Before becoming one of the best coaches in the history of college sports, Cael Sanderson was arguably the best college wrestler ever, winning four national titles and going 159-0.

Now, two Penn State wrestles have accomplished that feat, and they both made that history Saturday night in Kansas City.

Carter Starocci beat Ohio State’s Rocco Welsh 2-0 to win his fourth national title at the 174-pound class.

Two hours later, Aaron Brooks beat NC State’s Trent Hidlay 6-0 to win his fourth title overall and first at 197, with the first three coming at 184.

Along with Starocci and Brooks winning their fourth titles, Levi Haines (157) and Greg Kerkvliet (Heavyweight) each won their first.
