Ohio State’s Snyder avenges loss for third straight Big Ten crown in possible NCAA final preview

  • Published in Sports

Ohio State senior Kyle Snyder’s overtime takedown secured his third straight Big Ten crown with a 4-2 decision over 285-pound rival Adam Coon of Michigan, avenging last month’s loss and pacing his Buckeyes to the overall title in the two-day event on Sunday at Michigan State's Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan.

The 5-foot-11 Snyder (224 pounds) overcame a 59-pound weight disadvantage against the 6-foot-5 Coon (283), a senior who won their Feb. 11 bout 3-1 during an 18-15 dual meet triumph for Snyder’s Buckeyes.

“It wasn’t the most exciting match because there wasn’t a lot of action. I usually try go out there, shoot a ton, be really active and see what happens,” said Snyder, a two-time World Champion and an Olympic gold medalist at 213 pounds, according to Trackwrestling.com. “But with Coon, he’s just really heavy, and his leg defense has gotten better, so I have to be more strategic with what I do. A takedown in overtime is cool. It’s just about making adjustments.”

But everything changed this past Memorial Day when Maryland Men’s lacrosse accomplished something they came so close to but fell short of doing in the past 42 years: winning a national title.

Dubick was part of the Maryland team that won the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship on May 29, defeating fellow Big Ten opponent Ohio State, 9-6. “It’s amazing. You work so hard for so many years growing up as a kid, and it’s an unreal feeling. It’s something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life,” he said.
