UVU's Kjar Named WWC Wrestler of the Week

(Nov. 24, 2009) CEDAR FALLS, Iowa Utah Valley University junior 125-pounder Benjamin Kjar (Centerville, Utah/Viewmont HS) has been named the Western Wrestling Conference's Wrestler of the Week as announced by league officials on Tuesday.

Kjar the No. 11 ranked wrestler in the country (InterMat), had a very successful week last week where he went 6-0 overall. He also helped his team pick up three dual victories (as UVU has started the season 3-0) and won the NC State Open at 125-pounds.

On Saturday, Kjar went undefeated (3-0) at the NC State Open in Raleigh, N.C., as he defeated The Citadel's Tyler Sim, Hofstra's Jaime Franco and in the title match he beat Tennessee-Chattanooga's Demetrius Johnson by decision, 11-4.

In dual action at NC State, at UNC Greensboro and against Gardner-Webb on neutral territory Kjar beat all three of his opponents. With UVU trailing in the team score late against UNC Greensboro Kjar defeated Eric Chandler by fall (2:15) to help the Wolverines win the dual. He also picked up a 15-3 major decision over NC State's Taylor Cummings, and with his team up big on Gardner-Webb won by forfeit over GWU. After the busy week in North Carolina, Kjar is now 8-1 on the season.

The Western Wrestling Conference is comprised of seven schools including the Air Force Academy, North Dakota State, Northern Colorado, Northern Iowa, South Dakota State, Utah Valley and Wyoming.
