Former Ohio State Buckeye wrestler Kyle Snyder defeated challenger Kyven Gadson over the weekend to qualify to represent Team USA at the upcoming Senior Freestyle World Championships in Kazakhstan.
Snyder beat Gadson two straight matches in their best of three series to earn his spot on the national team.
The match was a measure of revenge for Snyder who as a freshman at Ohio State lost to Gadson in the NCAA Finals for their 197-pound weight class.
Since 2015, Snyder has represented Team USA in his division and has won three world titles including a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics.
Former Ohio State soccer product Nichelle Prince scored a goal and an assist for Team Canada on the way to a 2-0 win over New Zealand in the women’s World Cup.
Prince got her assist first, setting up teammate Jessie Fleming with a run and a pass to put the Canadian team on the board early in the second half.
Later in the 78th minute, Prince knocked in a shot for her first goal in just her second women’s World Cup game.
A native of Ontario, Prince played for Ohio State from 2013 to 2016 and is in the top ten in school history for assists, points, and goals.
Three-star defensive lineman Ty Hamilton announced he will be joining the Buckeyes.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder from Pickerington Central High becomes the fifth in-state recruit for the 2020 Ohio State recruiting class.
Hamilton’s older brother Davon is a senior defensive tackle at OSU.
