‘Gotta keep wrestling’ Sanderson says of 5 in finals
The biggest day of the college wrestling season has arrived — the NCAA Wrestling Championships — and, for the fourth year in a row, Penn State has five in the finals.
This time, it’s senior heavyweight Anthony Cassar joining Bo Nickal, Jason Nolf, Vincenzo Joseph and Mark Hall for a chance to forever be known as a national champion.
In addition to those five, Penn State also has true freshman Roman Bravo-Young wrestling for seventh place and Nick Lee still battling through consolations with a chance to finish as high as third.
