BREAKING: Nick Suriano out of NCAA Wrestling Tournament

New, 51 comments

Penn State’s road to national title just got that much more difficult

Penn State wrestling announced in a tweet today that 125-pound freshman Nick Suriano will not be able to wrestle at the 2017 NCAA Tournament in St. Louis.

Suriano has missed the last four weeks with an ankle injury sustained against Oklahoma State in the final dual season. He was forced to default out of the Big Ten tournament with the injury but still received the 3-seed for NCAAs.

Now it appears Penn State will need a sterling performance to take home its sixth national title in seven years with Suriano unable to provide team points.
