Penn State wins 4th straight team wrestling title
March 24, 2019


PITTSBURGH -- Jason Nolf and Bo Nickal came to Penn State after the Nittany Lions had already seized control of college wrestling. The dynamic duo helped them tighten their grip.

Nolf (157 pounds) and Nickal (197) ended their careers with individual championships hours after the Nittany Lions claimed a fourth consecutive NCAA team title and their eighth in nine years.

"They're both just all-in,'' Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said. "They do everything right. I think that pays off in big moments like this.''

With help from 285-pound champion Anthony Cassar, the Nittany Lions totaled 137.5 team points to top second-place Ohio State's 96.5. Oklahoma State was third with 84, followed by Iowa (76) and Michigan (62.5).
