March 24, 2019


Yianni Diakomihalis says he's the baddest man on the planet. He's definitely the best 141-pound NCAA wrestler on it. Again.

Diakomihalis, a Cornell sophomore, rallied to win 6-4 in overtime at the NCAA Division I Championships to defend his title at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Diakomihalis, a 2017 Hilton High School graduate, trailed 3-1 against Ohio State's Joey McKenna but would not be denied his second straight championship.
