The sophomore Manchio started his west coast trip off with a 6-3 win over three-time NCAA qualifier Gabe Townsell (Stanford); currently, 13th ranked 125 lber in the nation.
On Sunday, at the Roadrunner Open, Manchio captured the title by going 5-0. Before the finals, one of Joe's most notable victims was CSU Bakersfield's starter Alex Hernandez-Figueroa, who he shut out, 6-0.
In the finals, Manchio edged Arizona State true freshman Nick Raimo, who, like Manchio, was a New Jersey state champion.
With the 6-0 weekend, Joe is now 11-1 on the season with three falls.
