    Jantzen named EIWA Wrestler of the Week

    Harvard sophomore Corey Jantzen has been named EIWA Wrestler of the Week after winning the championship at 141 pounds at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational, held last weekend in Las Vegas, Nev.

    Jantzen, who was fourth in the EIWA as a freshman, came into the tournament unranked nationally, and was making his first competitive appearance of the season. Seeded ninth in the tournament, he won five straight matches, with four of them seeded higher than Jantzen. Included were falls against No. 18 Chris Bencivenga of UNC-Greensboro and No. 12 Chris Drouin of Arizona State. In the quarterfinal round, he defeated defending NCAA champion J Jaggers of Ohio State, 5-4.

    In the final bout against Tyler Nauman, of Pittsburgh, he was cruising with an 8-0 lead late in the third period. With 15 seconds remaining, Nauman used a cement job to put Jantzen on his back. It seemed like he was about to get pinned, but with five seconds remaining Jantzen seemed to levitate off his back to score a reversal. Back points and a possible fall would have occurred had Nauman's shoulders not been outside the circle. When time ran out, Jantzen had secured a dramatic 10-5 win.
