Jared Reis Finishes Fifth at DII Nationals

Though Napoleon native Jared Reis didn’t achieve his goal of winning a Division II national championship, Reis did become the first Marauder to grab All American honors since 2012.  Reis finished 3-2 over the course of the two day tournament in Cedar Rapids, IA, winning his first two bouts before falling to Pitt Johnstown’s Cody Law 7-4 in the semifinals.  Law went on to win the tournament with a 6-3 victory over St. Cloud’s Larry Bomstad. In the consolation semifinal was pinned in :43 seconds by Nebraska-Kearney’s Matt Malcolm.  In that bout, Malcolm found a deep hi-crotch that Reis attempted to counter with an elevator leg kick.  The move misfired and Reis ended up on his back in a cradle.  In the fifth place match, Reis ground out a 5-3 win over Tyler Meis of Newmann.

In total, Reis finished his stint with the Marauders 11-5.  He also made quite the impression on Mary head coach Adam Aho, who had this to say about Reis via his twitter:
