COLUMBUS, OH — Notre Dame College has been a force in NCAA Division 2 wrestling for many a year now.
But there’s NCAA DII, and then there’s Ohio State.
Tuesday night at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, the Buckeyes were anything but gracious hosts, handing the Falcons a 51-0 dual loss in the dual-season opener for Notre Dame.
For Falcon freshman Cale Hoskinson (Clay ’21; no headshot available from college), competing in prior open tournaments was not the same as a head-to-head dual against the giant of the state and one of the national powers in Division I, as the Buckeyes’ ninth-ranked Carson Kharchla handed Hoskinson a 24-9 tech fall loss in a match that did go a full seven minutes.
Notre Dame College was off through the holiday weekend and will return to competition on December 4 in-state at the Lake Erie Open in Painesville.
