Walter Peppelman, Wrestling

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Water Peppelman of the wrestling team has been named the COOP Athlete of the Week for Jan. 21.

Peppelman became just the seventh wrestler in Harvard history to reach 100 career wins after posting a pair of victories over the weekend. On Saturday, the senior trimmed Cornell’s Jesse Shanaman, 1-0, to record his 99th career victory. He followed up his performance on Sunday with a dramatic 4-2 win in the first sudden-victory period over No. 17 Scott Winston of Rutgers, 4-2, to join the exclusive club.

The Harrisburg, Pa., native is 8-2 on the year, including a perfect 6-0 mark in duals for the Crimson.

Harvard hits the road this weekend for a dual against Army Sunday afternoon.
