Sobers, Rosa, and Pfau Named Athletes of the Week

FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga. - This week's Athletes of the Week are Alex Sobers and Thiago Rosa of Men's Swimming, and Cody Pfau of Women's Wrestling.

Returning to the spotlight are both Alex Sobers from Bridgetown, Barbados and Thiago Rosa from Ipatinga, Brazil. Both of these swimmers have been selected as Athletes of the Week once again due to their nearly identical results this past weekend. At the Sun Coast Swim Conference Championships, both Sobers and Rosa captured three first place finishes in 3 relays as well as three first place individual finishes. In addition to helping their team capture the Sun Coast Swim Conference Championship, both Sobers and Rosa were named Co-MVP's of the Sun Coast Swim Conference. 

Not to be outperformed, Cody Pfau of Women's Wrestling also snagged her second appearance on the AOW list. For the first time in school history, the Women's Wrestling Team brought home a National Champion. Pfau dominated her competition at the WCWA National Championship to claim the 109 pound title. This marked her 37th win of the season, to give her an incredible record of 37-0. 

Congratulations to Sobers, Rosa, and Pfau on their incredible performances this week.
