Penn State Wrestlers Dominate Ohio State

Senior Ed Ruth returned to the lineup after a one-month suspension (that’s Ruth in the photo above), but it was a redshirt freshman—Zain Retherford—who stole the show Sunday afternoon as Penn State’s wrestlers dominated Ohio State, 31-6, in Rec Hall.

Retherford, at 141 pounds, knocked off top-ranked and previously unbeaten Logan Stieber, a two-time NCAA champion. The two wrestlers were tied at the end of regulation, and Retherford got a takedown in the sudden-victory period to win the match, 4-2. He liked that, and so did the crowd:

The Lions lost only two bouts all afternoon. Among the bigger winners for Penn State were Nico Megaludis, who scored a technical fall in his 125-pound bout; David Taylor, who earned a technical fall at 165 pounds; and Matt Brown (174), Ed Ruth (184), and Jimmy Lawson (285), who all scored major decisions.

I’ve posted an album of photos from the dual on our Facebook page.
