Zain Retherford finishes Penn State wrestling career with 3rd title

Austin Rose of Drexel a former Central Dauphin wrestler has early opening shot against Penn State's Mark Hall. Hall prevailed 12-2 in the first round of the NCAA Championships

"Blessed to be up here in Cleveland", Ohio State coach Tom Ryan said.

And because of that Cleveland connection, Ryan believes there will be no shortage of motivation, and he is hopeful for Tomasello can end his run at Ohio State with a return trip to the top of the podium at the NCAA Championships.

Penn State scored the first two points of the game and never trailed as Notre Dame didn't hit its first field goal until almost five minutes in.

Iowa freshman Spencer Lee opened Saturday night's NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships finals with a 5-0 decision over Rutgers' Nick Suriano for the 125-pound national championship. He became the program's second three-time national champ, joining Ed Ruth.

At 157, Nolf took down another Central Pennsylvania native as he won his second crown with a 6-2 decision over undefeated North Carolina State freshman Hayden Hidlay, a Lewistown native.

The Nittany Lions put on an awesome display with a 5-for-5 performance in semifinal round.

Retherford, last season's Hodge Trophy victor, took Lock Haven's Ronnie Perry down twice in the first period and fended off the sophomore the rest of the way to win his 94th straight match and third straight title.

Penn State's Vincenzo Joseph earned his second national title with a 6-1 decision over 165-pound No.1 seed Isaiah Martinez of IL.

"My life is complete, but it will be a little more complete if he manages to win a second national championship".

Joseph used an inside trip, the same move he used to pin Martinez last season, and tilted the IL senior to his back for a 4-0 lead. Mark Hall was the only one of the five to finish as a runner-up when he lost to Arizona State's Zahid Valencia in the 174-pound final. He leapt from the mat, spiked his headgear, raised his arms and roared toward the sizable Penn State section inside Quicken Loans Arena and jumped into head coach Cael Sanderson's arms.

Martin had upset Nickal two years ago in the national final to win the title at 174.

It only took Nickal a matter of seconds to turn a 2-0 deficit into a fall at the 2:29 mark. He posted takedowns in each of the three periods. Penn State needed it, too, because Snyder won the heavyweight title soon after with a 3-2 decision over MI nemesis Adam Coon.

Snyder, the 2016 Olympics champion, wrestled in the finals in each of his four seasons with the Buckeyes.

"This year, the only difference was I knew that was the last time I was going to wear the (Penn State) singlet", Retherford said. The Falcons defeated Robert Morris 5-1 for the AH title Saturday in Rochester, N.Y. The Nittany Lions are one of four teams in the postseason, Notre Dame and MI are in separate regionals around the bracket.
