RELATED INFO

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - For the second season in a row, Ohio State Wrestling claimed the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational team title. The Buckeyes cleared the field by 15.5 points despite lacking the services of three All-Americans (including two national champions) missing from the lineup. Three individual champions were crowned while donning the Scarlet & Gray -- Luke Pletcher (133 lbs), Myles Martin (184 lbs) and Kollin Moore (197 lbs). In addition, four more Buckeyes found their way to the podium and placed inside the top-4 of their respective weight classes.

The Buckeyes wrestled 50 bouts over the course of two days, winning at a 78% rate (39-11). Bonus points came in a flurry as well, racking up seven pins, three tech falls and six major decisions (16 of 39 matches).

M. Jordan rattled off three falls and a major decision single-handedly. Martin wasn't far behind with a pin, two tech falls and a major decision.

Pletcher, Martin and Moore each extended their flawless season ledgers while capturing individual crowns. Pletcher and Martin improved to 13-0 and Moore now sits at 9-0.
