But Nickal prevailed to wrap up the team championship before Ohio State stud heavyweight Kyle Snyder could take the mat in the night's final bout.

Ohio State Buckeyes wrestler Kyle Snyder battles Wisconsin's Connor Medbery during the 285 weight class finals for the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships at Scottrade Center. Retherford added another point on 1:45 of riding time for the 6-2 final. His double-leg takedown after a scramble, for two more points, finished the scoring with a minute left in the match.

"We had some guys put on some incredible performances and they get a card that says National Champion, and that feels great", associate head coach Cody Sanderson said. He'd get another point when Martinez was called for unnecessary roughness after a second-period head butt and fought off Martinez's attacks the rest of the way for the 6-1 win.

Cornell freshman Yianni Diakomihalis used a cradle pinning combination in the last 25 seconds to overcome a 4-3 deficit and defeat Wyoming's Bryce Meredith, 7-4, for the 141-pound championship.

The Big Ten was denied another title at 133, however, as Michigan's Stevan Micic fell 13-8 to Seth Gross, who became the first NCAA champion in South Dakota State history.

Penn State 149-pound senior Zain Retherford capped his third straight flawless season with a 6-2 decision over Lock Haven's Ronnie Perry.

Perry was the first No. 15 seed to advance to an NCAA final.

Retherford ends his season with a 31-0 mark and a 126-3 career record.

Penn State, which trails Ohio State, 80.5-67, in the team standings, advanced five wrestlers to the semifinals, including returning champions Zain Retherford (149), Nolf (157), Joseph (164), Mark Hall (174) and Bo Nickal (184).

Domenic Abounader, Michigan (St. Edward), won 11-9 (TB-2) against N.C. State's Pete Renda in the 184 quarterfinals before losing 6-3 to Penn State's Bo Nickal in the semifinals.

Not only did Anton claim 10th place in the men's epee event at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic/South Regionals, but this is his second time qualifying for the NCAA championship in his three years at Penn State after qualifying for last year's championship and finishing in 11th.

The Lions weren't able to repeat last season's five-for-five feat though, as Mark Hall dropped an 8-2 decision to Arizona State's Zahid Valencia in a battle of unbeatens in the 174-pound final.

No. 1 seed Valencia is 32-0.

First round games begin on Friday around the bracket with the Allentown regional starting at 3:30 on Saturday. With this being his third year at Penn State, Karol is qualifying for the second time. It was closer the second time around with Nickal winning 7-4.

Retherford will graduate as the 10th four-time All-American in Penn State history, having finished fifth and first three times. Penn State needed it, too, because Snyder won the heavyweight title soon after with a 3-2 decision over MI nemesis Adam Coon.

Macchiavello's takedown inside the last 20 seconds of the match snapped a 1-1 tie. Ohio State, Notre Dame (No. 1 seed, East Region) and Michigan (No. 2 seed, Northeast Region) are the other three. Retherford chose down to start the second period and quickly escaped to a 5-1 lead. He was the national runnerup as a freshman.

Anthony Tutolo, who went to Lake Catholic, was pinned in the second sudden victory overtime by West Virginia's Matthew Schmitt during his 133 consolation second-round match.
