SPARTANBURG, S.C. — The Southern Conference named Appalachian State University Denzel Dejournette as its Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday.

"Denzel epitomizes the way we want our wrestlers to represent our program both on and off the mat!," said head coach JohnMark Bentley.

Dejournette won four matches over the weekend at the Michigan State Open en route to winning the heavyweight division. This marks the third time in Dejournette's career that he has won the weekly award after winnning twice last season.

The Winston-Salem native defeated Chuck Bobby (Bucknell) by a 4-0 decision in the opening round of the tournament. Dejournette won two major decisions over Dimirtus Renfroe (Michigan State) and Newton Smerchek (Central Michigan) to advance to the final.

In the final, Dejournette won a 7-3 decision over Glenn Geurink (Davenport). Dejournette remains undefeated on the year as he improved to 7-0.

With the win Dejournette has now won four of his last six tournaments dating back to last season, including the 2015 Southern Conference Championship.

The Mountaineers are back on the mats in Philadelphia, Pa. on Sunday for the Keystone Classic. Dejournette returns as the defending heavyweight champion after winning the tournament in 2014.
