This week’s High School Wrestler of the Week is Beau Bartlett of Wyoming Seminary in Kingston, Pennsylvania. Bartlett, a junior who came to Wyoming Seminary from Arizona, took home the 132-pound National Prep championship over the weekend with a 20-13 victory in the finals over No. 2 ranked Shayne Van Ness of Blair Academy. This was Bartlett’s second win over Van Ness and the third time the two had met this season. Bartlett entered the tournament as the top seed and was a defending National Prep champion at 126 pounds. On his way to the finals matchup with Van Ness, he picked up four victories including two by fall and two by major decision. In Wednesday’s rankings, Bartlett will be the new highest-ranked underclassmen at 132 pounds and is a highly sought after college prospect.
Congratulations to Beau Bartlett, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
