SPARTANBURG, S.C. — For the second consecutive week, Denzel Dejournette is the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday.

"I'm proud of Denzel and the continual improvements he is making," said head coach JohnMark Bentley. "He's having fun and just enjoying the sport."

Dejournette went 4-0 over the weekend at the Keystone Classic en route to his second-straight first place finish at the tournament after winning the title in 2014. The No. 12 nationally ranked heavyweight is now 11-0 after back-to-back tournament wins this season.

Dejournette won his opening match of the Keystone Classic by major decision over Ray Sherwood (Sacred Heart). The Winston-Salem, N.C. native then use a technical fall over Alexander Foley (Drexel) and a pin over Mauro Correnti (Rider) to reach the final.

In the final match, Dejournette won an 8-2 decision over No. 19 Ryan Solomon to claim the title.

The honor marks the fourth time in Dejournette's career that he has won the Southern Conference weekly award. Dejournette was also named Wrestler of the Week in back-to-back weeks in the 2014-15 season.

With his latest tournament win, Dejournette has now won five of his last seven tournaments dating back to last season.

The Mountaineers return to action on Sunday, Nov. 29 in Chapel Hill, N.C. against the UNC Tarheels.
