This marks the second time this season Jeremiason has earned the honor.
Jeremiason, a junior 133-pounder from Marshall, Minn., knocked off top-ranked Kyle Pedretti of UIU on Friday night, helping Augustana to a 28-9 victory over the Peacocks. The win secured the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference title for the Vikings, who finished conference dual action with a perfect 7-0 mark.

No. 2 Augustana (14-1) will conclude dual action for the season on Wednesday when it hosts No. 1 Nebraska-Omaha (11-1) at 7 p.m.
