PRINCETON, N.J. – Excelling in year one on the mats for Harvard wrestling, freshmen A.J. Jaffe and Hunter Ladnier were named to the All-Ivy League second team, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

Wrestling at 141 pounds, Jaffe ranked second on the team with 22 victories, including a team-best nine in dual action. Hailing from St. Charles, Illinois, Jaffe also holds the team lead in pins this season with four. He capped his freshman campaign with a spot on the podium at the EIWA Championships, where he finished seventh.

Ladnier competed at 149 pounds, and advanced to the NCAA Championships after a second-place performance at the EIWA Championships. Recording a 19-win campaign, Ladnier went 6-2 in dual action and tallied three pins and a Harvard-best five triumphs via technical fall. He became the first Harvard freshman to reach the EIWA finals since former NCAA Champion JP O'Connor '10.

Ladnier will join junior Josef Johnson (174) and senior Jeffrey Ott (133) at the NCAA Championships March 16-18 in St. Louis.
