EAST LANSING, Mich. - Ohio State grasped the 2018 Big Ten Wrestling title at the conference championships Sunday.

The 10-man lineup captured four individual titles, seven finals appearances and nine top-3 showings. All 10 Buckeyes also earned automatic bids to the 2018 NCAA Championships (March 15-17) in Cleveland.

Ohio State accumulated the most team points (164.5) at the conference championships in 16 years (Minnesota, 174.0 in 2002).

Nathan Tomasello (125), Joey McKenna (141) , Kollin Moore (197) and Kyle Snyder (Hwt) won individual titles.

Ohio State registered an overall record of 33-7 for the weekend. This marks Ohio State's fifth Big Ten Wrestling title in school history (1923, 1951, 2015, 2017, 2018).

"What a great weekend. This is a special team that we knew what they were capable of, but knowing what a team is capable of and seeing it come together the way we did this weekend is pretty special, so really proud of the effort across the board, every weight class. It was a good championship. We’re looking forward to Cleveland in two weeks," Ohio State Coach Tom Ryan said.
