Southern Conference champion and automatic NCAA Championships qualifier Jonathan Millner of App State has been named the SoCon Wrestler of the Month for February.
A redshirt junior from Greensboro, Millner went 4-0 last month with three wins against ranked opponents, including a 2-0 victory against Campbell’s Joshua Heil during a top-15 showdown in the SoCon Championship final at 149 pounds. At the time, Heil was ranked 11th in the country at that weight, and Millner has earned a No. 7 seed in his 33-man bracket for next week’s NCAA competition in St. Louis.
In February, Millner also had two major decisions against another ranked opponent, Selwyn Porter of The Citadel, after posting a 10-0 major decision against VMI’s Job Chishko. Millner won by scores of 13-1 and 10-2 (in a SoCon semifinal) against Porter, a 2020 NCAA qualifier.
Millner is 13-1 on the season after qualifying for the NCAA Championships for the second straight year.
