Seeded eighth, the St. Paris, Ohio, native completed a big run in the consolation bracket to earn his first All-America medal. Brascetta finished the season with a record of 31-7 and placed eighth at the NCAA Championships. He became Tech’s 11th All-American in wrestling with his win over American’s Kevin Tao.
