Iowa’s Lee named ‘Most Dominant Wrestler’ in D-I

Spencer Lee

No one in Division I wrestling had a bigger year than Iowa’s Spencer Lee, according to the NCAA.

Lee was announced as the division’s Most Dominant Wrestler, the award given to the wrestler in each NCAA division who averages the most team points per match. Lee went 18-0 this year at 125 pounds, averaging five team points per match. The junior is also up for the prestigious Hodge Trophy, wrestling’s equivalent to the Heisman, and is one of 10 finalists for the AAU James E. Sullivan Award, presented annually since 1930 to the most outstanding amateur athlete in the country.

Lee had the most technical falls (9) of any Iowa wrestler since 1999, the second-most in the country.

The Hodge Trophy award winner will be announced Monday.
