Pat Glory caps the perfect week for Princeton University with NCAA wrestling title

It has been a unforgettable 3 days for Princeton University’s athletic teams.

And Pat Glory added an exclamation point to it all by winning the NCAA 125-pound wrestling championship Saturday night at BOK Center in Tulsa, OK. with a 4-1 win over Purdue’s Matt Ramos.

Glory became Princeton’s first national wrestling champion since Bradley Glass won at heavyweight in 1951 and just the Tigers’ second NCAA champion.

Princeton's Pat Glory, shown exulting after he won his semifinal bout Friday night, became Princeton's first national wrestling championship since 1951 Saturday night with a 4-1 win over Purdue's Matt Ramos in the 125-pound final.

“I’ve seen that picture (the picture of Glass) since before I was a freshman going to ROTC practices,” Glory said while his voice was choking up in an interview on ESPN after he left the mat. “I always wanted to move him over a little bit and make some room for me. I’m just so glad we could do it. I hope it’s a theme to become for Princeton Tigers.”
