LIVE WRESTLING: No. 2 Penn State at NCAA Wrestling Session Three

This day is known by many names: separation day, moving day, judgment day. We’re separating the goats from the sheep in this round. The contenders from the pretenders.

One day into this tournament, and already 90 (of 330) wrestlers have been eliminated from the competition. Those still standing all have aches, pains, a second straight weigh-in - and the competition only gets tougher.

But if you think the bloodiness slows down, you’re sorely mistaken. It speeds up. By the end of this morning’s fight, another 120 wrestlers will have been cut out.

Welcome to Session 3.


Consi2 UN-Keener 133 UN-Montoya (UNCO)
Consi2 8-Maverick 141 10-Smith (CMU)
Quarters 1-ZPain 149 8-Lewallen (OKST)
Quarters 3-Nolf 157 6-Kemerer (IOWA)
Quarters 3-Meatball 165 11-White (NEB)
Quarters 2-Marky 174 7-Lujan (UNI)
Quarters 1-Bo 184 9-Dean (CORN)
Quarters 5-Sugar 197 4-Macchiavello (NCST)
Quarters 3-Nick 285 6-Dhesi (ORST)

Any layups are long gone. Prepare for knock down drag outs with cornered animals the rest of the way.


Place Team Points Quarters Consis
1st Ohio State 36 9 1
2nd Penn State 28.5 7 2
3rd Iowa 27 3 5
4th Michigan 23 5 3
5th NC State 20 4 4

A win in the quarterfinals counts as 7 team points; that’s 1 for advancement, plus an extra 6 for reaching the semi-finals (because semi-finalists are guaranteed to finish no worse than 6th place). Thus, as always, but especially this quarterfinal round, it pays to be a winner.

Helpful hint on mat assignments - it looks like the quarterfinals will be on Mats 3, 4, 5, and 6 - the interior mats, while the consolations (wrestled simultaneously) will be on the outside mats (mats 1, 2, 7, and 8).
