DURHAM, N.C.-Fresh off of winning a title at the Hokie Open, Duke University redshirt freshman Conner Hartmann has been named the ACC Co-Wrestler of the Week. Hartmann captures the honor for the first time in his career and shares it with Maryland's Geoffrey Alexander.

In addition to the ACC weekly honors, Hartmann climbed into the WrestlingReport.com national rankings at the No. 22 spot for 197 pounds. Three other Blue Devils are among the top 32 in the polls.

Hartmann posted a 4-0 record, including beating two of the top three seeds at the tournament, en route to the championship. The Port Orchard, Wash., native gave up just five points overall and kept two opponents off the scoreboard in the four matches. Two of his wins came against ACC opponents, including the 6-3 title win over Antonio Girogio of North Carolina. Hartmann tops all ACC wrestlers at 197 pounds in the rankings.

Joining Hartmann in the WrestlingReport.com rankings are Diego Bencomo at 24th in the 184-pound division and Brandon Gambucci and Tanner Hough at No. 31 in the 133 and 141-pound classes, respectively.

Bencomo, a redshirt senior, also had a strong opening weekend to the season as he took home runner-up honors at the Hokie Open. The Phoenix native posted a major decision and two decisions to earn a spot in the title bout. Up against top-seeded Dan Rinaldi of Rutgers in the final, Bencomo narrowly fell 3-2. The runner-up finish was Bencomo's highest finish at the Hokie Open in his career.

Hough opened the season with a tough 8-4 setback before rebounding with three victories in the consolation bracket. He ultimately fell to the No. 2 seed in the tournament in a hard-fought 6-4 decision.

Overall at the Hokie Open, Duke finished with eight guys posting winning records and three wrestlers placing among the top six.

The Blue Devils are back in action Nov. 11 at the Michigan State Open.
