Rose Named to VASID All-State Team

Buena Vista, Va. - The awards keep coming for two-time national champion Peter Rose. Rose was recently named to the Virginia Sports Information Directors All-State Wrestling Team for the second consecutive year.

This award appropriately honors Rose for his outstanding 2008-2009 season, in which he won the national championship for the National Collegiate Wrestling Association 157 lb weight class, and was named an NCWA All-American with a record of 29-1.

The award puts Rose into elite company, since the majority of award recipients were from NCAA Division I schools in Virginia. Two other award winners were from The Apprentice School, which is a fellow NCWA member with Southern Virginia. Rose will be returning to SVU for his senior year, where he will attempt to win his third national title in a row. During the 2009-2010 season, Rose will also be wrestling for the best career record in SVU wrestling history.
