Penn State Wrestling Breaks National Championship Team Score Record

After solidifying the 11th national championship under head coach Cael Sanderson, Penn State wrestling added another accolade to an incredible NCAA Championship run.

The final score of 172.5 overcame the previous record held by Iowa with 170 points in 1997. The win was solidified with a 5-1 finals win from four-time national champion Aaron Brooks.

In second place, Cornell finished with 72.5 points, marking the largest marginal win in NCAA history by more than 100 points.

Following the previous Session V, Penn State was also up at 155.5, which tied the program record for most points in an NCAA Championship.

Four Nittany Lions also took home individual titles en route to the record-breaking performance featuring Levi Haines, Greg Kerkvliet, Carter Starocci, and Brooks.
