NCAA Wrestling Championships 2022: Penn State maintains lead in NCAA Wrestling Championships

Penn State’s Nick Lee made history, and teammate Roman Bravo-Young set up Round 8 with Austin DeSanto of Iowa during Friday’s quarterfinal round at the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.

Penn State completed a full quarterfinal round, with the help of a challenge from a wise coach, to send six wrestlers into Friday night’s semifinals. Lee made the group headlines, dropping 141 pounds to win, becoming the program’s first five-time All-American.

The Nittany Lions (73 points) also took a 10.5-point lead over Michigan in the team standings. Next up: the semifinals, which begin Friday at 8 p.m. at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. ESPN Television will.
