Greg Kerkvliet Named Big Ten Wrestler Of The Week

Following two strong season-opening performances, Penn State wrestling sophomore Greg Kerkvliet is this week’s Big Ten Wrestler of the Week.

The 285-pound Minnesotan participated in Penn State’s dominant wins over Sacred Heart and Oregon State this weekend. In his first bout against Sacred Heart’s Mark Blokh, Kerkvliet recorded seven takedowns before obtaining the fall at the 3:57 mark of the second period.

Against Oregon State, Kerkvliet faced off against No. 24-ranked Gary Traub. Kerkvliet beat Traub in a controlling fashion 16-0. He picked up only one takedown in the second match but collected one two-point near fall in addition to three four-point near falls

With a 2-0 record and wins coming off of a pin and a technical fall, Kerkvliet led the Nittany Lions to two landslide victories defeating Sacred Heart 47-3 and Oregon State 32-7.

Penn State will continue its season on Army at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 18, at Rec Hall.
