Brett Matter Inducted into South Jersey Wrestling Hall of Fame


A two-time All-American (1999-2000), Matter had tremendous success in EIWA competition. Penn’s only four-time EIWA Champion, he was named EIWA Outstanding Freshman in 1996 and in 2000 was the recipient of the John Fletcher Memorial Trophy as the wrestler who made the greatest contribution to the EIWA Tournament. The 2000 season also saw Matter earn the distinction of being named EIWA Outstanding Wrestler. In 19996, in addition to his EIWA Outstanding Rookie honor, he was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year and was named first-team All-Ivy three times (1996, 1997 and 2000). His 128 career wins place him second in program history.
