Penn State Wrestling’s Head Coach Cael Sanderson Earns 200th Dual Win With Penn State Against Iowa

On Friday’s dual against Iowa, Penn State wrestling head coach Cael Sanderson added another accolade to the record books with his 200th win as the head coach of the Nittany Lions.

Since 2009, Sanderson has had a record of 200-16-2. The last loss came in 2020 against Iowa. Last season, Sanderson also earned his 100th career Big Ten dual win against the Hawkeyes.

Sanderson is no stranger to accomplishments as a three-time Hodge trophy winner, a Big 12 Male Athlete of the Year, and won an ESPY for Best Male College Athlete. He is also an Olympic Gold Medalist.

With Penn State, Sanderson has won 11 National Championship titles, coached 83 All-Americans, and crowned five Hodge trophy winners. Sanderson is also the 12th active Division l head coach to have 200 dual wins with one team, joining defeated Hawkeye head coach Tom Brands.

Sanderson and his crew will be back in action in the annual Bryce Jordan Center Dual at 7 p.m. on Monday, February 12, against Rutgers.
