Seniors Ryan Flores and Ganbayar Sanjaa have been selected as the American University Student-Athletes of the Week presented by GEICO, Department of Athletics officials have announced. Flores and Sanjaa were both honored as All-Americans for the second straight season at last week’s NCAA Championships in St. Louis, Mo.
Flores and Sanjaa became the 15th and 16th in program history to be named All-Americans. The duo also becomes the fifth and sixth student-athletes in AU history to be multiple All-Americans, joining Kyle Borshoff (2009, 10), Mike Cannon (2008, 09, 10), Steve Fittery (2010, 11), and Josh Glenn (2006, 07, 08). This marks the fifth straight year and sixth in the last seven that AU has crowned multiple All-Americans.
Flores finished the tournament with four pins -- matching a tournament-high -- en route to a sixth-place finish in the heavyweight division. He wraps up the season with a 21-3 record, which included 17 falls. Flores completes his two seasons at American with a 47-9 record, which includes 27 pins, the second-most in program history. He is a two-time All-American and a three-time EIWA Champion.
Sanjaa also finished in sixth place at 157 lbs. to culminate a 25-6 season. The two-time All-American ends his two years at AU with a 51-14 mark with 11 pins and six major decisions.
