PISCATAWAY, NJ – After two years of coming up just short, Spencer Lee is a Big Ten Champion.

Lee won by a 16-2 major decision over Purdue’s Devin Schroder to win his first conference title. The junior tallied four takedowns and a reversal in the match. He also had the advantage in riding time. The match was never in question for Lee.

Lee went 3-0 and outscored his opponents 47-5 at the Big Ten Championships.

Three other Hawkeyes will compete in the final round to follow Lee in the championship hunt.
