Penns Valley’s Dillon Covalt is the Centre Daily Times’ Male Athlete of the Week.
The Rams’ junior wrestler was just about perfect this past week, going 7-0 as an individual while collecting four falls, one decision and two wins by forfeit.
At 220 pounds, he was 5-0 at the Juniata Duals on Saturday — with pins against Susquehannah Township’s Troy Ambush (4:50), Trinity’s Max McMurray (5:35) and Selinsgrove’s Aaron Hoke (1:49). Against Bellefonte earlier in the week, he pinned Andrew Davidson in 3:04.
And, when his team needed him to step up at 285 pounds, he even did that too. Covalt earned a 4-1 decision at heavyweight against Hollidaysburg on Thursday.
