Joe Stolfi - Bucknell's Athlete of the Week

LEWISBURG, Pa. – Bucknell heavyweight Joe Stolfi (Harleysville, Pa./Souderton) earned his fourth career 5th Quarter Fresh Bison Athlete of the Week award on Monday following his 4-0 performance at this past weekend’s Virginia Duals. He helped the Bison to a 2-2 record at the competitive event, including a 25-12 victory over No. 17 Rider.

Stolfi, who is ranked in the top 20 nationally in his weight class, posted two pins, one major decision and a tight 3-2 win by decision to extend his personal winning streak to 11. He is now 24-5 on the year with 12 wins by fall and 18 total bonus-point victories. He now ranks tied for third with Bobby Ferraro on Bucknell’s career pins list with 44 and his 86 career victories overall place him 12th on that ledger.

A two-time NCAA qualifier, Stolfi opened the Virginia Duals with a pin of Nebraska Kearney’s Ivan DeLeon in 2:49. He followed with a 10-2 major decision against Old Dominion’s Matt Tourdot before concluding the first day of the event with a 3-2 decision over West Virginia’s Anthony Vizcarrondo.

Bucknell (6-3, 1-0 EIWA) wrapped up the Virginia Duals Saturday against Rider and Stolfi concluded the victory with a pin of Greg Velasco. It was his sixth pin during his current 11-bout win streak.

Stolfi has been dominant this season and leads the Bison in victories (24), dual record (9-0), wins by fall (12) and major decisions (5). He has top-three finishes at the Clarion Open, Navy Classic and Lock Haven Invitational and is 15-5 in tournament competition.

Stolfi is one of the leaders on the Bison that are currently ranked 25th nationally. Bucknell will be in action this Saturday, Jan. 17, when it hosts George Mason and Sacred Heart beginning at 11 a.m. Both matches will be broadcast live on Bison Vision on the Patriot League Network.
