Competing at 174 pounds, Lantz has two pins and a medical decision in his last three matches. The latter victory came in a 34-6 victory over East Stroudsburg.
"Gary is a 'gamer' because he comes through when it matters the most," Coach Pat Pecora said. "He has overcome an early-season shoulder injury to help lead the team to victory in its final three matches of the first half."
In his first match after returning to the mat he scored a pin in 2:36 in a 47-0 victory over Ohio Valley.
"That pin was huge," Pecora said. "Gary is a great team leader."
The Mountain Cats are ranked 11th in Division II and will return to action Dec. 28 at the Wilkes Open in Wilkes-Barre.
