Junior Paul Triandafilou won his second Centennial Conference Championship earlier this month for wrestling. Triandafilou won matches against three of the top competitors in the Centennial Conference to secure the title.

This is Triandafilou’s second championship in his three year career at Gettysburg College. This season has been another exceptional one for Triandafilou who has posted a 30-5 record.

Triandafilou also competed on the Gettysburg Bullets football team in his freshman and sophomore season. Playing nose tackle, Triandafilou had 17 tackles in his 11 games over two seasons,

Academically Triandafilou is an English major and Neuroscience minor. He is also a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and the Barbecue Club. Triandafilou is also an intramural supervisor for the Campus Recreation Department.

Triandafilou is looking forward to regionals at the NCAA Division III Southeast Regional Championship on February 23rd in Rocky Mount, Virginia, where he will further represent the Bullets in an effort for a regional championship. Triandafilou has twice been the runner up in the event, and this year he will look to make that final push and come away victorious.

However, in last week’s meet against York College, Triandafilou was injured in his match and had to forfeit. Hopefully, Triandafilou will be able to overcome that injury quickly, as the event is scheduled for this weekend.

Triandafilou and the Bullets head to the regional event in hopes of victory. Their ultimate goal is to win this event, and proceed to the NCAA Division III National Championship in Cleveland, Ohio in March.
