Alex Krom won the individual championship at 141 pounds and the University of Maryland wrestling team finished sixth at the Midlands Championships, its best finish ever at the prestigious tournament.
The Terps had three wrestlers place, as Steven Bell finished runner-up at 133 pounds andHudson Taylor took fifth at 197 pounds. Maryland finished sixth despite wrestling with eight entrants rather than 10, as Mike Letts and Patrick Gilmore were unable to compete.
“It’s a pretty good showing for us,” said head coach Kerry McCoy. “We’re not overly excited about it. To have only eight guys compete and finish sixth is pretty good, and it’s a good barometer to see where we are. We have some work to do to get ready for National Duals and correct some errors, but I’m happy with the way our guys are wrestling at this point.”
