NCAA Wrestling Championships: Penn State's Quentin Wright Denied At 184 Pounds

Penn State's Quentin Wright was denied the Nittany Lions' fourth individual national title of the night on Saturday when he fell to Steve Bosak of Cornell, 4-2, just missing his second-straight crown at 184 pounds.

The loss capped a 30-4 season for the junior from Wingate, who was named one of Penn State's six All-Americans this season, all this a year after a 5-2 win against Lehigh's Robert Hamlin made him a national champion. This season, he defeated Thomas Ferguson of North Carolina, Ben Clymer of Hofstra, Ben Bennett of Central Michigan and Hamlin once again on his way to the loss in the final.

Sophomore Ed Ruth (174 pounds), sophomore David Taylor (165 pounds) and senior Frank Molinaro (149 pounds) were successful in their bids for national championships for on Saturday. Wright joined Nico Megaludis, who fell at 125 pounds, as a championship bout loser. The Nittany Lions wrapped up the team championship on Saturday morning when Dylan Alton turned in a third-place finish. The three victories only strengthened the Lions' already insurmountable position.
