Jason Nolf is the top-ranked wrestler in the nation at 157 pounds, and the Big Ten named the Kittanning graduate its Wrestler of the Week on Tuesday.

Nolf picked up two dominant victories in Big Ten duals, surpassing 100 career wins in the process. He beat Northwestern’s Ryan Deakin, the third-ranked wrestler in the NCAA at 157 pounds, by a 19-7 major decision for his 100th career victory in Penn State’s 33-8 win on Friday.

He followed that with a 25-10 technical fall of Wisconsin’s Devin Bahr on Sunday, helping the No. 1 Nittany Lions rally for a 24-13 win.

A two-time defending NCAA champion, Nolf moved to 15-0 on the season and 101-3 for his career with the two wins. He has nine pins, two technical falls and four major decisions this season. Earlier this month, he became Penn State’s all-time pins leader while competing at the Southern Scuffle. He has 54 in his career.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
