KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Johnny Thompson will end his college wrestling career with a meager 2-2 record against Minnesota's Ryan Lewis. In NCAA title matches, however, Thompson owns the rivalry, and his latest victory helped Oklahoma State win its 31st team championship Saturday.

Thompson beat Lewis in the 133-pound final for the second year, and teammate Jake Rosholt won the 184-pound title as the Cowboys won their first championship since 1994 and extended their NCAA record for overall titles.

Minnesota, the two-time defending champion, finished second, 39 points behind.

SWIMMING AND DIVING: Maggie Bowen anchored the winning 400 freestyle relay team to cap Auburn's second straight NCAA women's title. It finished with 536 points, 163 ahead of Georgia. ... Kenyon won its 24th straight Division III men's championship, the longest title streak in any NCAA sport or division.

HOCKEY: Harvard forward Jennifer Botterill won her second Patty Kazmaier award as the best women's player.

TENNIS: Agassi gracious in win

Andre Agassi earned the victory. Michael Chang settled for a curtain call. As the two longtime rivals walked off the court after Agassi's 6-4, 6-2 win in the second round of the Nasdaq-100 Open, he graciously took a sideline seat so Chang could bask alone in one last round of applause at Key Biscayne. Chang plans to retire after his 17th U.S. Open this summer.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Wildcat's records missing

SPRING SCRIMMAGES: The Gators' Ingle Martin had the best performance of the three quarterbacks competing for the starting job in Gainesville. He was 9-of-12 for 126 yards and a touchdown. ... FSU redshirt freshmen Wyatt Sexton and Lorenzo Booker played well in Tallahassee. Sexton was 5-of-10 for 190 yards with two TDs, and Booker had 49 yards on three carries. ... Frank Gore led the Hurricanes running backs in Coral Gables, rushing five times for 37 yards and a 22-yard TD.

TRACK: Freeman's streak ends


SAILING: St. Petersburg's Ethan Bixby and Hans Birkholz extended their lead in the 505 Midwinters on Tampa Bay, with locals Lin Robsen and Serge Jorgensen fourth. The Flying Dutchman class leader was Tim Sayles and Pavel Ruzicka of Pennsylvania, with Chris Russick and Stan Hyatt of St. Petersburg second

WINTER SPORTS: Poland's Adam Malysz clinched an unprecedented third consecutive ski jump World Cup title, finishing second in the season's next-to-last event in Planica, Slovenia. ... Referee Ron Pfenning resigned from the International Skating Union's technical committee after being punished for speaking out against a new judging system.
