Iowa’s Lee, Minnesota’s Steveson share wrestling’s top award
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa’s Spencer Lee and Minnesota’s Gable Steveson have been named winners of the Dan Hodge Trophy as the most dominant college wrestlers in 2020-21.
It marks the second time in the award’s 26-year history that two wrestlers shared the honor.
Lee won the Hodge last year and last week he became a three-time NCAA champion at 125 pounds. Steveson won his first heavyweight national title.
The winner of the award is determined by fan vote and a committee made up of past winners, retired coaches and select media.
correction: An earlier version of this story claimed that this was the first time in the award's history that it had been given to two recipients. This was in error; the award was shared by Nick Ackerman of Simpson College and Cael Sanderson of Iowa State in 2001.
