coach Matt Wilps, who spent 13 weeks ranked second at 197 pounds to begin the 2012-13 season.
In addition to Thomusseit’s individual achievement, the Panthers joined the top-10 for the first time this year in the NWCA/USA Today Coaches Poll. They are one of three Atlantic Coast Conference teams in the top-11 and one of four in the top-21. Overall, Pitt still has five top-25 teams remaining on its schedule.
Freshman Cody Wiercioch, a Canon-McMilan graduate, jumped one spot to 24th at 165 pounds.
