Short Time Shots – February 18, 2018
I love Virginia. The state, not the town that shares the name in the Iron Range of Minnesota. Ok, I've been to Virginia, Minnesota, but that's not important right now. Want to hear a rant? Well, you might not have a choice -- this is Short Time Shots, a look back at the day's scores and more from the world of wrestling for February 18, 2018., I'm your host, Poquoson, Virginia native and Hall of Fame writer, broadcaster and announcer Jason Bryant.
I just want to tell you both good luck, we're all counting on you.
This is the last of the regular season nightly updates and I'll actually be throwing in some of Saturday's stuff here from the NAIA, because my wife just spent a week in California on business and Saturday night, we spent catching up on The Amazing Race and Top Chef.

The Nittany Lions will start next season building on its run of 45 straight dual meet victories.
No. 2 Ohio State looked fairly sharp in winning eight of 10 over No. 6 NC State in front of nearly 4,000 fans at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh. Just one week ago, the Pack set an attendance record, only to shatter it. Too bad the team W didn't follow. Myles Martin beat Pete Renda in a matchup of highly-ranked All-American 184 pounders, but Michael Macchiavello did give the Pack fans something big to cheer about as the North Carolina native knocked off Ohio State's Kollin Moore with two late third-period takedowns. Ohio State's Joey McKenna topped Kevin Jack at 141 pounds, while Hayden Hidlay stayed unbeaten for the Pack, beating Micah Jordan 6-3. The Buckeyes finished the seasRead more »
