    The remarkable run for Ohio State true freshman Myles Martin came to end in the 174 finals at the 2016 NCAA wrestling finals, completing the ultimate goal — a national title. Martin, the 11 seed, made his way to finals only to face the 1 seed Bo Nickal of Penn State for the 4th time this season, losing all 3 of their previous matchups.

    The first period began with a fast pace fury as Martin scored the first takedown with in 20 seconds. The rest of the period would take place on their feet with both wrestlers attempting a couple of shots each.

    Nickal chose down to start the second and earned an escape to tie the match at 2 w 1:47 to go. Nickal scored his first takedown seconds later to take a 4-2 lead but Martin would cut the lead to 1 with an escape. With :25 seconds left in the period, Martin threw Nickal to his back for a huge 6 point move to take a 9-4 lead.

    Martin would chose down to begin the 3rd and final period and would escape to take a 10-4 lead with 1:40 left in the match. Nickal got a takedown with 1:10 left to cut it to 10-6 and Martin escaped to make it 10-7. Martin gave up a stall point late, but won his first national title 11-9.
