Don't even tell me you predicted all ten champs correctly this year because no one expected this many upsets to happen. But, that's why we wrestle in the first place.

This is your complete recap of the 2023 NCAA Wrestling Championships.

Key Stats You Need

If you just want the sparknotes, here they are.

  • Yianni wins 4th title, Cornell's second 4xer.
  • 7 undefeated wrestlers win titles.
  • 4 wrestlers repeat from last year.
  • EIWA & Big Ten claim same # of champs (3).
  • Penn State wins by largest deficit in history (55 pts)

These Wrestlers Defended Their Titles

Sponsored by Defense Soap

Four wrestlers dug deep to defend their titles from last season: Yianni Diakomihalis (149), Keegan O'Toole (165), Carter Starocci (174), and Aaron Brooks (184).

These are wrestlers who take care of their bodies all year round. Part of that includes being cautious about skin infections, dry skin, and other mat diseases.

Can you imagine one of them not being able to wrestle because of that?
