LA GRANDE, Ore. — University of Providence’s Justin Harbison, a redshirt sophomore, was named the Cascade Collegiate Conference wrestler of the week on Monday.

Harbison, who started the year at 184 pounds, wrestled as a heavyweight at the Tyler Plummer Classic at Dickinson State University. He won all four matches at the tournament by pin, defeating 20th-ranked Phil Rasmuessen of Morningside in 1 minute, 38 seconds in the first-place match.

Harbison is the fifth Argo wrestling to win the conference’s weekly award this season. Shonn Roberts, Adrian Lyons-Lopez, Randy Keesler and John Hensley have also been named the CCC wrestler of the week this season.

Harbison is a Missoula product. He wrestled at Missoula Sentinel High School, where he earned a second-place finish in the 170-pound bracket at the 2014 State AA wrestling tournament.
