The wrestling crowd was thrilled to have President Trump in the stands on Saturday
Following his final championship match Princeton’s Patrick Glory went over to the stands and shook President Trump’s hand and thanked him.
What an incredible moment!
Patrick Glory was the first Princeton wrestler to win an NCAA Championship in 71 years.
The Trentonian reported:
The 71-year drought is over for the Princeton University wrestling team.
With one last solid performance, Princeton senior Patrick Glory captured the 125-pound championship at the NCAA Division I Championships at the sold-out BOK Arena on Saturday night.
With his victory, Glory became Princeton’s first champion since 1951 and just the second in the history of the program.
A two-time New Jersey state champ at the Delbarton School, Glory capped off a perfect 25-0 season by beating Matt Ramos of Purdue, 4-1, in the championship match.
Glory forced the action for nearly the entire match, but Ramos was repeatedly able to scramble out of vulnerable positions and avoid being taken down.
