BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Baker University's Jarid Price has been named the NAIA National Wrestler of the Week, the national office announced Wednesday. Price was selected based on his performances from Jan. 7 - 13.

Price, a native of Las Vegas, Nev., went 3-0 on the weekend, helping the Wildcats to a 1-2 record at the NWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals in Springfield, Ill., on Jan. 12 - 13.

The 184-pound senior opened the event with a pin of top-ranked Brian Block of Morningside (Iowa) to lead the 12th-ranked Baker squad to a 24-12 upset victory over the No. 7 Mustangs.

Unranked Price continued his dominant performance with a 9-2 decision over No. 3 Thomas Buckman of Lindsey Wilson (Ky.), before wrapping up the weekend with a pin of No. 12 Tuck VanMatre of Southern Oregon.

On the season, Price boasts a 12-8 overall record, including a 6-3 mark against NAIA opponents.

The next Wrestler of the Week announcement will be on Jan. 23.
