2021 NCAA Wrestling Championships Preview

The Iowa Hawkeyes, who went 5-0 in the pandemic-abridged regular season, claimed their 37th Big Ten title on March 7.

They lead the national championships field with four No. 1 seeds, all of whom are coming off an individual conference title: 125-pounder Spencer Lee, 141-pounder Jaydin Eierman, 165-pounder Alex Marinelli and 174-pounder Michael Kemerer. No other squad has more than one top seed.

Lee, a senior, is seeking his third national title. The 2020 Hodge Trophy winner is 70-5 in his collegiate career.

“Spencer Lee rises to the occasion time after time after time,” Hawkeyes head coach Tom Brands said, according to The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier. “He’s a tough guy, but more than that, he’s a unique-minded athlete. It’s a joy to have him in our room and in our program.’’

Brands added: “He knows that the work comes before the fruits of the labor are realized.’’

Lee is undefeated in seven scraps this year, scoring bonus points against every foe.

“I just go out to score points and really, that’s all I care about. It’s just, ‘What’s next? That’s the next point.’ If don’t wrestle a full match all year, that would be great, but if I do, it doesn’t matter,” Lee said, per The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier.

“I’m ready to go no matter what, seven minutes or more if needed. That’s the mentality instilled upon me. It’s just scoring points every second of every single part of the match and then getting ready for what’s next.”

The Hawkeyes haven’t won a team national title since 2010. The Penn State Nittany Lions have won eight of the nine championships doled out since then; the pandemic dashed the 2020 tournament.

The 6-0 Nittany Lions are one of two squads with a top seed and a pair of No. 2s this time around: Aaron Brooks tops the 184-pound division, and 133-pounder Roman Bravo-Young and 141-pounder Nick Lee are each second in their class.

Brooks and Bravo-Young claimed their divisions’ Big Ten titles; Lee fell to Eierman in the 141-pound final.

“We’ve been training hard this week,” Penn State head coach Cael Sanderson said Friday, according to PennLive.com. “It’s not really a time to rest until after the nationals. We have a couple of more days of really hard training and then we’ll kind of cut back and let these guys get ready for the tournament. Right now, it’s just making sure that we’re ready to go on Thursday and making sure that our technique and our conditioning and everything is up to par.”
