Penn State Wins Big in Wrestling and Hockey

Last weekend was all about the Nittany Lions, with huge victories for both Penn State wrestling and men's hockey on Saturday.

The day started out with the Penn State wrestling team earning its sixth national championship title in seven years. Later that night, the Penn State hockey team earned its first Big Ten championship title ever, sending them to the NCAA tournament for the first time ever.

The wins were extra sweet since neither was totally expected going into the day. The wrestling team fell short of the Big Ten Championship title earlier this month, and Penn State hockey had fallen significantly in the rankings following its first-ever No. 1 ranking in late January.

The national title marked the end of the wrestling season, but things are just heating up for hockey. Guy Gadowsky and the Nittany Lions are headed to Cincinnati for the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history. They’ll face off against Union College in the first round of the Midwest Regional bracket this Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Penn State is the No. 3 seed in the bracket, with Union at No. 2.

It’s moments like these that prove there’s still a lot more to cheer about after Beaver Stadium closes its gates for the winter.
