one will be talked about for a while. In the end, however, it was none of the above who earned


Outstanding Wrestler honors. That piece of hardware went to Oklahoma State senior 149-pounder Jordan Oliver, who picked up his 100th career victory in a smashing of Air Force’s Cole VonOhlen in the finals. Oliver’s tournament included a pin, a technical fall in the semifinals, and a 21-8 major in the finals. “It was great coming to this tournament,” said Oliver. “Knowing it was going to be great competition, and on top of that, knowing I was going for number 100 in the finals really motivated me. It is a great honor to be a part of that Oklahoma State tradition, to be one of those guys on that list of 100 wins.” Oliver (17-0) won an NCAA title at 133 pounds two seasons


ago and lost in the finals in 2012. Making the move up two weights, he hasn’t missed a beat. “I felt great over the summer, especially training with Coleman


Scott at the Olympics and those 66 kilo guys,” he added. “The guys are a little slower compared to 133 and the weigh-ins defi- nitely are not the same.” An anticipated match with 2011 NCAA runner-up Dylan Ness,


for the second time this season, never materialized. Ness lost to VonOhlen in Wednesday morning’s semifinals; the two also could have met in the OSU-Minnesota dual on Dec. 2 in Minneapolis but the Gopher sophomore was out with an injury. The Cowboys, second behind Penn State, 10.5 points better


than third place Missouri, also crowned Jon Morrison (15-2) at 133 pounds. The junior avenged two losses from earlier this


season, beating Missouri’s Nathan McCormick in the semifinals and Minnesota’s Chris Dardanes in the finals; both matches required takedowns in the final 20 seconds. Minnesota, in second place entering Wednesday, went 3-4 in semifinal matches, while the Nittany Lions won 5 of 6. One of the PSU wins came from James Vollrath – wrestling at 157 pounds in place of Dylan Alton. The PSU junior beat Cowboy freshman Alex Dieringer in the first set of tiebreakers, 2-1. It was Dieringer’s first loss in 15 matches this season. Vollrath lost to Virginia’s Jedd Moore (21-4) in overtime in the


finals. Moore qualified for the 2009 NCAA Championships. Joining Ruth at the top of the medal stand for the current


kings of college wrestling was Nico Megaludis (12-1), who beat Virginia’s Matt Snyder, 8-4, in the 125-pound final, and Wright, who flattened Arizona State’s Jake Meredith with a spladle to claim 197-pound gold. “We are just trying to score a lot of points, that is what we do,


push ourselves to get better,” said Wright (14-0). “This was an opportunity to see where we are at. We were super excited to be here. Everybody is going to get tough matches. “You have to have some tricks up your sleeve. (Meredith) countered a throw in the first period. For us it’s about having a lot of tools in the shed.” Cornell’s Mike Nevinger (24-6) used a third period takedown


to beat The Citadel’s talented freshman Ugi Khishignyam, 3-2, for the title at 141 pounds. It was just Khishignyam’s third loss in 27 matches this sea-


son. for 2013
