Penn State Wrestling Wins Big Ten Championship

A whole hell of a lot went on in the sports world this weekend, and I'll get to basketball and the Flyers tomorrow, but I wanted to congratulate Penn State on winning its first ever Big Ten Championship in wrestling over the weekend.

Penn State edged perennial power Iowa 139-138 to take home the title. In doing so, the Nittany Lions had five wrestlers win their first individual Big Ten titles. Junior Frank Molinaro (149), sophomores Andrew Long (133) and Quentin Wright (184), and freshmen David Taylor (157) and Ed Ruth (174) won their weight classes. Yeah, a junior, two sophomores and two freshmen.

That investment in Cael Sanderson certainly is paying off.
