Rutgers gets 1st two wrestling national champs
March 24, 2019


PITTSBURGH -- Ten minutes after winning the first wrestling national title in Rutgers school history, Nick Suriano stopped answering a question about the feat and pointed to a TV in the background of his news conference. He had a proclamation to make about a teammate.

"Anthony Ashnault, on the screen right there, is going to do it next. And this is going to be a day in history. It's a blessing," Suriano said.

Sure enough, after no national champs since 1930, Rutgers got title No. 2 a half-hour later at PPG Paints Arena.
