Only one session left at the 2019 NCAA Wrestling Tournament: the championship finals. Time to crown 10 individual national champions. Here's the list of title matches, in order of presentation:
|285||#1 Derek White||Oklahoma State||vs||#2 Anthony Cassar||Penn State|
|125||#5 Jack Mueller||Virginia||vs||#3 Spencer Lee||Iowa|
|133||#1 Daton Fix||Oklahoma State||vs||#3 Nick Suriano||Rutgers|
|141||#1 Yianni Diakomihalis||Cornell||vs||#2 Joey McKenna||Ohio State|
|149||#1 Anthony Ashnault||Rutgers||vs||#2 Micah Jordan||Ohio State|
|157||#1 Jason Nolf||Penn State||vs||#2 Tyler Berger||Nebraska|
|165||#8 Mekhi Lewis||Virginia Tech||vs||#2 Vincenzo Joseph||Penn State|
|174||#1 Mark Hall||Penn State||vs||#3 Zahid Valencia||Arizona State|
|184||#5 Max Dean||Cornell||vs||#6 Drew Foster||UNI|
|197||#1 Bo Nickal||Penn State||vs||#2 Kollin Moore||Ohio State|
The team title is already locked up -- congratulations on title #8 in the last 9 years, Penn State -- and Iowa is locked into a fourth place finish in the team race. But there's still plenty of individual glory to be handed out, including a possible national title for Iowa's Spencer Lee. Go get 'em, Spencer.
I'll be posting results and discussion in the comments, but feel free to join in, too.
