The Tech’s Athlete of the Week: Joseph B. Silverman ’10

MIT wrestler Joseph B. Silverman ’10 has been impressive all season for the Engineers, but his performance in January 26’s quad meet will be one to remember. In front of his home crowd, Silverman defeated Bridgewater State University’s James Quinlan, the top ranked wrestler in New England and seventh ranked Division III wrestler in the nation at 184 pounds. The 4-0 decision was one of three victories on the day for Silverman, bringing his overall individual record to 21-11 this season.

Despite Silverman’s great showing, MIT still fell to all three of its opponents: Norwich University (36-21), Plymouth State University (35-19), and Bridgewater State College (39-6).
