Swartz Finishes Seventh at NCAA Championships

March 22, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Boise State redshirt senior Jake Swartz won his final match at the NCAA Wrestling Championships Saturday at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, finishing in seventh place and earning All-America accolades.

Swartz picked up two takedowns and riding time en route to a 6-1 victory over Ophir Bernstein of Brown in the seventh-place match, and was awarded another point when Bernstein was penalized for stalling.

Swartz was making his fourth appearance at the NCAA Championships, but this year's finish marked his first inside the top eight.

The three-time defending Pac-12 Champion at 184 pounds concludes his Bronco career with a record of 91-30, including a mark of 17-3 in his final collegiate campaign.

The Broncos have boasted an All-American in each of the last two seasons, as Jason Chamberlain finished runner-up at 149 pounds last season. Boise State has at least one All-American in six of the last seven seasons, combining for 11 such honors during that time.
