Penn State freshman wrestler Beau Barlett had a memorable weekend as he won a junior national championship at 65 kg in Iowa.

Bartlett, who went 8-3 for the Nittany Lions this past season between 141 and 149 pounds, went 8-0 at the Junior National Championships to earn a spot on the U.S. Junior National Team.

Here’s more information on Bartlett’s impressive achievement from GoPSUSports.

The Nittany Lion true freshman went 6-0 in the preliminary bracket to earn a spot in the best-of-three finals. He picked up five technical superiority victories and one fall on his way to the championship series. Bartlett then won two straight matches over Chance Lamer in the finals to win the 65 kg crown and earn a spot on the U.S. Junior National Team.

Bartlett went 8-3 as a true freshmen during Penn State’s abbreviated 2020-21 campaign this past year. He began the year at 141 but moved up a weight to 149 as the season wound down. Bartlett had two pins and a major and, like all Nittany Lions who competed this year, retains the year of eligibility.
