Jantzen Named EIWA Wrestler of the Week

Jantzen earned his second career EIWA Wrestler of the Week Honor after going 4-0 in his seasonal debut.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior co-captain Corey Jantzen has been named the EIWA Co-Wrestler of the Week after posting a 4-0 record and helping the Harvard wrestling team to a 3-1 mark over the weekend.

Jantzen earned bonus points in three of his victories, recording one fall and two major decisions while making his seasonal debut. His biggest win came via a 7-4 decision in tiebreakers, however, as he knocked off third-ranked and previously unbeaten Mario Mason of Rutgers.

Jansen trailed Mason 4-0 in the second period before an escape and takedown by the Crimson grappler moved the score to 4-3 heading into the third. Jantzen evened the score at four with a third-period escape, sending the match into overtime. Neither grappler scored in the sudden victory period, and Jantzen rode out Mason in the first portion of the tiebreaker. Jantzen scored an escape in the second portion of the tiebreaker, and sealed the victory with a takedown before time expired.

This is the second EIWA Wrestler of the Week honor of Jantzen’s career. He shares the accolade this week with No. 4 Steve Bosak of Cornell.

The Crimson will return to action Saturday, Jan. 4 at the Lonestar Duals where it will meet Oklahoma, Appalachian State and Air Force.
